The Choice Of A Newer Generation

Those of you who loves collecting soda cans and dust at home should consider stocking up some Pepsi now. Why?
Because they are heading in a brand new direction for their branding and packaging, that’s why. Breathing a new life into an old brand.


The brand new Pepsi logo is suppose to represent a smile. I see a smirk.
And I don’t like the new look. Too clean… too polished for my liking. Really “yat pek si” this time.

Do many of you collect these cans and bottles? I do know a few who collects Coca Cola bottles. The soda cans tend to spring a leak after a few years… the top or bottom would spew its content creating a sticky mess… be it in your cupboard or shelf or altar. It seems the irregularity in room heat and pressure over the years does that. Prolonged expansion and contraction finally made the aluminum cans give in huh. Air conditioned rooms help solve the problem. Yay… contribute to global warming just to preserve some not-so-limited Coke bottles. Smart. Mother Nature should spank those ignorant collectors. Not those who rummage through trashcans and drain.

For the kick of it… here’s a list of Pepsi’s slogans. I have no idea there were so many.
