Pepsi Max Super Bowl Commercial Description

2012 Super Bowl commercial for Pepsi Max soft drink. This is a continuation of the story from a previous 1996 Super Bowl commercial where the Coke delivery man secretly loves Pepsi. They even use this song. To me it seems like the joke has worn thin, but who am I? The Coke Zero delivery man is about to reach for a Pepsi Max drink from the refrigerator at the store, when he sees an old man staring at him, scowling at him. He reaches grabs a Pepsi Max anyway, and walks up to the checkout line, hoping nobody sees him. The actress who plays the cashier in the Pepsi commercial is someone, but I can’t remember her name. If you know, please let me know in the comments.

The cashier makes a point of his purchase, and makes it obvious, saying:

Pepsi Max? Really? I love Pepsi Max, I drink it myself. I bet you’re wondering how they got all that Pepsi taste into a zero calorie cola. Melvin? Do we have a club card discount for Pepsi Max?

Then the buzzer goes off, balloons drop. The cashier says:

You know what that means? You have won Pepsi Max for life. FOR LIFE!

He is handed a giant check, we then see Regis Philbin who says “I’m back and you’re my first guest!”

Song Lyrics in Commercial

Your cheatin’ heart will make you weep
You’ll cry and cry, and try to sleep
But sleep won’t come, the whole night through

Patsy Cline - Your Cheatin' Heart. The song used in the Pepsi Max commercial.More About Artist & Song in Commercial

The song “Your Cheatin’ Heart” was originally written by Hank Williams. Supposedly, while he was driving around with his second wife, Billie Jean Jones, he was prompted to write the song because he was thinking about his first wife. So he told her the lyrics as Billy Jean wrote the words down on paper. The song’s recording session was the final one of his life, and was actually released a few weeks after his death in 1952. It stayed #1 on the charts for six weeks. “Your Cheatin’ Heart” was covered by Van Morrison, Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, Glen Campbell, LeAnn Rimes, and probably most famously Patsy Cline, who’s version is used in this Pepsi Max commercial.

If anybody can find an actual video of Patsy Cline singing this song, please let me know in the comments, as I would prefer that to this video below:
