    In one move Pepsi avoids potential legal clashes with Coke and gets heaps of positive press.

    Maybe. Or maybe they didn't want to bother because Pepsi is already better than coke. ZING!

    So true. Pepsi >>>>>>> Coke

    Why steal when you've got the best?

    It's nice to see a large company do something honorable for a change. I can think of at least a couple of possible ulterior motives, but companies have been doing so much bad/stupid shit that I really want to believe the best.

    I generally don't like either Pepsi or Coke (give me rootbeer, Sprite, or orange soda any day)...but since this is a "Pepsi" thread....I gotta say...

    If you're gonna rot your teeth, rot it with Coke! Vanilla Coke... mmm. Huh. There goes another tooth...

    Slightly off topic, but Pepsiman. I still remember my first exposure to him... (uh... lets move on now...) I think it was Fighting Vipers on Saturn... Pepsiman kicking street gang thugs through fences!

    Eh, Pepsi probably already had samples/formula and the whatnot. Then they engineered this event to get themselves publicity.

    That's what my tinfoil hat tells me anyways.

    Coke is better with good whiskey, Pepsi is better with cheaper whiskey. That said I am completely content to just cut the soda out and drink the whiskey by itself.

    Pepsi is definately sweeter. I tend to perfer pepsi to coke, but caffiene free coke to caffiene free pepsi.
