Modern Warfare 2: Bud Light
C'mon, EVERYONE's drinking it! The nerds who want to pretend they're cool, the jocks who are actually cool, the social recluse who mistakes it for apple juice. It's the universal party starter!

No thanks guys! I think I'll play it safe, because alcohol is bad for you and if I drink it my mom will know and ground me. No seriously guys, it's fine! I mean, I'm having fun! Look at all these fancy colors on the glass! I'm so cool!
