Dr Pepper + Teen Sex = OMG!

I was suffering through last night’s episode of “90120” when I saw this odd, glowing Dr Pepper logo prominently placed in a dramatic scene. (Since all scenes in “90210” are dramatic, forgive me for being unspecific.) My question: if the folks at Plano-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group are going after the “Frazier” crowd, can they really also go after the lusty types (myself excluded) who watch “90120”? For the record, I was watching “90120” because my wife watches the show. That’s a whole ‘nother blog entry in itself.

    I think more of the “lusty types” watch 90210. It’s probably a bad strategy to spend ad dollars on 90120 – Hollywood gossip has it canceled by March.

    Perhaps Dr. Pepper should consider offering their tasty beverage in more places outside of Texas before they start a national ad campaign!

    I like how all of the tweener / young adult oriented shows have actors (supposedly in High School) sipping cocktails at bars. When I was younger, I had trouble getting into bars and nightclubs, much less ordering a Johnny Walker and soda.

    I hung out with the kids who got high and drank Dad’s Natural Light or Keystone out at the lake. Where is that TV show???

    Mmmm, Lori Laughlin…

    Actually, Dr. Pepper states their core demographic is men aged 18-34, so yes, they can target the “lusty” types. IJS.

    Dude, get another TV. My wife and I diverged on TV show preference during the first year of American Idol. Save the co-watching for NCIS and movies.

    Good point about that second TV, except I fear I would never see my wife again (she has an aversion to the “Wings of the Luftwaffe” shows I tape).
