Just as Back to the Future predicted for the year 2015, the Chicago Cubs are obviously headed to the World Series, there are 3D movies, there are sneakers with power laces that tie themselves, video games that don’t require controllers exist, flat screen wall-mounted TVs are everywhere and there is Pepsi Perfect.
Well the Pepsi Perfect prediction was a little forced since the soft drink from Back to the Future Part II is specifically being made to commemorate the cult movie.
Pepsi is releasing the “Future-istic” bottle on October 21, 2015, the exact same day that Marty McFly arrives in the future in the 1989 sequel.
Pepsi Perfect will only be a limited edition collectible, with only 6,500 made and you won’t be getting 1955 prices on this special soda either. The bottles will cost you $20.15. GET IT?
At that price just give me a Tab. What? You can’t give me a tab unless I order something. Give me a Pepsi Free then.
There will be 1,500 of the Pepsi Perfect bottles at New York Comic Con, and diehard fans dressed as Marty McFly can get it for free.
“Fans have always been a little bit crazy about it,” Lou Arbetter PepsiCo’s senior director of marketing told USA Today. “We’re fans of this popular trilogy, and just generally, if you work at Pepsi you’re fans of pop culture. The brand has made its mark in pop culture frankly since Michael Jackson moonwalked. We’ve been dancing in and around pop culture for a while, so we took this as another opportunity to have a little bit of fun.”
Now if we could only get those fucking flying cars and hoverboards.
