Supermarket siesta

I caught some gals taking a snooze on the remnants of a World Cup promotion area in the corner of my local grocery store. This particular siesta occurred at around one in the afternoon, mind you. Maybe the previous night they had one too many Chivas and green teas. And don't we all know how that can feel.

Some other observations:
  • In the center of the poster behind the muchachas calientes are some famous World Cup soccer players. I really have to plead ignorance here. I wouldn't know most of them from Adam. Apparently the one in the middle is named Ronaldinho. Has anyone not seen this guy's picture and immediately thought of Jar Jar Binks?
  • The promotional poster is from Pepsi (百事). Chinese Pepsi is way more gross even than American Pepsi. It's very sugary and has a nasty aftertaste. Give it a try sometime. In a pinch, you can use it like ipecac syrup when your toddler eats lead paint chips.
  • I can't figure out why Pepsi called their World Cup promotion "DADA". As far as I knew, Dada is a brand of hip-hop inspired footwear, which unfortunately I can't find anywhere. Did they go out of business or what? The shoes are supposedly very comfortable and well-made.

aiya... similar comments made by non-american that have tried cherry coke... why don't you guys (those who like to judge food/beverage based on their own cultural preferences, american and non-american) give each other a break? :)

I think this is more about bashing the sickly sweet taste of Pepsi, rather than bashing American and non-American tastes.
