Did you watch The X Factor last night?
While I think the show is starting off amazingly well (Watch out American Idol!), the other really cool part had nothing to do with the show itself. It had to do with the new Pepsi ad that had played during the commercials.
The ad was a straight up tribute to the greatest artists who’ve ever taken a sip on a Pepsi can:
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ray Charles[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mariah Carey[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] and, of course, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm].
The tie-in behind Pepsi and X Factor is that the first ever winner of the show will join the ranks of all these other great musical artists when they star in their OWN Pepsi commercial that will air during the Super Bowl next year. (On top of the $5 million dollar contract!)
Sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime deal doesn’t it? And you never know… Britney or Mariah might just pop up in the Pepsi commercial alongside the new X Factor winner!
Check out the Pepsi Music Icons Commercial below and share your thoughts… I clearly remember the Britney one, which has to be my favorite of all-time.
