Interrogating taste.

Fanta: “What The Fanta” - 68s

Fans of true crime and investigative documentaries have been inundated with fresh content of late, from Netflix's deep dives into the Night Stalker and Yorkshire Ripper cases to Amazon Prime's 'All In', which investigates the history of voting rights in America. Yet if you're not satisfied with all that, then Fanta have produced an intriguing mystery of their own.

This trailer from directors Big Red Button has its tongue jammed firmly in cheek throughout, as it cleverly apes documentary tropes like shadow-hidden interviewees, ambushed scientists, and dramatically scored news footage. There's even the eponymous cork board and string included, as attempts to understand Fanta's latest flavour threaten to drive the country to madness.
