mikaloyd: HotWingAgenda: Who cares about NASCAR? I'm just sick of advertisers constantly trying to f&cking trick me into watching their shiatty commercials. Which is what the linked video explicitly is. The title even says it was created by and for the Pepsi Max product, and they have their Twitter hashtag in the description in a pathetic attempt at making their commercial go viral.FARK! Its where we learn to hate commercial crap and embrace music everybody else never heard of!Where home juiced vegetables you cant pronounce are better than Pepsi.And where hipsters are "in" and follow the hipster coolbook.
Ronnie_Zman: I'm perplexed as to how people still think the salesman was not an actor.
czetie: farkingismybusiness: Seems more like a Camaro ad. I don't see why Pepsi would advertise like this, but then again I don't watch Nascar.Pepsi has convinced itself that its advertising strategy should be all about "engagement" and "viral" and "youtube" and facebook likes" and "hashtags" and whatever else the cool kids are doing these days, rather than actually, you know, promoting the name or benefits of the product. It's marketing division is run by people with job titles like "Global President of Youth Engagement", I shiat you not.The result has been about what you'd expect: Pepsi has leaped from being the #2 cola in America to... #3 behind Coke and Diet Coke.
What_Would_Jimi_Do: i dislike jeff gordon almost as much as i did dale earhardt sr but that is a funny ad.csb, around 1990 i went to test drive a 5.0 mustang lx that had a boss 302 package, since i was only 19 at the time i needed a parent to ride along with me and the salesman. my mom came along. long story short, driving through downtown asheville the salesman says go ahead and get on it some. if you know asheville, around aston park my mom was going nuts. she was scared to death and the salesman loved it. i didn't get that car but in march of 1992 i got a 5.0 GT a month before i turned 21.
