Pepsi came up with two terrific Super Bowl ads that are both clever and funny, although recommending the product they are touting in the first ad would be a challenge. The ad is pushing Diet Pepsi Max, which includes ginseng extract and an increased amount of caffeine, all of which is designed to keep you awake.
Basically they are selling uppers, which is not illegal, but is it ethical for Pepsi to advertise that its product gets you slightly high?
But then again, do most of us care? Nah! What the hey! Life is short. Drink Diet Pepsi Max and get high.
Diet Pepsi Max is featured in the first video.
The second video is also a Pepsi commercial and features Justin Timberlake. There are some very funny moments in this one.
I especially like the part where Justin’s crotch is repeatedly bashed into the mail box post. Watch.
Naomi Campbell is the star of the third ad, and that alone makes it worth watching. The music is a take off on Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which is somewhat of a surprise because Jackson is not exactly a welcome name in many US households lately.
The ad seems to work though, is very entertaining and was one of the higher rated ads aired during the Super Bowl. The cosmetic teeth job on the one lizard is especially good.
