The official drink of the Washington Redskins … and Dave & Buster's? College Humor created this fake ad a little while back for Diet Racism—the drink that has all the sweet ignorance of regular racism but with none of the guilt or self-awareness.

Vitaminwater has found the perfect types of people to associate with its brand: annoying subway braggarts and jerks who deface art. Ok, that’s perhaps an exaggeration. But the brand has hooked up with CollegeHumor on a clever series of prank video that make innocent bystanders think they’re dealing with some real-life weirdos. These branded entertainment clips are all part of the Vitaminwater campaign #makeboringbrilliant.
