    Ummm... if Pepsi gave $2,000 per cap to the 800,000 caps with that number, instead of the $10,000 they promised, it would have equaled $1.6 billion. Not $10 million like you said. $10 million at $2,000 per cap would have only paid 5,000 people. You honestly couldn't figure out that math?

    the problem with the U2 crap was that there was no way to remove it from your iphone. The first thing most people did was try to delete that shit only to find out they couldnt, including myself. At the time I was pretty fucking annoyed to say the least.

    On top of that, the US also boycotted the Olympics so it’s not like they were braver than the USSR by staying to compete.

    Pepsi also had a campaign to return bottle caps in the mid 90s. Each cap was worth a point and if you turned in 1 million points, you'd get a private jet for free. Someone returned the million caps and pepsi refused to honor it thinking no one would have been that crazy to collect that many caps. One lawsuit later and the man had his plane.

    I heard of the infamous 349 promotion from my elders when I was a kid. Basically some of these filipinos who "won", threw lavish parties to celebrate their win and the money they‘d soon be getting... some even promised money already to their friends and relatives. Damn.

    Redeemer the infamous Harrier Jump jet for 70 million Pepsi points?

    Well someone got that Jump Jet (Nah they didn't get it, but still

    If you look it up it's there and the irony is, someone actually would have gotten the jet..

    Oh, the Energizer Bunny issue gets dumber. It wasn't for no reason that people thought it was advertising Duracell. They specifically lifted the concept from a Duracell ad, with the bunny's intro directly parodying an earlier Duracell "Drumming Bunny" Ad.
