Ah, good ol' Skip It. Can't forget the classics...

Speaking of classics, remember this? "We got soda, OJ, purple stuff..."

Those amused me for two reasons. One, I always wanted to know what "purple stuff" was, and two, even then I was sorta left wondering what the difference between Sunny Delight and orange juice was.

One is made from squeezed oranges, the other is made of C.I. 12156-colored sugar water. :P

I'm assuming Sunny Delight is the latter. TboneLaughCait

You know, it just occurred to me that there was always something missing from those ads. In fact, I have to ask...

Remember the days when you thought, "Hey, it could happen"?

Of course. ;)
Funny, considering the original commercials advertised it as being healthy. Which even back then struck me as weird. Like, how is it healthier than regular orange juice, which the kids shove aside in favor of Sunny D? It's weird seeing a commercial where people reject one thing for what is basically the same thing. Though it seems like Sunny Delight was originally advertised as what amounted to "orange juice plus."

And as we all know:

Oooooh man, I haven't thought of that ad in years.
(also on a side note, I always kinda saw Sunny D as the "I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Butter" version of orange juice. Dunno why, but...)

Speaking of which...

If there's one thing I gotta admire, it's when an ad knows how to get in your face.

Speaking of which, tell me if this sounds familiar..."HEEEEEEEY!!! YOU LOOK LIKE A REAL JERK! SO WHATCHA DOIN'?"
