TANG: It Vitalizes and Terrifies

Tang Commercial

Notice how from the very beginning of this commercial, the TANG logo rushes towards you menacingly. In the wild, this behavior is known as “advertising intimidation”. Only rarely will the logo actually attack you. But it’s best, when seeing this behavior, to remain perfectly still. Usually, the logo will then back away, having, to its own satisfaction, made its point. Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to antagonize the logo during this move. As recently as 2005, a man in Kentucky was gored by a Dairy Queen logo because he didn’t follow these simple precautions.

Alas, the video has been taken down everywhere but here on Flickr.
