Humorous Aside: Che Guevara and the capitalist comeback

Just when you thought Che Guevara's reach couldn't extend further into modern capitalist society:

In 2006 I presented a paper at a conference in Copenhagen. After the conference was over I visited my wife's family in Austria. While I was there I found this product and couldn't resist buying it as I was dumbfounded that it even existed. It's been sitting in my cabinet ever since until today when I noticed it again.

When I saw it I remembered this old joke I thought of at the time:

It's a communist revolution into the capitalist energy drink market!

Above Che's head it reads "THE REVOLUTION OF ENERGY"
