Welcome back

In this time of uncertainty, nothing comforts more than the familiar. We take solace in things remembered, things that came before, the things that worked in the past. And nothing works better than pure, natural sugar.

To coincide with Pepsi's release of their 'Throwback' formulations of two classic colas, Actual Monkey joins in the sugary sweetness with John Sebastian's May 1976 hit Welcome Back.

Sebastian, former front man of the Lovin' Spoonfuls, a leftover of the 60's hippie movement scored an unexpected No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with the sappy theme song from the wholly unfunny sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter.

Who needs high fructose corn syrup when you've got Sweathogs.

I'm just sayin'.
