Attack of the Killer Orange Soda Oranges?

This classic ad for Minute Maid soda always gives me a chuckle, especially the part with the dog catcher reminds me of the silly humor in the cult classic, “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”.

I drank a lot of orange soda as a kid. We had a local soda company in our town that delivered to your house and while their cola was not very good, their orange and grape were excellent. When they went out of business, I jumped around between other brands and for many years those black and orange labeled Minute Man 2-liters had a home in my fridge.

On a side note, I have never liked the bunched up sock with tucked in pants look.
