Whoomp There It Is: Crystal Pepsi is Coming Back!

OH MY GOD! I can’t even….words not coming…too excited! Okay, okay. I’m better now {clears throat}, apparently Crystal Pepsi will be hitting the shelves this July and HOLY SHIT I AM SO GODDAMN EXCITED! Fuck it, I can’t type, I’m too busy giving high fives to people in the coffee shop where I’m writing this post. They have NO idea what’s going on as I am inaudibly saying “The Pepsi….It’s Crystal again. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” And now I’m being asked to leave by some very kind police officers. Just watch the video below for more. Crystal Pepsi!

Everything Back to the Future II Predicted

Happy Back to the Future day! That’s right, today October 21st, 2015 is the day Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future II. While many of the predictions made by the movie were clearly meant to be funny and whimsical, it’s still fun to look back to see what Robert Zemekis and the film actually were successful in predicting. So, let us all take a look at the past to see how our present was predicted when it was still long in the future. Still with me? Okay, cool. Hoverboards There is much debate on whether or not hoverboards officially exist. But there shouldn’t be because they do! Check it out. The real question is, would they have existed by 2015 (or at all for that matter) if not for the movie Back to the Future?…Mind Blown.   Nike Self Lacing Shoes This “prediction” came true with the help of Nike designing and releasing the shoes to honor the film this year.   Pepsi Perfect Much like the Nike Self Lacing Shoes, Pepsi …

Pepsi Perfect from ‘Back to the Future Part II’ Available For Limited Time

Happy Back to the Future week! we’ve been waiting 30 years (well, really 26 years) to see what predictions Back to the Future got right…but that will all be in another post later this week. For now we celebrate Pepsi for releasing the version of Pepsi they drink in the movie’s depiction of 2015. That’s right! For a limited time only, on a website that hasn’t even been announced (maybe this isn’t really happening…) Pepsi will be selling Pepsi Perfect starting October 21st for $20.15 (very clever Pepsi) for a limited time only. Apparently only 6,500 bottles will be produced so paying over $20 a bottle may not be a terrible investment considering how valuable pop cans seem to get over time.  No word on if Pizza Hut has mastered the technology for dehydrated pizza yet, but if I can order pizza from Domino’s with an emoji, anything is possible. Now enjoy this commercial for Pepsi Perfect.

Why did I recycle!!!: Old Pop Cans Worth Big $$$

While the picture above is not the actual can I own, I do still have in my possession a 1992 Toronto Blue Jays Word Series Coke Can. Little did I know back in the day how valuable pop (or soda) cans could be in the future. The unopened cans are particularly valuable (especially if it is factory error), but like trying to keep an action figure in it’s original packaging, who can resist downing 24 cans of Pepsi in one sitting? It’s basically impossible. Had I resisted over the years, I could have made on mint on eBay selling these cans apparently. I mean think how much more Dr. Pepper I could have bought with $25,000! So, as dumb as it sounds, save your Twilight (or whatever terrible movie is on Coke cans these days) and World Cup 2014 Cans (unopened) because they could be worth something some day….and if they’re not? Hey, at least you’ll have 20 year old Coke to drink. It’s Win/Win!   Unopened Empty Coke Can (Factory Error): $25,000 Apparently there …

Red, White and Blue Rubber Ball

All of us played with these balls as kids, whether it was in gym class, at a neighbor’s house or maybe even at a babysitters.  My question: Where the hell did these things come from and why did they exist? I mean someone created these things and apparently did very well in selling them because I don’t know a person who didn’t play with one of these things as a kid. Yet, no one can tell me where they came from! Not even Google knows what the hell these things were! If you Google ‘red, white and blue balls’ the answer you get from Google is “Is the condition Chuck Norris gets instead of blue balls”. Oh yeah, check yourself. As far as I am concerned this might as well be an object brought to this world by alien lifeforms or the illuminati because it seems to shrouded in secrecy. The only other theory I have is that maybe it was created by Pepsi, as it seems to have a similar look to Pepsi’s logo: …
