"UNdo It with 7 Up" was an advertising slogan for the soda 7 Up from 1977-1978. The campaign was part of the company's established branding as the "uncola," a citrus alternative to popular cola-based sodas like Coke. The uncola strategy was so successful that the company used it from the late 1960s through the late 1990s, though it did eventually lose its effectiveness. In an effort to combat low sales and to appeal to younger audiences who did not grow up with the uncola branding, 7 Up stopped using the phrase in its advertisements in 1997.
