Pepsi Max brings back classic commercial
PURCHASE, N.Y. In a multimedia marketing campaign that launched Monday, Pepsi Max has put a twist on the Pepsi “Diner” commercial that aired during Super Bowl XXIX.
Instead of having two soda delivery truck drivers go head-to-head over a can of Pepsi, they both want Pepsi Max, which has zero calories but still has the punch of a Pepsi.
“We’re looking our competition squarely in the eye and making an unabashed claim about the great taste of Pepsi Max. That’s why we’ve revamped one of our most memorable Super Bowl spots to excite our consumers, bottlers and customers,” said Lauren Hobart, chief marketing officer, carbonated soft drinks, PepsiCo Beverages Americas. “The TV commercial today begins one of our most ambitious marketing programs that will have unexpected iterations across a broad array of media channels. It is classic, in-your-face Pepsi marketing.”
