There’s an old urban legend that Fanta originates as “Nazi Coke,” which isn’t true actually, because as you can see, Coke was Nazi Coke. Those posters behind Max in the first frame are both closely drawn from actual promotional materials.

Now we have Coke as sponsor of the Sochi Olympics, of course, in which their role is not only to help fund the oppression and abuse of LGBT people, but to provide cover to the Russian government.

I have to wonder, though, who’s bright idea it was to put the sponsor’s logo on the security guard uniforms.

Unrelated: I had to explain to my girlfriend who Max Headroom was, which turns out to be pretty challenging. I guess you had to be there.

Abandon all hope, ye who read the comments
