Tastes Like Freedom

I’ve been living in Japan for almost a year now, but luckily I have a fail proof method to keep homesickness at bay. Whenever I’m feeling nostalgic for the good ol’ U.S. of A., all I have to do is gaze at a can of American Coffee and it’s like I’m home again:

It’s amazing that Japanese beverage manufacturer Dydo was able to capture the spirit of America in one simple image. The America portrayed on a can of American Coffee is the real America.*

I get a little teary-eyed just looking at it. Oh, say can you see… (*Sniff, sniff*)…

*The “real America” being of course theĀ America of 1970s sexploitation movies.

    I always enjoy a cup of good old American coffee in my nightgown on top of a classic car.

  • Lars Martinson

    The only way it could have been better was if she had been shooting a shootgun into the air or something. Maybe when they redesign it someday.

  • They actually have this one in America! I’ve bought it at the Asian grocery store a few times.
