Michael Jackson and Ray Charles to Be Featured on Limited-Edition Pepsi Cans
Music icons Michael Jackson and Ray Charles will be honored with their own Pepsi cans this summer.
The soda giant recently announced that the late music icons will be featured on limited-edition Pepsi cans as part of the company’s Pepsi Generations Summer Music campaign.
In the photo above, you can see a graphic of the King of Pop wearing the classic red leather jacket from the “Beat It” video and a white T-shirt. Charles’ can features him in a blue-colored tuxedo with his famous million-dollar smile. The limited cans will be available at retail stores in the U.S. in regular Pepsi and diet Pepsi 12-packs and 24-packs.
The cans also come with a new slogan -- "This Is the Pepsi for Every Generation." Throughout the summer celebration, Pepsi will remind fans of all ages to "unleash their youthful spirit and live life to the fullest."
Pepsi is also partnering with Live Nation to deliver Pepsi Generations artist cups into their venues across the country this summer. In addition, the company will deliver exclusive music experiences to fans.
Both Jackson and Charles have promoted Pepsi in the past. Back in 1984, Michael and his brothers appeared in a Pepsi ad dubbed "Choice of a New Generation," while Charles appeared in Diet Pepsi's "You Got the Right One" commercial.
