The effort, slated to break during the game next year, will run through the spring."</i><br /><br />Letís hope <i>this</i> ad campaign fares better than the previous iteration, which was a complete flop. Part of the problem was Pepsi's sloppy distribution efforts that failed to stock yellow-capped Pepsi bottles across North America in a timely manner. Months after the "I fought the Law" commercials appeared on television, these specially marked bottles were nowhere to be seen in many urban locales. <br /><br />As they say in the entertainment business..."it's all in the delivery".

Did anyone hear about Pepsi's billion dollar giveaway? That doesn't seem to be getting as much interest either, despite the ridiculously large sum of money.
