Dr. Pepper made an aggressively silly ad about the “Evolution of Flavor.” It shows an early-evolution man finding a can of Dr. Pepper, and BOOM, full-fledged homo sapiens. Funny! And again, willfully goofy. And then it started a culture war.

As of publication, it has been liked 25,464 times, with 3,719 comments—most of which appear to be totally insane.

Here is the advertisement:

I think the fact that creationists would be attacking an ad based off of a common evolution meme (Just Google "human evolution" and you should see similar images to this one.) is ridiculous. Dr. Pepper has nothing to do with human evolution, something I thought people with common sense knew.

Anyhow, enjoy the hilarity.

Hmm, I wonder what the repercussions on actual sales of Dr Pepper will be - I predict a "boycott" would affect a couple of hundred cans a month at most.  A few loud mouths getting too much air time is what I see here.

It's funny if you had an advertisement with Jesus in it instead you'd get people saying it was disgracing their religion. People can't take a joke these days.

Yes, why are people so closed-minded that they cannot take science lessons from a soda ad? i guess you are making a political statement every time you drink a can, or is that just the ad pitch, aimed at the demographic of people who hate creationists? Well I guess they lured you in, hook line sinker ... Ultimately though I think Dr. Pepper should stick to making soft drinks ( he's not a real doctor, he only plays one on TV ).
