In case you missed it, Pepsi released a new long-form commercial where Kendall Jenner solves all the country’s problems by handing a sexy police officer a soda.

To say the least, people were not thrilled with the ads confusing mix of messages, which seem to include:

There’s even already a parody version of the commercial which is far superior to the original.

One thing for sure, you’d never see Coca-Cola engaging in this type of shameful co-opting of counterculture for financial gain.

I mean except for that one time.
