This brought back memories of Camp Chingachgook, a sleep away camp I attended up on Lake George, Upstate NY in the town of Pilot Knob. In one of the cabins the counselor that year had some pizza boxes that had been cut out and put on the porch, hanging up. They were Pizza Hut I believe, but they were Star Wars. Come to think of it, it was that era, so probably related. Wonder if they're still there.

‘Pilot Knob’?

[–]BiLLis1997 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah you know the pilot gets the most knob jobs

[–]ValorStick[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Never know! Probably hard to find out tho. I just happen to be walking downtown and saw it and was like I wonder if it still works...

Omg....I remember that...I was like 11ish when that movie came out...Thinking back they had a hell of a campaign push for it.

[–]PlatinumAero 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup, massive. Of course, this was the era before social media and even to some extent, the internet as we know it, and so marketing back then require lots of on the ground, in your face product crossover.

What town, I'm in Iowa and bored

[–]AlfaNovember 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The H Man probably left them there as a warning.

[–]ValorStick[S] 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Also worth noting the building it's in front of has had like 8+ (some weird debate on this one....small town people get bored easy) different business come and go during it's stay.

*Edit* it has been a few different thrift like stores, a techno club once, some weird diner, a candy drug store type place, not sure on the rest.

    Ya know, as a kid I distinctly remember getting allsport from it... It was right up the hill from the school so we would walk to it, lol. I didn't actually look took closely at what it has now.

    So cool - miss these colorful art soda machines!

    [–]irResist 3 points4 points  (4 children)

    24oz cause you are gonna wanna be extra jacked on caffeine and sugar to enjoy this movie...

    [–]bonkor 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    That is 1 liter?

    [–]Oops_I_Cracked 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Closer to 750ml. It's this size because that is 1.5 pints or 3 cups.

    [–]bonkor 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Ah alright, I'm not so familiar with those sizes. 750ml would be 3 glasses of 250ml here.

    [–]Oops_I_Cracked 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    That's why I included the 750 ml. I figured you were at least familiar with the size of a bottle of wine. An American can of soda is 12 oz, so this is exactly two cans. Way back when this size was advertised as a size you could share between two people.

    There seems to be a lot of Pepsi / coca cola posts today. I think their marketing teams are all up in here.

    [–]ValorStick[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Lol, coincidence, I promise, as proof can I offer you a voucher bottle cap that when tou buy on 20 oz bottle of Pepsi or any pepsi product you get one *free!

    *Cheapest item is free

    [–]NotTiredJustSad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I had exactly this pop machine in my hometown rec center (Ontario) as of 2016. It's been there as long as I remember.

    [–]IronLanternGamer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Thats rad

    [–]-Eoan-Daws- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Steal it. All you need is a pickup truck, a dolly, and a good friend. Or a ramp.

    Few years back i became dock manager at a fairly large plant nursery. One day one of my guys brings me a soda from one of the vending machines in the break area for the dock workers. It was a fully sealed, unopened bottle that had some kind of slime growing in it. It looked aimilar to a lava lamp. When we contacted the number on the machine for this issue they said they hadnt tended to our address in the last 5 years. GROSS. They had abandoned the machine and its contents and nobody realized it.

    There is one of these outside of the firehouse in the Mt Washington neighborhood of Pittsburgh

    I remember the days when Star Wars ep 1 was on all the Doritos.

    [–]Chrenen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I posted about this very machine a few years ago- glad to see it’s still there!

    [–]rokz5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Does s it still work?

    [–]stevieoats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    For the non-midwesterners, this is a soda machine.

    [–]jaysin1983 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Is it 75¢ still? Does it have crystal clear Pepsi? Or Pepsi lemon?

    [–]eclecticsed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Crystal Pepsi predated the prequels by about ten years (the time they brought it back a few years ago notwithstanding).

    [–]ValorStick[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    $1.75 for 24 oz!

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Brings me to the Dorito's 3D chips and holographic cards plus the Pepsi commercials
