    Sure its patronizing to men, but the male consumer is used to this form of advertising. *Cough*Budweiser-MAN UP!*cough* If they really felt offended, they wouldn`t buy this stupid crap.

    Frankly, I`m offended that a woman posted this because clearly, as mentioned in the advertisement, "it`s not for women."

    I`m more annoyed by the list of where, why, and how it`s bad, as if it were trying to be serious.
    Excluding that, it is a little lame, seems like it`s trying to be the old spice commercial, especially with the random `Catchprase!`

    I would also add that of all of the diet sodas I`ve tried, I remember Diet Dr. Pepper as being the one that tastest most like the regular soda. I`ve often wished that soda companies would make "light" versions of their sodas that was exactly the same formula, but with 1/2 or 1/4 of the sugar content. No added artificial sweetners, just less syrupy sweet versions with fewer calories.

    "When`s the last time a diet soda was marketed to men?"

    This, I think illuminates a hidden drive in this commercial. Why indeed would dudes worry about a few extra calories in their drinks? They wouldn`t. Not really. That`s too much of a chick thing actually. Until now.

    Congrats menfolk, you have now unwittingly joined your female counterparts in the great Body Image Wars.}-)

    "There are 23 flavors of Dr. Pepper?"

    allegedly there are 23 flavouring ingredients IN dr. pepper... though a remarkable facsimile (not to mention lovely way to get faced) can be created with a double shot of sloe gin (or sloe vodka) and amaretto a bit of simple sugar, a little cinnamon syrup and fizzy water.
    i count five ingredients. then i fall over.

    Wait, i think people are misunderstanding the add campaign. They`re not trying to be chauvinistic at all - it`s a warnings. They`ve been using thalidomide as one of the new ingrediants and they don`t want any women to give birth to deformed kids.

    This is just like Coke Zero. It`s the exact same thing as Diet Coke, but some men think that buying a diet drink makes them less of a man, so coke re-labeled it. The only difference between that and this is Dr. Pepper isn`t even trying to hide it. I vote for stupid.

    I am manly. I want to dink this beverage. However, in order to be manly, you must 1. Simplyfy basic arguements for women and gender nuetral hipsters. 2. Stereotype. 3. Hate women drivers. 4. Love a sport more than a step child. 5. Keep a whet stone in your first aide kit. 6. Know the difference between a lager and ale. 7. Be able to multiply anything times 1,000 or 1,000,000. 8. Have a desire to complete 10 manly one handed push-ups. 9. Disagree with with a critique that argues against noone. 10. Love Texas, despite it`s obviously political shortcomings.

    I don`t get the deal with it being "just for men"

    We`ve had several products advertise for specific genders. As already posted the Yorkie bar advertised that it was not for girls. diet coke ads over here (uk) advertise that it makes guys hot, so women drink it, Old spice makes girls hot, so guys buy it. on and on.

    An advert either makes you think and go Hmm! or go out and buy it, both of those do it for me as a girl, and it`d not stop me from buying it.

    I found it amusing in a very lame way, which is what it should be taken as. "Calm down dear, It`s only a commercial!"

    Then they have won. They already know more women will drink it, just because of the fact that it has the low calorie count. If some dude was actually dumb enough to go out and buy this product over this very commercial, you have to know that his wife will drink it all.
