Why did Pepsi pull their ad?

Gavin McInnesArchive

With a lot of hype, Pepsi launched a new commercial yesterday, starring Kendall Jenner. The concept was that Jenner ditches a glamorous photo shoot to march with a bunch of wholesome, peaceful protesters. 

(LANGUAGE WARNING)

She goes up to the world's best looking, least intimidating cop, and hands him a Pepsi as a peace offering, like that hippie chick sticking flowers in National Guard rifles in the 1960s.

After everyone on the Left and Right made fun of it, Pepsi pulled the ad.

I walk you through the commercial and tell you what was really wrong with it.

The regressive SJW’s would have a complete melt down over the old 1960’s Coca-Cola ad: ‘I want give the world some love, and keep it company …it’s the song I hear!’

Corporate communism. Big government humping big business and vice versa. It’s everywhere now, pushing the far left social agenda while the same far left politicians give them tax exemptions and free carbon credits (i’m looking at you Wynne) and the occasional $200,000,000 grant (looking at Trudeau…and still looking at you Wynne) to Ford. Remember, pay your taxes people, brought to you by Bombardier. Heck even the NFL, who gets hundreds of millions of tax payer dollars to build stadiums, tax exemptions, etc., etc. is suddenly losing it’s mind over bathroom laws. Glad all these SJW corporations pay their fair share. Oh wait, they don’t even come close. Oh well, judging by the number of blue haired walruses you see walking everywhere these days, it must be working for Pepsi.

Gavin, it’s time to grow up and get with the program at The Rebel. The media hostility has nothing to do with highjacking racial issues and everything to do with the fact that the production was done in-house and not by using the traditional ( legacy) production channels that require ad agents, models, media consultants etc. They are all pushing back at Pepsi because their gravy train involving hugely overpriced content creation for irrelevant products is threatened to stop at the station. Just as they hate Trump for bypassing them and winning while Hilary fell into line with $billions of ad spending and losing, they are aligned with the MSM in generating outrage. If every Fortune 500 company decided to do their content creation in-house these agencies would be seen as largely irrelevant and soon out of business.
