Tango (drink)

Tango is a fizzy soft drink (soda pop) in the United Kingdom

It comes in various flavours, including the original orange, apple, lemon, cherry and blackcurrant.

The orange flavour adverts feature various bizarre occurrences with the catchphrase "You know when you've been Tango'd". These began in the early 1990s with an ad featuring a man being slapped around the ears by an orange-clad person after drinking Tango. It received widespread condemnation after a craze for "Tangoing" people swept the nation's playgrounds, and there were reports of children receiving serious injury or even being deafened. Whether or not these were true, subsequent adverts have used less dangerous practises.
