    Default 1993 Crystal Pepsi Launch Ad

    Just saw that Pepsi is bringing back Crystal Pepsi in a limited fashion. One of the articles linked the original launch ad which featured some very familiar vibes. I'd completely forgotten about it, and thought some of you may get a kick out of the trip down memory lane as well.

    i remember buying that crap for Super Bowl Sunday in 1993. The only thing worse than the game was the beverage.

    that commercial was actually more well done than I remember them being.

    terrible product BTW, I tried it a few times (I worked at a grocery store at the time and as a promo they were giving it away a couple of times).

    Everyone involved in the production and marketing of Crystal Pepsi will have to explain themselves to their grandchildren.

    Pepsi kicks ass! It's Crystal Pepsi that didn't catch on...
    If the creators wanted to go forth with that "invention", didn't any of their marketing advisors tell them about a product called Sprite??? LOL.
