During the 90s, drinks brand 7Up had a character called Cool Spot. He appeared on its packaging, in video games, TV ads and of course, like any self-respecting mascot, made it to GIF immortality. According to WIRED magazine, this little red dot may have been the world’s first viral brand GIF. In India, this would have been just a fancy dancing bindi with sunglasses LOL.
