I hadn’t seen this Diet Dr. Pepper commercial before, but I’ll bet you can guess what I was thinking the entire time…
No… what were you thinking?
That the Flying Spaghetti Monster isn’t there because everyone knows He is real.
Definitely anti christian and anti christmas.
I laughed the first time I saw this commercial, and it still makes me chuckle.
I was thinking, “Wait, where’s Jesus?”
I always think, “Where’s Jesus?”
That’s cute! Although there are lots of members who aren’t there…Adonai, Adonis, Ahura Mazda, Allah, Amon, Anubis, Aphrodite, Apollo, Astarte, Atlas, Azarial, Baal, Baast, Bacchus, Baldir, Bangputtis, Beelzebub, Belial, Bellona, Bendis, Brahma, Bran, Ceres, Cupid, Dagon, Demeter, Diana, Dionysus, Eris, the Father, Freia, Fricka, Gaia, Ganesh, Hanuman, Hekate, Hephaestus, Hera, Hercules, the Holy Ghost, Horus, Imhotep, Inanna, Indra, Ishtar, Isis, Janus, Jeebo, Jesus, Juno, Jupiter, Kali, Krishna, Kwan Yin, Lakshmi, Loge, Ma’at, Manannan mac Lir, Mars, Mercury, Merodak, Minerva, Nana Buluku, Nanook, Neptune, Nut, Occupim, Odin, Ogma, Osiris, Pan, Parvati, Persephone, Pluto, Pomona, Poseidon, Potrimpos, Priapus, Ptah, Quetzalcoatl, Ra, Rama, Saraswati, Saturn, Set, Shiva, Sophia, Tangaroa, Thanatos, Thor, Thoth, Uranus, Venus, Vesta, Vishnu, Waaq, Wotan, Xochiquetzal, Yahweh and Zeus, to name a few.
What would happen if they did put Jesus or a god in there?
Isn’t that backwards, if you put God there then that would be saying ‘I exist’. That’s the joke.
I think I know what you were thinking! They forgot to include the Republican atheist.

I believe in ‘a good diet soda’ about as much as I believe in the other things… seeing them all together only reinforced that.
‘course, I don’t like regular soda either. Ymmv.
I’ll bet you can guess what I was thinking the entire time…
That good diet sodas don’t exist?
I’m definitely an agooddietsodaist, and I don’t mind saying it.
I hope that commercial doesn’t burst any bubbles for the 8 and under crowd who still believe in Santa!
Reminds me of a joke.
Q. If you were in a race with Jesus, Santa, and the Easter Bunny, who would win?
A. You. The others aren’t real.
That meeting must have taken place in Imaginationland (thank you Southpark.)
i don’t believe in diet dr. pepper.
The first time I saw that commercial I wondered why god wasn’t included.
Goodness knows that Diet Dr. Pepper definitely isn’t a good, or even drinkable, diet soda. I understood why ‘it’ was there. A good diet soda doesn’t exist.
I made sure to clarify to my small children why they left the magic sky daddy out.
Leia, I beg to differ. I do believe in Diet Dr. Pepper! I do! Meaning, I love it and it’s everything it claims to be — unlike some others.
Of course, Dr. Pepper had me back in the ’70’s with their be an original commercials good, ole Barry Manilow wrote.Very Strange Medley Dr. P is at the 2:10 mark but give the whole thing a listen. If you’re a baby boomer you probably already know how Barry Manilow got his start but it’s a great trip down memory lane and I love this one’s video.
Yeah, subtle. I love this commercial. Of course, they had to leave out “God” but that only somehow points up the obvious even more and doesn’t leave the Christian nutters a leg to stand on — though I’m surprised that stops them.
I believe that Mr. Pibb kicked Dr. Pepper’s ass.
