Gigantic Pepsi Beach Ball Gets Tossed Around the World

pepsi_beach_ball.jpg

Well this is apropos to our current location, sunny (sort of) Miami Beach Florida. Occasionally at the beach (or waiting in line at Disney for that matter) impromptu games of beach ball break out and that's exactly what happens in this BBDO-created Pepsi commercial but on a grander scale. Waaaay grander. As in the world's biggest beach ball ( have a thing for large, round , moving Pepsi logos) getting tossed around the world like some kind of touchy feely United Nations event.

But that isn't to crap on it. No. We like it. We just wonder how what would certainly be a multi-ton aerial ball wouldn't instantly crush the people beneath it as it bounced downward. Oh yea. CGI. Thank God for realism in advertising.

AN advert is never "beautiful" if you wanna make art make it....just don't try and make adverts art....
