Pepsi Commercial Description

Spring 2012 TV ad for Pepsi starts out with a man and a woman outside. They open a can of Pepsi and take a drink. Suddenly everyone is frozen in time. Even a man on a skateboard, mid-jump. You can even grab his skateboard, mid-jump. The man and woman get in a van, hopefully it’s theirs and they’re not stealing the van, and head towards the beach. For all we know, on the way to the beach, the van-thieving couple rob a couple of banks. Anyway, once we’re at the beach, everyone is frozen, mid soccer game. The couple take photos with some of the frozen people as well.

Apparently they are in Spain, because they come across a tomato fight. Where people are throwing tomatoes at each other, I think it’s called La Tomatina. It looks pretty neat frozen in time. Next, the car thieving, tomato throwing couple stumble into a Betsey Johnson fashion show. They move on, and finally end up at a Niki Minaj concert. She is frozen on stage with her dancers, pink hair and all. The couple opens up some more Pepsi (they’re hitting that stuff hard!), and everyone unfreezes, and the concert starts back up. The couple jumps into the crows and crows surfs. Then we see a montage of all of the places where the couple stopped, the tomato festival, fashion show, and beach. Finally, Nicki Minaj winks at us.

Tagline says: Live For Now.

More About Artist & Song

Nicki Minaj is so polarizing. People often tend to fall into two camps with her. She’s the best. Or she’s the worst ever. Or as articulate Youtube commenter rizzy420og put it: “worst female POP artist ever .. nicki is corny as hell
and pepsi suxx thas y there sales are droppin so baddd fuhck minaj and pepsi”. He really puts it in perspective doesn’t he? Seriously though, I tend to like her. Pink hair, and all the crazy stuff aside, she is a really talented rapper and a lot of fun.

Originally from Trinidad, Minaj moved to Queens, NY when she was 5 years old. She attended the LaGuardia High School for the performing arts. In 2007 she released her first mixtape, called Playtime is over and a year later, she won female artist of the year a The Underground Music Awards. She then signed with a subsidiary of Motown Records after rapper Lil Wayne discovered her. She then made guest appearances on his song “BedRock” and “Roger That” as well as on Mariah Carey’s song and video for “Up Out My Face”.

So what do you think? Are you a fan? Do you love her? Hate her? Or in the middle?

Here is the music video for the song “Moment 4 Life” by Niki Minaj:

I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
Cuz in this moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive
