Fanta — CGI Fanta World

Friday, March 25th, 2011

jtherkal: Nooooooooooo! Noooooooooo! You killed off the Fantanas, those four vibrant, beautiful ladies who sang catchy songs about Fanta? I can’t tell you on how many levels this is the wrong move. First, everyone knows that all you need to be successful in advertising is a catchy song (sorry Arby’s). And “Don’t You Wanna Fanta” was it! You look hot in all that plaster, drink some Fanta, faster, faster! Brilliant. Second, never replace hot girls with CGI people who have strange worm lips. And third, the Fantanas were an icon. When I tried to find the original spot on YouTube, I had to sort through all kinds of remixes and imitations, etc. That’s the ultimate success, when people are remaking your ad! Fail fail fail. F.

In related news, I had one roommate, who whenever he introduced me to people would say that I write ads and that I wrote the Fanta commercials, which is false. I wish I had.

sjbooher: The only reason this is not an A for me, is because I agree that they should not have stopped the old campaign. It was very memorable, catchy, all that. I like this new on too though… but I doubt it has the same impact.

(sorry for the poor quality, best I could find)
