Rise from the grave with Pepsi!

In the early 1970’s, Pepsi-Cola introduced a new catch phrase to promote its product: “Come Alive!”
Sounds good in English, but the problems “arose” (pun intended) when Pepsi took the campaign slogan overseas. In Germany the phrase meant, “Rise from the grave with Pepsi!” – In China the phrase meant, “Pepsi brings back your ancestors!”
It’s common knowledge cola can erode a penny, but who would have thought it had supernatural powers as well!
