Year: 1998

Recognizing hip-hop's much-needed sense of coast unity in the wake of Tupac's and Biggie's murders, Sprite brought together representatives from the four main hip-hop regions in one of their more popular commercials. Like the other Sprite campaigns, it plays off nostalgia too—harking back to '80s cartoon favorite Voltron and bringing in none other than the mighty Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa to play the head in their cross-continental robot.
