This Limited Edition Sprite from China is based on a viral meme, however, it features a slightly different recipe. Featuring a collectible bottle, the 1982 Sprite is quite refreshing!
The meme originated from a 2014 Chinese New Year TV Gala comedy sketch in which Sprite was compared to a $25,000 bottle of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild red wine as a more affordable alternative to relax in style. Quickly achieving viral status, the meme with the message “let me have an 1982 Sprite to chill out” continues to be used on social media by millions of Gen Z and Millennials in reaction to everyday heated moments. Sprite leaned into this viral meme with a limited edition bottle.
