This Sprite commercial is kind of amazing. It combines old-time mythical story telling with a little bit of snark on the end. No, sorry, old timer, I'm not gonna save my Sprite and invest in a Sprite bottling company until I'm a millionaire. I'm just gonna drink the damn thing. Who cares if it grew on a mythical tree? Honestly if you think about it, if Sprite grew on mythical trees like that, all you'd really have to do if you found your ambition, is come back when another one has grown. And then, my friend, you could make that Sprite dream a reality. Also the subtext here is, don't give in to avarice and materialism. Who knew a soda has so much depth to it? Boy, Sprite has really come a long ways since the days of "limon," as in made with lemon and lime.
Anyway where was I? Oh yeah. The Perlorian brothers are one of my favorites because they always have such a unique and slightly skewed sensibility about their work. I must say this might be the most straight forward thing I they've done in a while. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you. Not at all.
Also, can I just say, who doesn't appreciate a great wet burp sound effect?
