Pepsi Challenge of 2014 in Norway: How to be Insulting to its own product but also its competitors!

The Pepsico Company has a new campaign that insults its own normal Pepsi and also ordinary Coca-Cola. The issue is that the Pepsi Challenge of 2014 is that it’s saying that it has more taste then the ones with sugar. Then it’s saying that Pepsi MAX has more flavor then Pepsi and also Coca-Cola which is the main idea for the campaign.

It is true that the sale of Pepsi MAX in Norway is the biggest seller of sodas in recent years. It’s about 30% of the market share alone. So not like the competitors in sales really has a shot on the Norwegian market. The Coca Cola has a big share as well, but the numbers aren’t as big as the Pepsi. Coca Cola had the giant campaign about a year ago on “share a coke with…” somebody. It was a gimmick which was a passing flue that was to play on sharing the coke on social media.

The difference between that and the one now from Pepsi is that they are claiming a lot, that their product is superior and also better than their original Pepsi because their Pepsi MAX is supposed to have more flavor then all sugar based Cola’s. That means that Pepsi, Coke, First Price Cola, RC Cola etc. The supposed taste of sweat drink would not be as good as MAX. Something that is insulting to the competitors, but also its main product Pepsi Cola.

Last time Pepsi did this Coke made the ‘New Coke’ which was a disaster. People wanted the traditional one and therefore it today says ‘Classic’ on the label to ensure the consumer that you is drinking the old sugar based soda that always.

That was in 80s and times have changed. The Coke Company has different diet based cokes on the market. Even ones that have left the market as well like TAB Extra. Today Coke has Light version and also Zero. Which they both market to different crowds: the Light to the woman and Zero for the men. Therefore this challenge of 2014 is supposed to both handle this and the ‘classic’ coke.

If they will earn anything on it, I am sure they will. Even if they somehow already ‘own’ the market for sodas here in Norway, if they have the same campaign other places I am not sure. But here it’s all over the place in the capitol and I am sure in all urban areas. The same way kiosk-chain 7eleven proclaimed for a year ago the taste test of their coffee and if it didn’t taste better than other places you could get your money back or something. Sure somebody bought into that. If people buy that Pepsi MAX has more flavors then the sugar-based ones, I doubt it! We all should know that it’s about preferences and not the actual taste. Because even the cult like fan-base of Dr. Pepper will say that the other sodas just taste bitter sugar-water compared to their favorite soda.

So please stop with nonsense. We’re not buying it! If I was a five year old naïve country boy again instead of a grown ass man, I might get caught in the gimmick, but I am too old and seen enough to know by now what it means. The answer is then, what do you think about it? Or am I walking alone, YNWA right? YOLO, Peace.

If you can’t get enough though! Check this old John Pilger documentary ‘Buurp’:

Throwback Classic #13 – Tony Yayo ft 50 Cent – So Seductive

This is a song that made me get a album that really wasn’t all that in 2005. Still a good track though? The Tony Yayo dance with the hands is still a funny sight! An we understand why he became lazy, he lived of 50 Cent. Tony Yayo didn’t need a solo career, he had a amazing G Unit track record and hot mixtapes. Then the tours with Fif secured the cake! Peace.

Throwback Classic #12 – Nas ft Quan – Just a Moment

Ten years has gone. Nas is still relevant and has switched labels. Dropped albums who is dope like the latest one . This is from the last album dropped on Columbia in 2004. Which is a decade ago! This isn’t a lovely club chant or where Esco drops knowledge or proving his skills. Its more like respect to those who has fallen. Peace.

Throwback Classic #10 – Cassidy ft R.Kelly – ‘Hotel’

For ti år siden kom Cassidy in i hip-hop verden. Med ett smell, det var med denne Swiss Beatz produserte låten. Dette var første singel til albumet ‘Split Personality’ som be utgitt i 2004. Selve låte kom ut i 2003. Det er er tid å siden og låten er forsatt fet. Selv om albumet har bare få låter som er verdt å høre på! Denne er blant disse.. Selv om han nå nylig har hatt en diss fram og tilbake med Meek Millz. Men, det gidder vi ikke å tenke på. Her er låta med R.Kells. Kos deg!

Peace.
