Nicki Minaj allegedly inked a $5 million deal with Pepsi to be the new face of the company and this is her very first commercial. You can view this clip in 3-D on YouTube if you’d like. There’s a regular version and a “no glasses” option. The company is trying to get re-associated with pop culture, according to The Huffington Post.
Pepsi has always had a close relationship with some of the most popular musicians. Michael Jackson worked with Pepsi and his hair and scalp sadly caught on fire which may have led to his lifetime use of pain killers; Britney Spears had some fun ads years ago, Sofia Vergara is also in Pepsi ads and now Nicki Minaj is rep’n the company. I’m not gonna lie, this is one of the worst ads that I have ever seen. It has sh!t to do with Pepsi and drinking the beverage doesn’t preserve any “moment for life,” but I guess consuming large amounts of sugar and empty calories does help you “live for now.”
