Skip to comments.Pepsi brings back Michael Jackson in ads (Dead pedophile hired by Obama-lackey PepsiCo)

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 Jacksons estate to use the late pop stars image for its new global ad campaign. The rollout will vary by country, but will include a TV ad, special-edition cans bearing Jacksons image and chances to win leather jackets inspired by the singers style.
The promotion is part of a broader marketing blitz by Pepsi, which is looking to take business back from The Coca-Cola Co.

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.
Nobody else quite knew what went on under blankets, but it didn’t look seemly.
The redneck favorite, too!
I always thought it was a poor third behind Coke and Pepsi, which were close (Coke being better).
Almost as insulting to Baraq as a big ol'ham sammich !
I’m already boycotting Pepsi because of the embryo thing. That’s gruesome enough.
I don’t buy products endorsed by dead junkies!
New Pepsi flavor, Jesus Juice.
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.
RIP Michael Jackson.
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.
Whoops. That should have read “science fair.”
Yes... when a middle-aged man sleeps with young boys some may tend to get that idea.
I won’t buy pepsi products. Period. And it has nothing to do with Michael Jackson...
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.
Jackson admitted sleeping with boys.
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 =)
I never liked Pepsi. This just proves that I have good taste.
A buddy wrote this several years ago;
Send People Like Michael Jackson To Lifetime Halfway Houses In Alaska
by Alan Srout:
I’d think anyone in that situation ought to be expected to be pelted with question marks.
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.
