I don’t normally watch commercials because I watch everything on DVR…I miss out on most movie trailers that way, but hey, that’s what Twitter is for, right?
While watching last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, I undershot my fast forward and ended up catching the end of a new Dr. Pepper commercial for their new TEN soda…
And apparently, it’s NOT FOR WOMEN.
At least, that is what the commercial said.
Does Dr. Pepper realize that they just alienated half of their consumers? I understand that they want to appeal to men, but this seems like a very half-assed way to do that. Don’t the Dr. Pepper commercial writers have any better ideas? How did their advertising department not realize that this would alienate their female fans?
I grew up drinking Dr. Pepper – I love all of their products, including the diet products.
Well, at least I used to.
I don’t think I’ll be drinking Dr. Pepper anymore. You know, because it’s not for women.
