    I don’t know what pruno is/was, but I like the sound of it!

    Was it as good as the Thirst Mutilator?

    • It made you feel more thirsty, like you’d just consumed a pound of pistachio nuts marinaded in battery acid and blended with salty hobo piss.

        I remember it too, I actually quite liked it. But I bow to your superior knowledge of ‘salty hobo piss’.

        The video doesn’t adequately demonstrate just how alarmingly green it was, a colour I’ve only seen again in cheap absinthe.

  3. I didn’t even watch the video but I remember saying “Qua-Qua-Qua-Quatro!!” in the playground

    Great packaging design too.

  5. Quite a landmark ad. IIRC was mentioned quite a bit in Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel’s “Creative Computer Graphics” [1985]. Morton and Jankel, who produced notable pop videos including Donald Fagen’s New Frontier and Elvis Costello’s Accidents Will Happen, are best known for creating Max Headroom.

  7. how wonderfully over the top, we may live in the future, but the golden age has passed us.

    Wow. I remember this too. Much better than Tab Clear, released around the same time.
