    with the risk of this being sent to the Wasteland, was watching Family Guy and one of those pop culture things came up that I just didn't get because I'm not from US of A.

    Jug full of red liquid burst through a wall shouting "oh yeah"
    Jug of red liquid sitting on a couch, car drives through wall, red liquid says it's really annoying when that happens to him.

    What product is this and why is it funny? (Could probably find it on You Tube if I knew what the stuff was!)

    Thanks!

    Kool-Aid and one of Kool-Aid's ads was a jug of Kool-Aid bursting though a wall.

    Found it on You Tube, seems like a 70s/80s nostalgia kind of drink (I suppose us in the UK would think the same about Um Bungo!) Some of the ads are hilarious (because they are so cheap and cheesy but in a nice 80s kitsch way!)

    I was lost without a brand name, thanks!

    *Edit Just found an ad with The Monkees and Bugs Bunny! It's so funny I'm not sure if it's a fake, a Monkees spoof or real because they actually did take money or any kind of promotion!

    Nope, Kool Aid is still around and as delicious as ever ;)

    The commercials haven't been on TV in ages though. I miss them :(

    And the term drinking the kool aid comes from a cult that died after drinking spiked kool aid.

    Only thing that tops Kool Aid is Bug Juice - (which is made from Kool Aid) Yeah, my scout master (back in the day) got the bright idea to teach us that boiling water and dumping kool-aid in until it won't be dissolved anymore - then letting it cool.

    It's like liquid crack and speed for little kids. I think I finished 6 merit badges in 3 minutes.
    :eek:

    I miss sending in those little Kool-Aid stamps and getting free prizes in the mail! Oh Yeah!
