It’s a monumental cross cultural moment. Or it’s a silly Pepsi commercial. Take your pick.
But it’s fizzier than any soda when New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (who just broke Johnny Unitas’s NFL record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass) reaches for the last Pepsi at the same time as Harry Styles of Anglo-Irish boy band sensation One Direction.
So what’d you think of Drew’s pipes? Don’t be too harsh on him. You haven’t seen 1D’s Niall Horan try to throw a pass.
The point is, why didn’t we think of this sort of crazy combo decades ago. Can you imagine an ad where Mickey Mantle and a young Paul McCartney reached for a Royal Crown Cola at the same time? That would be something.
