To market Dr. Pepper's Diet Cherry Chocolate flavor, they launched a viral campaign featuring the already young baritone YouTube sensation, Tay Zonday, 25 in a remake of the song that made him famous, "Chocolate Rain." The parody used in the ads is called "Cherry Chocolate Rain" and guest stars rapper, Mista Johnson.
The original Chocolate Rain video was sung and produced by the Ph. D. Candidate, whose real name is actually Adam Nyerere Bahner, and hit YouTube on April 22, 2007. Since then, it's had over 11 million views. View numbers will probably hit another spike thanks to the new Dr. Pepper ad.
