Where were you when Kendall Jenner vaguely flirted with an Asian guy and gave a cop a soft drink?

It represents my lifestyle and status as a street-savvy irreverent youth who lives large, yet hungers for the next level in life.

Anyone that participated or contributed to this is a failure of a human being.
Every one of them likely old white people.

Remind me to never drink Pepsi again.

Is there an app for this Love Revolution I can put on my iPhone?

Mob cheers for the satiated cop.
He'll be dead of diabetes in short order.
I don't know if they're telling you to do that, WB, but they're certainly not telling you to stop.

This song sounds written by court order in trade for dropping drug charges.
Nice to see the oligarchy recouping some of its costs of manufacturing regressive outrage culture by selling cross-branded ad space. They really put some Tronq in it and leveraged their cognitive slave properties for a next level of sales synergy. I bet their future projections look asymptotic to the max!

That cop's face at the end is all like "gee, maybe we really SHOULD stop killing black people!"
|Quad9Damage - 2017-04-06 |
In other news, Pepsi is one of the many corporations that may be murdering YouTube with a massive boycott.
I read the latest estimate of profit loss over the 20 oligarch salute hovers somewhere around 750 billion. A tiny TINY barely scratch at all smudge off of Alphabet's profits, but enough to give them an excuse to force a pro-corporate agenda and silence dissent.
Money never stops being a deficit on the species. Having bartering goods that rot in a silo destroying the wealth of its owner seems like utopia now.
Running on a caffeine deficit here, I Donald Trumped the numbers! My innumeracy is yuge.

I don't watch the show but Empire had a Pepsi commercial inside the episode. And it wasn't subtle about it at all: they're making a Pepsi commercial and the climax of the story arc is, well, a 30-second Pepsi ad. And I actulally thought it was cool, kinda like when Community got purchased by Subway: big corporate giants will have their way hogging time inbetween shows already, so why not at least have fun with it. So anyway it seemed like Pepsi was winning the cola wars not by tricking Generation Pepsi into consuming their product, but rather by simply showing Pepsi for what it is, advertisements and all.
INT. MEETING ROOM / PEPSI HEADQUARTERS - NIGHT
PEPSI CEO: Alright Team Pepsi! The Empire bump worked great! Now, what other things do black people like?"
Always base your revolts on grass roots beer.
Between Rick and Morty's OBNOXIOUS McDonalds commercials, and every episode of Archer pimping some upper middle class product right at the camera, it looks like our common corporate enslavement remains right on schedule.
Yeah I was thinking of R&M too.. hard to say. The only other obvious ad embedded in the show itself I can think of is the Nintendo 3DS Zelda bundle thing in which Rick encourages folks to flip them for more than they're worth at the store. I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to do that, and Nintendo themselves were on the front lines cancelling peoples' Switch pre-orders when it was discovered they were already being sold on eBay. And as the reddit link points out, the McNugget sauce was gross. I recall it just tasting like the free soy sauce packets you can get at gas stations anyway, so if this does bring back the McNuggets sauce it'll most likely fail and probably result in a sales dip for McDonalds.
More fun readin'!
Zest, everyone forgets Shoneys!
And Carl's Jr.
but in good news episodes 1 of the new seasons of both Rick and Morty and Archer are fucking fantastic.
Yeah I was thinking of Shoney's, but didn't South Park do more-or-less the same thing when Cartman uses stem cells to clone a Shakey's? Shoney's, which is not around where I live, is portrayed just like a Denny's. Oh yeah and it's a prison. I'd be surprised if either Shakey's or Shoney's saw any more of a rise in profits than Cinnabon did when Saul mentioned he'd probably be managing Post-Breaking Bad. As for Carl's Jr. The Carl's Jr. ad I didn't mention because it's not in-show, so that's no different than the old Simpsons Butterfinger ads.
And I guess there's a line in the sand somewhere; South Park shits where they eat so much that Chipotle and PF Changs give people traumatic shits and life simply goes on. In the old days, that would've just been Krustyburger and maybe Bumble Bee Man starts a Taquiera, but most people find themselves removed when a character reaches for a "Peppy Cola" or eats at "Royal Burger." Even The Goddamn Dude had In-and-Out and shopped at Ralphs, just like the rest of us.
The best part of being is Canadian is half of the product placements (like Shoney's) are US-regional only and go right over your head and assume are a fake-ass restaurant. Had to google that one.
Oh and socialized health care. That's pretty good too.

What the hell was that half-assed dub at 1:22? That's somehow the most irritating thing about this.

"I am thrilled to join the legendary roster of icons who have represented their generations and worked with Pepsi,” said Jenner in a statement. “To me, Pepsi is more than just a beverage—it registers as a pop culture icon and a lifestyle that shares a voice with the generation of today. The spirit of Pepsi—living in the ‘now’ moment—is one that I believe in. I make a conscious effort in my everyday life and travels to enjoy every experience of today."

I guess this makes Coke the official cola of Nazis.
Nah, coke is NWO
"I would like to buy the WORLD a coke" WFT!!!!
how about you buy AMERICA a coke first !
Dark stormclouds gathered over Atlanta Georgia, as Field Marshall Muhtar Kent prepared to address the Board. "The Pepsi'ists are massing at our Northern boarder, we must strike hard before they have time to mobilize their celebrities". He stabbed at the map with a nervous finger, pointing to the sites of viral marketing and hip young spokes homosexuals wagging their tongues seductively while they break the fifth wall. "Coke chemtrails are being laid to sensitize the populace, and our psycho-acoustic shock troops are writing catchy jingles to subconsiously induce appropriate flows of endorphines to the consumption centers. Soon gentlemen, the cola wars will be over! We will triumph, we will prevail! Our will is unbreakable! We shall drive the pepsi'sists from their homes, salt their lands, and sterlilize their women!"
Kent slumped back in his chair. The overhead fluorescents buzzed and popped. This was gonna be a tough pitch.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaactually, in the 50s and 60s, Coke had a very strict corporate policy of not advertising with or to non-Caucasians. It was a huge deal for them.

Remember when inserting footage of dead actors seemed like the height of soft drink ad bad taste?
Needs a walk on by Mahk.
Now we'll never see the followup commercial where Ed Sheeran pours a bottle of Arizona ice tea on Trayvon Martin's grave and he bursts from the earth like a phoenix reborn.
|dairyqueenlatifah - 2017-04-06 |
Oh dear God, what the fuck is this shit? What is the message here? " Be a good person. Save the world. Buy someone a Pepsi today!"?
Five for legitimate evil. Fuck literally everyone involved. Yes, even the chick who served the producers coffee for minimum wage. Fuck you.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2017-04-06 |
This is vapid, self-fellating, and covered in meaningless symbolism for selfish reasons. Unfortunately, that makes it a brutally honest depiction of modern-day activist culture.
Believing in things is for SQUARES. *hits bong and watches 17 hours of South Park*
Yes, believing in things is colossally fucking stupid.
Learn to observe and predict, like a goddamned human.
|cognitivedissonance - 2017-04-06 |
There is precedent, though: Pepsi benefitted heavily when the boycotts of the 60s hit Coca-Cola.
|Xenocide - 2017-04-06 |
The best part is how completely the crowd loses their shit at the end.
"THE COP DRANK THE PEPSI! THE COP DRANK THE PEPSI! RACISM IS NOW IMPOSSIBLE! OH GOD I'M SO HAPPY! HUG ME, FELLOW HIP NON-WHITE TEEN!"
Trump watches the protest live on TV, but the second the cop drinks the Pepsi he explodes like a 16-bit video game boss.
Yeah, I was in awe of how everything kept getting worse and worse but that moment was the cherry on the shit sundae.
The good news is that the video has about six times as many dislikes as likes. I love those rare occurrences when I end up hating the same thing as everyone else for a change.
Martin Luther King's ghost was unavailable to appear as he has an existing endorsement deal with Red Bull.

Stars to the first protestor who lobs a few full cans of the product at the police during the next demonstration.
|il fiore bel - 2017-04-06 |
The memes were the best part.
How long before 4 chan starts passing out Pepsi at protests? I give it a week.
I bet Pepsi can actually blind people.
|Robin Kestrel - 2017-04-07 |
I don't understand this Pepsi generation.
|Binro the Heretic - 2017-04-08 |
Everything about this commercial is a prime example of old people not making one iota of effort to really understand the young, including Pepsi's initial defense of the commercial.
"We only intended it for overseas markets."
Wow, it's a good thing we don't have technology that allows people to share media across the entire world.
