Oh yeah! The Kool-Aid Man is getting a makeover.

Piggy-backing on the success of its liquid flavor enhancer MiO, Kraft Foods is unveiling a new Kool-Aid Man on Monday as it promotes a new liquid Kool-Aid mix.

Once known for crashing through bricks walls and screaming "Oh yeah!," the new computer-generated Kool-Aid Man is more laid back, wears his flavors like clothing, talks and even has a bit of a sense of humor, MSN reported.

A new commercial shows a clear Kool-Aid Man stepping out of the shower and picking an outfit from a pantry of different Kool-Aid mixes, according to The Associated Press.

"I put my pants on one leg at a time," he says in the ad. "Except my pants are 22 different flavors. I've got grape pants, I've got watermelon pants..."

Like MiO and Dasani Drops, the new liquid Kool-Aid mix can be squeezed directly into a glass of water. It comes in cherry, orange and tropical punch flavors.
