Pepsi Max - Head nodding - (2008) :60 (USA)

WAKE UP PEOPLE! I could use some of that right now. This ad features Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J and even Missy Elliott nodding off. ZZznnnore.

Yes, that is Chris Kattan yelling "stop it" at the end. Which is funny even if you don't know Chris Kattan & Will Ferrell's SNL skit "Night at the Roxbury".

Principal talent: Chris Kattan, Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J and Missy Elliott

This one is my favorite so far. Overall Pepsi/Pepsico has done really well this year. Coke is lagging.

Yes, this one is great, though the elevator/office shot bothers me. The guy who grabs a drink isn't there in the setup.

I must have a different version, it's the same three in both shots when I watch it.

Oh he's there. He's just on the left and you're busy staring at the blond. ;P

Åsk, you're so much nicer than I am. :-)

Dabitch's picture

Not! ;P

Neaner's picture

You got me. I don't know how I missed that guy. I don't even like blondes.

Nicely done and a good challenge to Coke.

I don't think this is so great. No appeal or desire to identify with the ad.

It is funny. Also a bit typical.

At least it was a somewhat interesting way to use the celebrities...unlike some of the other spots from this year.

a hack concept for the brain dead.

Clue: SNL is not funny any more. Stop it!

This is horrible! The idea is boring and it just goes on and on.

And that music!! OMG! This will win the Lamest Music Award this year.

And the art direction is butt ugly...

Ah, people were so divided on this. ;)
