Soft drink companies are selling products every bit as toxic as cigarettes, and they are pouring tons of money into "research" designed obscure the public's understanding of the health effects of consuming drinks like Electric Apple. While I'm no fan of 4Chan, I can't help but grin a little about some comeuppance for Pepsico.

I also wonder if we would pity Phillip-Morris if this had happened there, or if we would lament being "unable to have nice things" if one of their promotions were trolled.

I write about movies, books, culture, politics, and the intersection between them. MA in English, words in The Ascent, PSILU, The Writing Cooperative, and more.
