For those who haven’t seen the new Pepsi commercial yet, this post might go over your head. You could go here and check it out ofcourse. It has Shahrukh Khan and John Abraham which could be an incentive, atleast the latter. (No, I am not a Shahrukh fan).
Personally, I think Pepsi has sunk to a low. The commercial is just so boring! Shahrukh and John bantering together rather listlessly – nothing really witty or even funny, and then the highlight being that a teenage boy addresses Shahrukh as uncle. And why won’t Indian advertising ever let humor do its own work? No, they can’t possibly trust that the audience will get the joke, so they have to rub it in, with Shahrukh trying his usual hangdog expression and blabbering on about how bad he felt. Pathetic really.
The only good thing is the shot of the Pepsi MyCan new pack, which does look pretty sleek, and much hotter than anything else in the market.
While I am certainly biased, Aamir Khan’s ads in the same category seem so much better!
