Pepsi Max drinkers can win a performance from stars such as Natasha Bedingfield and Ms Dynamite in their home town as part of the brand’s biggest music promotion.
The multi-million campaign is aimed at driving sales of the sugar-free cola in the summer and is targeted at 5.5 million 16 to 35-year-olds. It is fronted by Pepsi Max Downloaded, a six-week reality-style programme starting on July 31 on Channel 4 and repeated in September, which will be trailed on air with the Pepsi Max logo and a ‘Stars without Sugar’ theme.
Consumers can win the chance to be on the show through an on-pack promotion on all Pepsi variants. Each week, a winner will be chosen to ‘download’ a star to perform in their home town, with other prizes including MP3 players and karaoke machines.
The campaign will be supported with PR and point of sale material.
