This Should Infuriate a Few Friends

Aw man, the Slim Fast® guy died! I guess he was also some sort of baseball fan. RIP (formerly) big guy.

It was a tough call between featuring the above video and this particular gem which plays itself out with the appropriately morbid line: “Who says you can’t take it with you?” I love that some coked-out marketing exec in the 90’s decided it was a good idea to reappropriate a popular idiom about death for the purposes of selling canned (on-the-go) diet drinks. I couldn’t resist the top video though. Tommy is dressed like a member of the Buena Vista Social Club on a Carribean cruise, and the product somehow looks even more disgusting than original Slim-Fast®. I had forgotten about the terrible Jamaican rasta theme song until it got stuck in my head all over again. Now hopefully it is stuck in yours, because who wants to suffer in solitude?
