Whoa, is it the year 2000 all over again? You could be forgiven for thinking that, what with all the talk of a Clinton Whitehouse, the kids using those “cell phones” everywhere, and another Mountain Dew Super Bowl commercial on the way.

That’s right, for the first time since the year 2000, Mountain Dew is going to run a Super Bowl commercial during the next Big Game. 2016’s Mountain Dew Super Bowl ad will actually be featuring their spinoff energy drink Kickstart, but we’re going to bet the ad will feature the standard youthful, gonzo attitude with which the brand has long been associated.

That attitude was certainly on display back in the year Y2K when the soda brand ran this “Bad Cheetah” ad:

(Yeah, don’t try that.) They also aired this “Bohemian Rhapsody” themed commercial during that same game, which was Super Bowl XXXIV, FYI:


What will have changed about Mountain Dew advertising in the past 15 years? We’ll have to wait until February 7th 2016 to see!
