Friend of mine sent me this: Evidently, Pepsi has decided to make a drink for the mid-20's male demograph...making ads in men's magazines and such as that. I completely buy that part, but the ad he was sent (and then sent me) seems way over the top. Anybody seen this yet?

I vote fake. The font size, placement and type are too amateurish, and it doens't look "slick" enough to be a pepsi ad. Also isn't "good to the very last drop" a maxwell coffee house slogan? And the way the bottle is held and cut off at the top, it gets minimum exposure in the ad (maybe because it's next to a topless woman?).

Oh yeh and the naked woman. I don't *think* a company whose success depends so much on adverstising (to beat out coke) would run an ad campaign with a naked woman on it. But then again I don't know anything about advertising, just common sense.

Ok, I might have misunderstood this post but Pepsi Max has been around for years.

As for the ad - I vote fake. I haven't come across a Pepsi Max bottle that looks like that (I searched around on the web but didn't find anything there either). Most new Pepsi Max containers have a pattern on the label.

Well, yeah - I mean, I was 99.9% sure the ad was fake, but was wondering if anyone else had seen this in email. Didn't want to post it in the Inboxer file, as it's a bit NFSBK.

I love Pepsi Max, but it's not available in the United States. Interestingly, you've got the demographic correct. It's my understanding that it was given that name since Diet Pepsi and such aren't very masculine names.

What's the deal with her breasts? The nipples look like they've been peeled off, and the breasts themselves look as though they've had a run through with a mammogram giving badger. And the one on the right...it seems like it's bigger up on top. I say it's a good ad for why to switch plastic surgeons.

Her breasts look normal to me. Nipples look different on every woman, and it is very common for a woman to have breasts of different sizes.

This looks like a fake...for the reasons given above by mister Lilorphan.

Though they *did* do a pornographic pepsi ad...and I *have* seen it [Wink]

This is a fake, I have seen it debunked before. I thought it was on Fakedetective.com , but I can't find it again.. If you can (maybe I didn't look properly) post up the link.

I believe its obviously fake but...

About the breasts, at first look they seemed plastice but then i realized itwas just the lighting. I'm pretty sure that pepsi would have had better lighting [Big Grin]

Interesting sidenote, the Icelandic distributor for Pepsi sponsored a nude Pepsi Max layout in the Icelandic magazine "Samúel" in the early to mid nineties. I remember it vividly, ehem, partly because I was selling freelance articles to that magazine at the time (ok, so I also spent some quality time looking through this particular issue, sue me, she was hot [Wink] )

In fact, I may still have it somewhere, I will see what I can find. The layout features a beautiful Icelandic stripper completely nude, with a whole bunch of cans/bottles of Pepsi Max and on a bed of ice. She rubs her relevant bits with the drink containers and the ice...

It's really just going all the way with what the "proper" adds are insinuating anyway, though [Big Grin]

If I find it, I'll scan it.
