jude law pepsi ad

A lot of beverage ads go for the classic ‘drink this: it’s tasty/refreshing/good for you’ template. Not necessarily original, but it works.

Not for Pepsi in Japan. It’s cast Jude Law in an epic short film called Momotaro. A heavily made-up and elaborately costumed Law is… we’re not sure, to be honest. A child gives him an origami bird, a giant pig monster smashes up an arena and there’s a lot of powder thrown around. At one point Jude looks to be covered in lava, but there’s a big rock creature too, so maybe that’s something to do with it.

And the Pepsi? It’s ‘strong’ apparently. Answers on a postcard…
