  • This is a demo for the Coke Radio Ad created for Coca-Cola by John Flansburgh. One of the melodies present in the ad also appears as a theme in the Mono Puff song, "Poison Flowers" ("Who's going to wear my sandals stained with Coca-Cola" / "Who's going to wear my sandals stained with cherry soda") The "thirsty cyborg with..." line appeared in live versions of "Born In A Graveyard", which later became "Dan Vs. Cog".
