Middle

From the first TV advertisement, the different costumes of two people are the key symbols of this ad because it indicates that Cola is not only the drink that people thought before but that they can make beautiful food music together. Another aspect for Cola in this campaign is fun, and "Vacuum" is the best example for this. First of all, in this advertisement, Dave Chappelle who is a famous comedian represented the product and the clear symbol of fun is when the robot eats Dave's pants when Dave refuses to give his Pepsi to vacuum. As well these two advertisements, PepsiCo also emphasizes "cola occasions" with energy which is showed by "Tailgating". Because these advertisements are showed on TV, which is one of the most popular entertainments in our daily life, intended audiences for these ads could be anyone who watches TV.

Conclusion

Pride & Ferrell, n.d). Pepsi's 2003 advertising campaign is a series of activities including special TV advertisements which have three different new slogans for Cola (for food, for fun, for energy), colorful and attractive billboards and persuasive radio programs. Moreover, PepsiCo focuses on the Cola itself as food and fun. "We're making cola the hero and showing why people drink it- because it's refreshing and it goes so well with food and fun events," said Dave Burwick (SVP and chief marketing officer of Pepsi-Cola North America). However, this advertising campaign is a great success not only in USA but also all over the world and brings some new ideas to Australian advertising.
