An Short Interview With The Kool Aid Man

An Introduction.
Kool-Aid Man is the mascot for Kool-Aid, a popular drink. The character has appeared on television and print advertising as a fun-loving and jolly beverage provider, appearing to children everywhere sharing his Kool-Aid beverage, and yelling "Oh yeah!". He is a gigantic anthropomorphic pitcher, filled with Tropical Punch Kool-Aid and marked with a fingerpainted smiley face. In 2005, the Kool-Aid Man celebrated his 30th birthday.

Me: Let me just start off by saying that I love your work, Mr. Kool Aid Man.

Kool Aid Man: Please, please. Just Kool Aid.

Me: Oh. Sure. Kool Aid. I love your work, Kool Aid.

Kool Aid Man: Thank you.

Me: What would you be if you weren’t a pitcher of Kool Aid, Kool Aid?

Kool Aid Man: I don't know. Milk.

Me: Yeah?

Kool Aid Man: Oh yeah.

Me: Thank you.

A Postscipt.

In 2000, a new series of commercials were created for Kool-Aid Fierce and the actor chosen to play Kool-Aid Man was Jon Carr. Kool-Aid Man's punchline was when he jumped through the wall while everyone was saying "Oh no!!". Then he comes in and says "OH YEEEEEEAH!".

A year on...

I just decided I'm sick of this blog not hitting the 1000 post mark. I'm going to email Shane and get the gang back together for 40 more blogposts. Then, and only then, will I be able to re-close the book on this chapter of my online life.
