Pepsi brings back Michael Jackson in ads (Dead pedophile hired by Obama-lackey PepsiCo)
Online Athens ^ | 5/5/12 | CANDICE CHOI

Posted on 05/06/2012 2:58:33 PM PDT by jimbo123

PepsiCo Inc. is going on a reunion tour with The King of Pop.

The Purchase, N.Y.-based company says it struck a deal with Michael Jackson’s estate to use the late pop star’s image for its new global ad campaign. The rollout will vary by country, but will include a TV ad, special-edition cans bearing Jackson’s image and chances to win leather jackets inspired by the singer’s style.

The promotion is part of a broader marketing blitz by Pepsi, which is looking to take business back from The Coca-Cola Co.

Michael Jackson was accused of being a pedophile, therefore he was.

Just like George Zimmerman is a cold-blooded murderer.

I’d suggest that Pepsi Cola stop using aborted fetal liver cells in testing its soft drinks. Coca-Cola doesn’t seem to need it.

The redneck favorite, too!

I always thought it was a poor third behind Coke and Pepsi, which were close (Coke being better).

I’m already boycotting Pepsi because of the embryo thing. That’s gruesome enough.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Pepsi hires Whitney Houston for their next campaign.

Just weird nonsense.

Pepsi recently laid off 8700 employees, one of the reasons being to free up $600 million for marketing.

And this is the best they can do??

I’ll stick to Dr. Pepper.

And they wonder why Pepsi is now #3 in sales, behind Coke Classic and Diet Coke. Ironically, the only reason that Pepsi survived is that Coke passed on a chance to buy its perpetually bankrupt rival during the Great Depression, figuring that PepsiCo would go under, anyway. After that, Pepsi started offering twice as much soft drink for half the price, and began gaining market share.

However, the Jackson campaign is just the latest in a series of recent blunders by Pepsi. A couple of years ago, they decided to spent most of their marketing dollars on social media, figuring that print, broadcast and radio were kaput. Their social media approach bombed and the next year they had to return to “traditional” media—and spend even more money on advertising, especially TV.

In that case, character assassination is perfectly acceptable.

Unless it's your character, of course.

I visited a regional school science fare the other day where a student was displaying the results of what various drinks do to teeth sitting in individual containers for a couple of weeks, each container covering a tooth with a different drink. Pepsi turned the tooth totally black.

Yes... when a middle-aged man sleeps with young boys some may tend to get that idea.

Then you have to believe that George Zimmerman is a cold-blooded killer, because some people say he is.

You can't have it both ways.

Pepsi backs Obama and every other Leftist cause. It ought to be boycotted...and besides, it’s awful.

Again reading the posts here, many of you have been brainwashed by the same media that states George Zimmerman is a murderer & Sarah Palin is a nut that even some conservatives took the line, hook and sinker. The media has viciously maligned Michael. Michael never laid a hand on any child nor would he harm them. What the media told us is that ONLY BOYS were sleeping with him. WRONG! There were also girls and Michael would sleep on the floor. The first settlement was due to Sony and the insurance as Michael was out of the country. The second accusation Michael fought it and was vindicated.

Now as for Pepsi, hmmm Michael hated Pepsi and loved Coke =)

Michael did some of his best work for Pepsi. I especially enjoyed the video where his hair caught on fire.

A year or so ago I read that Coke was the number one selling soft drink in the world. Number 2? Diet Coke, with Pepsi coming in third.
