VIDEO: The Return of the Fantanas

Fanta-stic news, everyone!

After an extended absence, the Fantanas—those singing, bouncing, brightly-clothed figureheads of soft drink Fanta—are poised to re-take their rightful place in the pop-culture pantheon.

Just in time, too; as the above video indicates, the break-up of Capri, Lola, Sophia and Kiki left a crater-sized hole in the hearts of their legions of fans.

Luckily, their long national nightmare will soon be over, and Summer 2009 will forever be known in the history books as the Summer of the Fantanas.

Details are still developing, but visit Fanta’s new Web site,, for further developments.
