In the early 1990s, Diet Pepsi ran a collection of effective ads that featured beam Charles and the slogan, "You obtained the right one, baby, uh-huh."


You are watching: You got the right one baby uh huh

But not everyone liked the ads. Arthur Takeall declared that Pepsi stole the slogan from him, saying he had used the in his ventriloquism act because that years. The would choose an attractive mrs in the audience and also say, "You"ve gained The best One" and his puppet would certainly then say "Uh-huh." Takeall sued Pepsi because that $130 million, yet his situation was dismissed by the judge. However, in 1997 the Patent and Trademark Office rule in his favor, deciding the he to be entitled come the civil liberties to the slogan, "You obtained the right one, baby, uh-huh." but as much as i know, it to be a bit of a hole victory since Pepsi never ever paid him any type of money.
