Video Game Ad of the Day: Fido Dido

Fido Dido
Contrary to popular belief, Fido Dido isn’t actually a creation of PepsiCo – he was created by two New York animators, who sold t-shirts of the character they printed himself. PepsiCo then licensed the mascot to hock their drinks before replacing him with Cool Spot. The Fido Dido video game was scheduled to be released in 1993, but never made to market. A prototype ROM is in wide circulation.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill

Not the type of pussy we tend to associate with the Clinton administration.
