Just wait until they start doing retro-lawsuits, like in Restaurant at the End of the Universe. :)

Could we suddenly end up with an extra commandment do you think? All bibles will change to have no. 11, "Thou shalt drink no other cola but Pepsi"
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Welp, that's one I'll be breaking right away. :)

Actually, speaking of weird ads and Cola, did you ever read the first Red Dwarf novel, Dotsie? One sequence involved a series of supernovae being detonated in order to create, in the sky of Earth, a months-long advertisement reading "COKE ADDS LIFE". In fact, Kryten was on one of the ships involved.... :?

I think I read about half of the first novel, I think I read that bit. :lol:

Ahh, I see. :)

Actually, that sort of retro-advertisement sounds like something the Meddling Monk would do.
