It’s cute and very scientifically inaccurate
But unlike some of the other recent clever ads aiming to make a political point, Dr Pepper’s promoters were clearly just having some fun.
Nearly two thousand comments later, you would think this has become the next battle in the culture wars: Are you for or against Dr Pepper? (Even more entertaining: Chick-fil-A sells the drink. CONTROVERSY!)
Still, that won’t stop everyone else from having some fun at their expense. As one Redditor noted, “The day your faith is shaken by a Dr. Pepper ad is the day you should probably start reconsidering your faith.”
And there’s also this brilliant retort: “If Dr Pepper evolved then why does Mr. Pibb still exist?”
