In 1985, Coca-Cola Introduces the 3-liter “Thirst Buster”


Not only was I still in the throes of Ghostbusters fandom when this commercial hit the airwaves, but I was also starting what would become a hardcore soda pop habit. I remember bringing my first 3 liter home and my Grandmother staring at it in disbelief. I distinctly remember her telling me that there is no way a household should be able to finish something that large before it loses its carbonation. Since only my Mom and me drank soda, and my consumption was now being tightly monitored, she was right. Still, the novelty of this large-sized bottle has stuck with me, as has this commercial.

Who you gonna call?
