Dr peppers new advert based on the evolution diagram the march of progress has had some surprising repercussions.
The ad – which features an ape which, after drinking Dr. Pepper, turns into a man – appeared on the soft drink’s official Facebook page Thursday afternoon, and it had generated 28,500 likes and more than 5,200 comments, some of which vow to boycott the drink, by Saturday morning.
“Humans did not evolve from Chimps, but do share a common ancestor… So, actually this ad is NOT scientific…,” commented John Haydon. “I love Dr. Pepper but hate this photo,” wrote Kara Duran, “Forget evolution… Jesus all the way!”
Pro Evolution supporters responded by stating they would continue to drink Dr Pepper even if the company revealed they had pissed in the formula.
