Watch Pepsi’s worst ad of the century here:
After being criticised a lot and facing backlash for an appropriate ad Pepsi has issued a statement to clear the air saying:
“The creative showcases a moment of unity, and a point where multiple storylines converge in the final advert. It depicts various groups of people embracing a spontaneous moment, and showcasing Pepsi’s brand rallying cry to ‘Live For Now,’ in an exploration of what that truly means to live life unbounded, unfiltered and uninhibited.”
Later, via People, a briefer statement was given in an attempt to explain once again: “This is a global ad that reflects people from different walks of life coming together in a spirit of harmony, and we think that’s an important message to convey.
But guess what, people are not buying the crap anymore. Angry fans took to Twitter and other social media sites to condemn the foolishness of the concept.
Here are some of the best sarcastic comments regarding the ad:
me: ill have a coke
server: we only have pepsi
me: thats fine.. but did you know they recently aired an ad that was not good?
