Talking About My Pepsi Generation

Retro is big in advertising lately. There are two fun commercials currently running on TV right now that pay homage to their brand's past. First we have Pepsi, which was first marketed in 1898. The commercial shows the enjoyment of the iconic soft drink through the decades all in 60 seconds, to the tune of The Who's "My Generation."

Then we have the cheeky ad Virgin Atlantic is playing in the UK to celebrate the airline company's 25th anniversary. It reminds me very much of a scene from the Leonardo DiCaprio/Tom Hanks movie "Catch Me If You Can", except it's very 1980s, and if anyone doubts the recent study that men are attracted to the color red, this might change your mind. Both ads are well done and entertaining. Enjoy!

The Pepsi advert's wonderful! I don't have a TV so I hadn't seen it - it's really well-done. The Virgin advert's cute.
