    It's not the first time that a coffee brand has been done as a media tie-in; years before the Energizer Bunny, there was a TV ad campaign for Salada Tea that would begin as an alleged commercial for "Krindleman's Coffee", and then the Salada pitchman would burst in and hijack the spot.I never saw the campaign – it was in the late 1950s/early 60s and not in our area – but the ad agency my mother was working at got a reel that included the spots and she told me about them.As i recall, the final one had the coffee guy in a locked room (possibly a padded cell), muttering about being safe here, anyway, and then the Salada guy came bursting through the wall…Well, anyway, people began asking stores if they carried Krindleman's Coffee (i have no idea if that's the correct spelling), and the people who made Salada (who had already proved that they could think outside the box with their spots) decided to see if there was actually a market, brought out Krindleman's Coffee, and – with no further advertising – it sold pretty good for a while…

    Pfft. Where's my Doc Manhattan Underoos?!

      What would you get when you bought them, an empty package?

        Well, the Doc Manhattan Underoos start off as an entire suit. Over time though, they realize the need for modesty is silly… and then over the course of several evenings, they dissipate into nothingness. It should be noted as well that Doc Manhattan Underoos may cause cancer… but that's just a rumor.

    Nostalgia – the fragrance. Money on the table, I'm telling you.Turns out there actually is one – I'm amazed they haven't sued WB either.
