(click ad for closer look)
Fanta strawberry soda—the perfect beverage to wash down a tongue sandwich or a Subway human entrails sub or McDonald's finger food. Disgusting print ad out of Russia or some eastern European country (look at the language on the can, maybe you can tell me. update: Rob says it's Portuguese. Why yes, I am a xenophobe.). Really makes you wanta Fanta, yes? Cheeky art directors of the world? Please stop turning human body parts into edibles. It's horribly unappetizing. Ditto for reanimating farm animal carcasses.

"Morango" is Portuguese. it means "strawberry" which may not be a huge surprise. Portugual is not in Eastern, but in Southern Europe, west of Spain. It may also be a Brazilian ad.

what's up with advertisers' obsession for women's lips? (like the posters for Jennifer's Body and a new TV show about vampires, I can't remember the title right now)

Deaf Brown - woman's lips, especially bright red painted ones, have been spelling (or should I say 'mouthing') FELLATIO since the dawn of advertising.
Never search for meanings deeper than a hair's breadth under the surface when it comes to advertising.

That strawberry looks delicious! I be it would taste divine if it were real. And, you know, if it weren't coming out of someone's mouth.

Yeah. Pretty sure that’s the closest to real fruit that a can of Fanta will ever get.

lol... the „some other Eastern European country” remark is fuckin cool! Just shows no matter how high in the social food chain or educated a person should be, typical American ignorace is omnipresent. And then some of you people ask yourselves why are other people (from other countries - that have names) think Americans are stupid and full of shit.

All that political correctness bullshit, all the „Hail democracy!”... I'm sorry, but this attitude is just disappointing. :) It's sad that you think like that. But hey - why am I disturbing your ranting here? Go get them, tiger! All the fuckin Charlies, and Russians and Africans and whatever shitty nations live out there. Right? :)

I said Russian or eastern European because I found the ad at a Russian language ad site, but point taken, international ranter.
