I'd like to teach the world to sing in 4K.

I bet a generation or two of folks primarily know the "Hilltop" Coke ad through an epiphany Don Draper had in the final seconds of the Mad Men season finale. And then they went and looked for the full ad and couldn't understand why something that sounded so murky and appeared to occurred behind a veil of grit (a.k.a. film stock and old lighting) was such a big freaking deal.

Well, now those kids—and the folks that do remember the original ad—can enjoy it in a full remaster of color and sound!

I'm looking forward to the updated Max Headroom commercials that are sure to follow. Right? RIGHT?
