OT: ZIMA sighting while watching Babylon 5


One of my favorite TV shows of all time is Babylon 5. I was watching Season One of the 5 season DVD set and in the episode called TKO and there on the wall of one of the bars that Garibaldi was frequenting with his friend, in clear colors was a ZIMA ad.

=) I just HAD to share that with y'all given the fondness for ZIMA that some of y'all have.

from the wikipedia

Zima is a clear, lightly-carbonated, alcoholic beverage, made and distributed by the Coors Brewing Company, ultimately MillerCoors. Introduced in 1993, it was marketed not as a beer, but as an alternative to beer, an early example of what is now often referred to as alcopop. Its domestic production ceased in October 2008, but it is still produced and marketed in Japan.

and also from wikipedia

 

Babylon 5 is an American science fiction television series created, produced and largely written by J. Michael Straczynski. The show centers on the Babylon 5 space station: a focal point for politics, diplomacy, and conflict during the years 2257–2262. With its prominent use of planned story arcs, the series was often described as a "novel for television".[1][2]

The pilot film premiered on February 22, 1993. The regular series aired from January 26, 1994 and ran for five full seasons. The show spawned six television films and a spin-off series, Crusade, which aired in 1999 and ran for thirteen episodes. On July 31, 2007, a DVD was released containing two short films about selected characters from the series.

 

pretty interesting that the directors chose that as one of the beers to use as advertising on the station.

cheers!

 

haha! ok the wikepedia had also heard about this

Zima is referenced as an ad in an episode of Babylon 5 as being a drink still produced (or produced again) in the year 2258 in episode "TKO." The B5 creator has stated that the placement was a joke and the show received no remuneration[2][3], though was reported at the time as a product placement.
