« Super Bowls Ain't What They Used to Be | Main | Valentine's Day for Dummies »

Brown? Bubbly? Bueller?... BUELLER?

No one knows what the hell Pepsi was thinking when they decided to center their Super Bowl ad campaign around the new domain BrownAndBubbly.com. Maybe there's something in the sugar water over there at PepsiCo.

I have, however, dug up some information on what those cola kooks were thinking before they settled on that domain. And so, I bring you a brand spanking new list of:

Domains Considered By Pepsi Before Settling on 'BrownAndBubbly.com'

SweetAndSugary.com

CarbonatedAndWet.net

CaffeineAndCavities.com

CokeSucksABigFatWeenie.edu

TanAndEffervesh-Effervensc-Efferfesc-*Bubbly*.com

ItMightNotRot_ALL_YourTeeth.org

AnyDomainThatDoesn'tEvokeImagesOfDiarrhea.com

OrGaryColeman.com

IfWe'reThisDesperateTheColaWarIsAlreadyLost.net

Googel.com

On the news this morning I saw this commercial being shown, but I didn't realize there was a URL for brownandbubbly.com. That's just crazy. I nearly crapped myself checking out the site...I guarantee someone sues PepsiCo for some unfortunate brown and bubbly accident in their pants due to the utter stupidity of the ad and the domain name. Dang...

Between that and actually putting Jay Mohr in those commericals for the Diet Pepsi during the Superbowl(I think Jay Mohr is an asshat, I too was wondering what in the hell they were thinking in their promotions and advertising departments.

"CokeSucksABigFatWeenie.edu"

There's a whole college dedicated to sucking big fat weenies? I really did go in the wrong direction.

This needs to go straight to McSweeney's, if you haven't sent it in already. It's...brown-o-fizzeriffic!

God, I'm so glad I hadn't made my coffee yet, 'coz it would bee all over my screen right now! I, too, thought that "brown and bubbly" was just asking for all sorts of poo metaphors. "Goo-gel", indeed...

Maybe I should go make that coffee now, so that I can regain the ability to spell. That's "be", not "bee"...
