Orangina is a French orange soda. It’s available in the United States, but you have to look hard to find it. Its claim to fame is that it uses real orange juice, with real orange pulp. During our visit to France, it was the subject of a bizarre and inscrutable advertising campaign.

I mean… really? We’ve all heard the old adage that “sex sells.” And obviously, cute animals sell too. But should you really be combining these two concepts?

The French are just weird.
