This is the cringeworthy Pepsi ad that sparked an outrage in human rights protestors and real-life activists.
In this new ad, Pepsi fantasizes a peaceful protest where everyone is smiling and happy and non-aggressive. Well, what a wonderful world that would be. Am I right?
Unfortunately, that isn’t the real world – and that’s the problem. We have become used to witnessing a desensitized world when it comes to television and media, but people are outraged that Pepsi would lessen the very real impact of a social protest. Making it appear that all problems can be fixed with a Pepsi.
Check out some of the responses from these activists here:
