Pepsi Refresh Goes to the People

What do you care about? In 2010, the Pepsi Refresh Project is giving millions of dollars to fund ideas that will refresh the world. To get people to take their ideas to the web site Pepsi has launched a television, online, radio, print and outdoor advertising campaign. The commercial, which reportedly won’t be aired on SuperBowl, features One Village by Black Eyed Peas, in a split screen video some compare to the Japanese YouTube hit Sour Hibi no Neiro.
