I guess Pepsi should spend more time research the proper placement of the button

BTW, has anyone ever seen one vending machine carry both?!?

I think that takes place somewhere south of the American Borders, there is ambient noise that sounds like spanish. I suspect in Mexico you can carry both in a soda machine.

Nope not true in Mexico or in Colombia for that matter. If it is in a public place, they are not allowed to be in the same machine. My Dad used to work for Pepsi down in Colombia and they are super extrict with product placement and employee's drinking the competitor products.

Burp!

Ok, this was marketing and you guys got literal. :jerkit Ya crack me up. lol
Anyways, this was a very good commercial in terms of competition. I used to work in marketing a little. This was a good idea. People don't sit back and say hey, the button this or not in the same machine that. As far as where that can be in Cali or Texas for all we know. I mean sounds can be done in the studio. C'mon guys. People appreciate a good idea. That's why the superbowl commercials are important. Not just cause of the number watching but because an GOOD idea can stick. And that makes all the difference.
