There's a debate raging on another forum I frequent regarding the Solo Man. The author claims that before the Solo Man there was the Pinto Man. I did a google search on Pinto Soft Drinks and found nothing although I do realise that just because it doesn't exist on google doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Can anyone remember anything?? Solo soft drinks started in 1973 so the Pinto Man would have been earlier. Personally I reckon it's either BS or he dreamed it one night but anyway someone out there may also remember something. Attached is the original thread. "G'day. I was drinking some Solo with ice yesterday (cos it was 40 degrees in Perth), and it got me thinking back. Originally there was the Pinto man in these ads and they were selling Pinto lemon soda and then they changed it to Solo. Anyone else remember this?"
