Mountain Dew 0 Internet 1


Mountain Dew'€™s "€˜Dub the Dew"€™ Online Poll Goes Horribly Wrong "Hitler did nothing wrong,"€ "Diabeetus,"€ and "Gushing Granny"€ all topped the online rankings to name the new drink,

In addition to simply bombarding the poll with hilariously unusable names, the pranksters even went so far as to hack into the site, adding a banner that read "Mtn Dew salutes the Israeli Mossad for demolishing 3 towers on 9/11!"€
