Bulletin… bulletin… bulletin… this just in… the actor who played “Mikey” in the Life Cereal Ads did not die as result of consuming pop rocks and cola (or from any other cause). Just as not-dead is Jared Fogel, spokesman for Subway restaurants. A tooth will not dissolve when left in Coca Cola overnight. And Pepsi did not have to give a Harrier Jet to a business student who sued them over a “Pepsi Points” TV ad in the 90’s.
