Kool-Aid Man was both ingenius and incredibly creepy. We remember him to this day, but we're never quite sure if it would be a good or a bad thing to have the giant pitcher with elephant stumps for legs come running to provide beverages for your childhood sweaty activities.
Let's roll some tape.
Kool-Aid Man visits "Family Guy"
It was Kevin's nickname on "The Office"
Possibly the weirdest commerial of the '80s, which is really saying something
This is more along the lines of the ads I remember.
Kool-Aid Man also was an Atari and Intellivision game. Reportedly voted the stupidest game of 1983.
There are some kind of creepy parodies of the ads.
But maybe we should be thankful -- before the Kool-Aid Man could walk, he was just a stupid pitcher with a face that talked to some very white 1950s kids who had no sense of musical pitch.
What's your memory of Kool-Aid Man -- cute or creepy? Did you drink the stuff?
