The secret identity to Kool-Aid Man revealed! He's actually a pitcher of Sangria

Hey, that's not actually Kool-Aid in the Kool-Aid Man's pitcher. That's actually sangria. Yum!

It probably WAS Sangria back in the day, but ever since they put shorts on the Kool-Aid Man, I'm sure the contents of his pitcher have been replaced with the real deal kiddy mocktail Kool-Aid. Le sigh

I didn't even realize he had pants now. Sheesh.

Does his leg placement seem odd to anyone else? He looks like he's part arachnid. Just missing some limbs.

There is a commercial currently airing where Kool-Aid is log-rolling with a 2 litre bottle of Cola while a fishing father and son look on in disbelief. Their expressions are priceless, but it's Kool-Aid Man in cargo shorts that has me looking on in disbelief everytime I see it. I mean, I know the U.S. was founded by puritans, but putting pants on Kool-Aid Man is just ridiculous. He is definitely out of proportion in clothes.

The google image results show Kool-Aid Man wearing JEAN shorts. Whoa. Kool-Aid Man needs to be updated in his style choices. Although I do have to admit, I don't mind him wearing shorts. It gives Kool-Aid Man a bit more of a summery seasonal feel.

I think I've seen it... I don't recall the shorts though.
I did a google image search, and it is extra ridiculous.

He has worn jean shorts and cargo shorts and even short sleeve shirts! He is a fashion victim to be sure! Maybe putting him in clothes prevents him from crashing through walls; afterall, if he did, he'd ruin those horrible clothes. What's next Kool Aid Man? Sandles with socks?

Posted by: Tom on Apr 27, 10 | 8:55 am

I'd love to see Kool-Aid man wearing sandles with socks. I'm all for sandles with socks. It's comfy. I want Kool-Aid Man to be comfy. Now I hope Kool-Aid Man wouldn't wear a white shirt showing underneath a button dress shirt. Funny how I would not like that, which is comfy. Yet I'm for socks with sandles cuz that's comfy.

Now how can a glass pitcher break through a brick wall in the first place?--with or without clothes? Wouldn't the glass break? You know what would break through a brick wall? A radiator! If you drop one down from the second floor onto the alley, it will cause a major crater in the alley that will have to be repaired for around $500.

Perhaps he's made of Pyrex.

Why do you know how much repairing an alley damaged by a radiator dropped from the 2nd floor would cost? :P

Posted by: Tom on Apr 27, 10 | 10:25 am

Tom... you didn't try this as a kid? I thought EVERYONE did this!

Posted by: sparx on Apr 27, 10 | 10:31 am

I didn't grow up with radiators or alleys, so no, I didn't have those experiences

Shocking, I know ... but at least the Kool-Aid was really sangria :P

Posted by: Tom on Apr 27, 10 | 11:09 am

I didn't know what Sangria was. I had to google it.

It is a light, dry, young, acidic, unoaked, fruit forward red wine, usually from the province of Rioja in Spain and of the Tempranillo or Grenache varieties; other reds that work well include French wines such as Gamay or Beaujolais, and Italian wines such as Grignolino, Bardolino, Dolcetto, Freisa, or Lambrusco.

Yes moose, basically sangria is wine with fruit.

Thanks tom! The ivory sangria looks really easy to make!

Posted by: spudart on Apr 28, 10 | 1:34 pm

LOL! I didn't know he had a secret identity. Nice..
