Since Beyoncé became the spokesperson for Pepsi I have been a Pepsi aficionado. So basically just for like two months. Although I like Pepsi far more than Coke, I’m not much of a pop drinker in general. But, since Beyoncé’s face is supposed to be on Pepsi cans, I can’t pass up the opportunity.
Last week Beyoncé released her new Pepsi commercial and it just might be one of the best things I’ve ever seen. It features her in different costumes from her past music videos and having a dance-off with them in a dance studio. It also features her new song “Grown Woman” which I can’t wait to hear in full.
In my Media Literacy class we are learning all about product placement and branding in the media. For homework, we had to watch a video about the two subjects and write a reflection on it. One of the examples given in the video was Britney Spears and how she was branded with Pepsi. This reminded me of my grade school days.
In about second grade, my class had a fierce rivalry between the people who were Team Britney Spears and Team Christina Aguilera. I of course was on Team Britney. When the Pepsi commercials came out with Britney, I remember half the class only drinking Pepsi and some of the others drinking Coca-Cola. We kept this rivalry up for years until both sides lost interest and found new artists.
But, the assignment reminded me of how good Pepsi was at branding! Even today I have a preference for Pepsi and think of the songs in the commercials from when I was younger! I thought it was funny that I had an assignment that let me reminiscence on my childhood! What makes it even better is that Pepsi also sponsors The X Factor, my new favorite show!
This is one of the Pepsi commercials I remember from being younger!
This week is the final week of classes and I couldn’t be more excited! Butler has definitely been a fun experience and I cannot wait until my years to come! I really hope my future years don’t go by as fast.
The only bad part about the year ending is that finals are rapidly approaching! Luckily for me, I only have one final during finals week. The rest of my classes either don’t have a final or are having it this week. My final is on the last day of finals (just my luck!) so I’ll be slowly but surely moving my stuff back home slowly during the week.
I’m going to miss so much about campus during the summer! I’m going to miss all the people, all my classes, and all the Pepsi, since Butler is a Pepsi campus!
The thing I’ll miss most is randomly seeing Blue 2 in Starbucks in the mornings! He better stay rowdy for when I get back!
