It doesnt look like Pepsi will be catching a break anytime soon.
While many people appeared to be upset regarding the commercials unintentional glamorizing of police brutality, others were disgusted by Pepsis misguided attempt to recreate an iconic Black Lives Matter moment.
The moment comes toward the end of the ad when 21-year-old Kendall Jenner spots a line of police officers in the distance as she marches with protesters.
She grabs a can of Pepsi and hands it over to the officer. He takes a sip and smiles as the crowd of protesters cheer Kendall on. The two-minute ad then ends, leaving viewers with more questions than answers.
That particular moment seemed to be a recreation of the moment Ieshia Evans stood up to law enforcement while protesting the death of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana last year.
Since its release, Pepsi has pulled the ad and issued a statement explainingitself and apologizing to Kendall Jenner.
Despite the statement ensuring the companys well-intentioned approach with its latest marketing stunt, people are still poking fun at Pepsi for being tone-deaf.
Some genius created a hilarious parody mimicking Pepsis Live For Now Moments Anthem, and its GOLD.
The hilarious Pepsi ad parody created byAustralian TV show The Feed is simply titled The World According to Pepsi.
Since Pepsi already used up the police brutality angle, the first problem were faced with is climate change.
In the first scene, a man informs an audience at the United Nations building that weve basically destroyed Earth.
In direneed of a miracle, the day is saved by none other than a can of Pepsi!
THANK YOU, PEPSI!
In the next scene, the issue at hand is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
I guess were gonna go another year without peace then
Um, not on Pepsis watch!
The parody continues with over two minutes of hilarious jabs at Pepsi for its outrage-sparking advertisement starring Kendall Jenner.
While the sketches are comical, you cant help but realize how they highlight how tone-deaf Pepsis ad really was.
But THATS the point!
