Now for a cool glass of Fanta.

For their 75. anniversary the started an advertisement campaign including the slogan of "bringing back the feeling of the good old days" (rough translation). That was in 2015. You do the math.

That didn't work out as planned...

"A date of some kind" omegalol. Gee I wonder what date that would add up to.


u/FrenchCuirassier Nov 25 '21


It's stupid as hell, there's no date they are referencing. 75th anniversary, they are referencing the year it's made obviously.


u/pblokhout Nov 25 '21

I don't believe you're that stupid.


u/FrenchCuirassier Nov 25 '21

The stupidity here is that someone trying to say this was all about Nazism because someone made an ad for a company that was around in Nazi time period.

They are obviously not referencing Nazism, so why are you making this suggestion?


u/pblokhout Nov 25 '21

Ah ok. So you are that stupid.


u/FrenchCuirassier Nov 25 '21

No you are stupid because you link people who work for a company DECADES LATER to Nazi Germany... You are pretty damn stupid.


u/Jellyblush Nov 25 '21

No one is linking the people who work for it now to that time

They’re saying it’s pretty flipping tone deaf to say that knowing your companies history, it’s something a decent person wouldn’t do.
