Having just finished a bottle of Ribena, I noticed the words Lucozade Ribena Suntory Ltd. on the packaging. ‘Suntory? Aren’t they the Japanese whiskey brand?‘ I thought. A quick Google and, yes, it was the same Suntory and both Lucozade and Ribena were their brands (as well as Orangina). Now, I’m trying to imagine the above commercial, starring Sammy Davis Jr., but he’s ad-libbing with a bottle of Ribena.
