Kids' Beer, a non-alcoholic drink from Japan which tastes similar to cola, is expected to arrive in shops in Britain soon. It is sold in brown glass bottles and has a frothy, lager-like head when poured. The labels, which depict cartoon characters, carry the slogan: "Even kids cannot stand life unless they have a drink."

One advertisement for Kids' Beer, known as "kodomo biiru" in Japan, shows a boy crying because he has failed a maths test and then weeping for joy after drinking the beverage.

What'll they think of next ?!

Product itself doesn't seem too bad, it's supposed to have stimulant properties as opposed to alcohol a depressant. I think that the slogan is intended to be humorous, towards the parent figures, and for that it is intended to sell; parents will have a good laugh (although slightly offended), note the stimulant ("make your child smarter") properties ("ahh, ok, I get the message/intention"...relief), and many will buy it.

Probably won't do to well in the US though.

Not that drinking beer is really that big a health threat.

It is for anyone with a tendency to develop alcoholism. Alcohol in moderation may not be harmful, but alcoholics can die from DT's as well as liver complications. BTW the liver is an organ that once damaged can not be repaired by the body as far as I understand.
