Pick Yer Poison
Even though it's late, at an intersection you see a man sitting on a folding chair under a streetlight. He's got a card table set up in front of him, stacked high with two different types of cans.
"Excuse me," he says as you approach, "but would you be interested in trying a free sample?" You slow down to look at the odd setup, and the man takes this as an invitation to continue.
"We've got two different drinks to choose from. Your first option is the brand-new Gingerette Black, the hip new ginger cola that good-looking teens all across the country are drinking in massive quantities. If you want to be cool, you'll love Gingerette Black. Gingerette Black: It's got snap!"
