Love means not having to share your soda

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s this amusing old Dr Pepper ad from Young & Rubicam in which the guy will buy tampons for his lady, he’ll wash her underwear, he’ll practice yoga with her, but he has to draw the line somewhere. The ad is also noteworthy for its use of Meat Loaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” a song that confuses and frustrates some people, who believe (wrongly, it seems) that Loaf never reveals in the song exactly what it is he won’t do. Here, at least, the lyrics make obvious sense.
