Thanks for ruining Spartacus!

Congratulations to Pepsi for ruining my favorite sword-and-sandals epic. In case you’ve missed their new ad, Pepsi alters the “I am Spartacus” scene. Sure, the original scene is a little campy, but at least the original is about how everyone loves and wants to protect their revolutionary reader—a slightly better message than “I love Pepsi so much that I’ll lie to get some.” Come on! It’s poo-colored sugar water!
