Pepsi's core market is young -- teenage boys specifically

And you wonder why Michael Jackson was a spokesperson
2002-12-18 12:57:13 PM  
Well, it had to happen sooner or later.. my bet is, the NAACP threatened a boycott if they didn't hire a "more diverse spokesperson"... sigh.

Either way it is some slew pushing a crappy product. I would like to see Hulk Hogan and Alf promote this product.

olson twins... taste of the next generation?

i read a mag article on destiny's child (i was waiting in a barbershop). apparently, matthew knowles is one shrewd bastard, and just looks for ways to peddle his daughter out for money.

what really got me was why is spike lee (of all people) directing a farking pepsi commercial??
2002-12-18 12:59:06 PM  
Coke is it.

Pepsi is for kids.

Alternate comment:

Spears was apparently chosen during a deaf test.

As long as Pepsi continues to support the showing of young fine ass to sell their products, and rejects the immoral lyrics in rap music, I will continue to watch their commercials. I won't drink their shiat, but I'll watch.
2002-12-18 01:05:49 PM  
That's really quite disturbing, Flakeloaf...
2002-12-18 01:06:01 PM  
I can't believe nobody posted this yet. NSFW!
2002-12-18 01:08:00 PM  
My brother had those 2 pictures set up as his wallpaper for a while. Everytime I used his computer, I almost pissed myself. Nice job, Flakeloaf.
2002-12-18 01:08:05 PM  
Choose 1? Hell, I'll take both.
2002-12-18 01:09:24 PM  
I just figured it out. If you right click on Flakeloaf's images, and click properties, you can tell by the URL which one's which.

[nit-picking news editor]

Knowle's manager, her father, Mathew Knowles, said in early January she will shoot her first Pepsi commercial to be directed by Spike Lee.

Knowle's /= Knowles

I guess that's Texas journalism for you. Shallow and illiterate.

Who cares, they are both a couple of no talent hacks. All they have ever produced is musical fast food: packaged, processed shiat with a nice beat.

Fmonster: That's gotta be a fake; Her old man would have cashed in on that if it were real...
2002-12-18 01:14:21 PM  
Bass555 - Its a total fake. The face really doesn't look like her.

"I'll buy that for a dollar!!!!

I'm sorry, I could just hear her say that. oh well. I have no sence of humor, sorry.
2002-12-18 01:21:30 PM  
That's not what I heard...allegedly she signed a cross-over deal w/ FARK and Dr.Pepper...

I think they should sign Hedwig.

I'd like that taste test... but I don't want it to be blind.
2002-12-18 01:22:54 PM  
So they go from the ho of old to the ho of new. I am not surprised, she got raped by justin and they broke up so now shes dropping off of the scene.

Ripper: Have you ever seen a commie drink a glass of water?

Ripper: Vodka. That's what they drink, isn't it? Never water?

Ripper: On no account will a commie ever drink water, and not without
good reason.

Ripper: Water. That's what I'm getting at. Water. Mandrake, water is
the source of all life. Seven tenths of this earth's surface is
water. Why, you realize that.. seventy percent of you is water.

Ripper: And as human beings, you and I need fresh, pure water to
replenish our precious bodily fluids.

Ripper: You beginning to understand?

Ripper: Mandrake. Mandrake, have you never wondered why I drink only
distilled water, or rain water, and only pure grain alcohol?

Ripper: Have you ever heard of a thing called fluoridation?
Fluoridation of water?

Ripper: Well do you now what it is?

Ripper: Do you realize that fluoridation is the most monstrously
conceived and dangerous communist plot we have ever had to face?

Anyone else read the headline as "Pepsi chooses Beyonce over Britney after a blonde taste test"?
2002-12-18 01:29:52 PM" width="262" height="354">

They probally let Britney go because She doesn't drink that pepsi shiat, She likes Coke
2002-12-18 01:30:29 PM  
Frankly, I don't find either Britney or Beyonce attractive. They have horrible stuck-up, whiny personalities, and their only physical assets are their breasts. They're not even good looking.

Wake me up when someone signs a spokesmodel I could listen to for five minutes without wanting to kill myself.
2002-12-18 01:31:42 PM  
Pepsi should get Cradle of Filth to be thier next spokesman group, heh.

"the choice of those born in burial gowns"
2002-12-18 01:34:08 PM  

You didn't like Hedwig? That's too bad. It's one of my favorite movies. Deep, thoughtful, entertaining, innovative... and the music was terrific.

I'm not implying that this is the case with you, but most of my male friends who didn't like it never seemed to be able to get past the fact that it was a movie about a transsexual. They were so "icked" by the homosexual factor, they couldn't even give the film a real chance. Kind of unfortunate.

(In other words, if you didn't like the film, you're a close-minded, homophobic redneck with the IQ of an eraser. No, kidding.)
2002-12-18 01:36:29 PM  

That is a Fake.... Thats Sky Lopez's Body. She's ten times better looking.
2002-12-18 01:38:18 PM  
Fmonster: that is fake for sure...Not bad, but fake.

On that note anyone know what happened to:

Julia Stiles (I noticed she was mentioned)
That horrible actress eye candy from that movie The Glass House
Futurama getting so crappy
2002-12-18 01:38:40 PM  
Boys, why are you arguing over which one is a bigger troll when you know you'd hit either one of them any day of the week. Seriously, are your girlfriends hotter than either of them?
2002-12-18 01:40:22 PM  
Inaditch: My wife's friend loves it, she recommended it to us, and we both thought it sucked majorly. Lousy music, bad acting. The ONLY redeeming factor was the transexual! To each their own though... ;)
2002-12-18 01:41:57 PM  

Come on, you know that everyone has 2 rating scales. One for "real" people, one for celebrities. On my celebrity scale, Britney's only so-so, but if someone who looked like that approached me in real life, I'd gnaw my own thumbs off for a shot at her.
2002-12-18 01:43:21 PM  
Yeah, you're right. It's just kind of sad - must be a slow news day. And I LOVED Hedwig!
2002-12-18 01:46:09 PM  

Hedwig was an ok movie. However it tried WAY too hard. The flashback to his childhood was fun and the music was good, but the actual narrative was THIN! Wow, it was if the writter had about 1/2 a thought and then turned 1/4 of that into a movie. The crude animation didn't really do anything for me either...while the movie had promise, it just didn't deliver.
2002-12-18 01:46:09 PM  

Well, it's refreshing to find someone who didn't like the movie based on its merits (or lack of).

A couple of my friends started to wonder about me when I told them my favorite recent films were Hedwig and Moulin Rouge. My third choice, LOTR, made them feel a little better...
2002-12-18 01:46:32 PM  
Shoot zem. Shoot zem both.
2002-12-18 01:46:54 PM  

I've never found anyone with the airhead type personality attractive, it grates on my nerves like fingernails on a chalkboard. Have you ever listened to Spears talk? She's like a walking blond joke. There are a lot of women just as if no more attractive who actually have something going on behind the eyes, and you don't have to sit through bad pop music to watch them either.
2002-12-18 01:47:22 PM

2002-12-18 01:48:15 PM  
Moulin Rouge would have been a freakin GREAT movie if they didnt cheese out with doing medleys of modern songs. The teen spirit thing made me want to freaking vomit.

Fortunately, the movie got better as it went.
2002-12-18 01:50:45 PM  
Here's the pic's the fake is made from.... NSFW
2002-12-18 01:51:42 PM  
If I have to look at a transsexual in a movie, then like Classic Coke, I'll stick with the original ....

Crap.... cut and paste... NSFW​.shtml
2002-12-18 01:52:55 PM  
Inaditch- The fact you LOTR made them fell better. It would have made me more suspicious, what with the blatant homosexual inuendo present in the film. Methinks Samwise is a tad too friendly toward little Frodo.
