Quatro – the fizzy drink with the futurepunk advert! (1984)

It (Quatro) was a fizzy drink that was around for a few years in the Eighties and tasted like a more chemically treated Lilt. Imagine that. The most memorable thing about the product was the faintly cyberpunk adverts with some jerky video trickery. Despite the post-industrial / slightly post-apocalyptic setting, it is good to know they still have vending machines around then. There is also a faintly ‘Tron’ vibe with the light streams hitting the fruit. The guy looks like he has come off the set of ‘Wild Boys‘. For some reason I remembered him hitting the vending machine harder than what he does hit it.
