St George does the Blackcurrant Tango

Blackcurrant Tango is a carbonated soft drink launched in the UK by Britvic Soft Drinks Ltd in 1996. Blackcurrant Tango was relaunched in 2011 as an exclusive flavour to Asda in the UK.

St George is a multi award winning commercial for the British soft drink, Tango Blackcurrant. The advert only appeared on national television ten times, mostly during the show TFI Friday. It won several major advertising awards in 1998, notably a Cannes Gold Lion and a Silver Pencil from D&AD in London. It has been voted one of the 100 best commercials of all time and was popular for its latent jingoism and the fact that it appears to have been filmed in one continuous shot.

Blackcurrant is a species of Ribes berry native to central and northern Europe and northern Asia, and is a perennial. Blackcurrant berries have a distinctive sweet and sharp taste popular in jam, juice, ice cream, and liqueur.

Isn’t the IBM Thinkpad 701c Incredible?

The TrackWrite, also known as the butterfly keyboard, is a foldout laptop computer keyboard designed by John Karidis for IBM as part of the ThinkPad 701 series, released in 1995. It allowed the 701 series to be both compact (when closed) and comfortable to use (when open), despite being just 24.6 cm (9.7 in) wide with a 26.4 cm (10.4 in) VGA LCD. The 701 was the top selling laptop of 1995, however, as later laptop models featured progressively larger screens, the need for a folding keyboard was eliminated. Consequently, no model but the 701 used the butterfly keyboard.

ThinkPad is a brand of laptop computers originally designed, manufactured and sold by IBM that are known for their boxy black design, which was originally modeled after a traditional Japanese lunchbox. Since early 2005, the ThinkPad range has been manufactured and marketed by Lenovo, who purchased the IBM personal computer division.

You Know When You’ve Been Tango’d

Tango is a carbonated soft drink sold primarily in the United Kingdom and Ireland, first launched by Corona in 1950. The first “ironic” campaign introduced the now-common catchphrase “You know when you’ve been Tango’d”, produced by advertising agency HHCL. The campaign began in 1991 with an ad featuring a man being slapped around the face by a portly man painted orange (Peter Geeves) immediately after drinking Tango. It received widespread condemnation after a craze for “Tangoing” people swept the nation’s playgrounds, and there were reports of children receiving serious injuries or even being deafened by being slapped on the ears.

HHCL (formally Howell Henry Chaldecott Lury and Partners) was a London based advertising agency prominent in the 1990s. HHCL’s most celebrated piece of work was a commercial for Tango in 1991 (co-written by Trevor Robinson OBE). The ad took soft drinks advertising away from US lifestyle and planted it firmly on the streets of Britain. When a young man drinks some Tango, a large orange man runs up to him and slaps him on the face – the ‘hit of real oranges’ – while two astounded commentators report on the action. The commercial was voted the third best commercial of all time by Channel 4 in the UK. After children began copying the orange man’s slap, the commercial was banned and reshot with the orange man planting a kiss on the Tango drinker.

The exact origin of rhyming slang is unclear, partly because it exists to some extent in many languages. In English, rhyming slang is strongly associated with Cockney speech from the East End of London.

American Express executives discussed the possibility of launching a travel charge card as early as 1946, but it was not until Diners Club launched their card in March 1950 that American Express began to seriously consider the possibility.
