GALLERY 37: Best of the US - Mountain Dew

Refreshing comedy on the American marketplace in a spot that mixes the nature of National Geographic with the twisted satire of National Lampoon. A man kayaks out into the beautiful expanse of the ocean to enjoy the thirst-quenching effervescence of Mountain Dew. Suddenly an enormous whale dives out of the depths to swallow the straddling paddler. The Ahab doppelganger lights a flare to reveal a shocking sight.
