August Isn’t An Option-SIPPITY LITE Iced Diet Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/6/2016

“Good afternoon, New York City. Your listening to the drive home show on WKOR, where the current temperature is 97 degrees. I’m Joe Morrision, so let’s get the show on the road. Lori, what’s the situations on the roads?” I asked our helicopter reporter.

“We have a ten minute back up at the Queens Midtown tunnel going into Manhattan, the east bound LIE is at a crawl due to an accident at the merge with the Cross Island Parkway, the Throggs Neck, Whitestone and GW bridges all look good. Next traffic report in 20 minutes.”

“Boy does this iced diet hot chocolate ever hit the spot,” I stated to our summer intern, Terri, who just handed me a 20-ounce container of Sippity Lite iced diet hot chocolate as a reminder to begin our 60 second commercial for Sippity Lite iced diet hot chocolate.” Hey, to all our listeners at Jones Beach today who are seeking relief from the “dog-days” of summer, if you want to enjoy a very refreshing drink, that’s low in calories, and has no caffeine, do what I'm doing now-drink a Sippity Lite Chocolate marshmallow diet hot chocolate over ice. Stay cool all summer with Sippity Lite Iced diet hot chocolate. Available in six delicious chocolate flavors-chocolate, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate raspberry, chocolate strawberry and chocolate peppermint. Remember, the heat and humidity of August is not an option.”

At the end of the commercial our producer, Larry, gave me a thumbs up signaling that the commercial went well. I raised my container of iced diet hot chocolate in his direction to acknowledge his approval as I began the lead in to our afternoon music. “Here’s Adele with her current number 8 hit on this week’s Billboard top ten, Send My Love.”

‘No sooner had we begun to play Adele’s song than Terri stated, “I’ll be back in five.”

“Where are you going?” I asked.

“To the kitchen to make a Sippity Lite chocolate marshmallow iced diet hot chocolate. Your Sippity Lite commercial made me thirsty.”
