Pepsi’s got a thing for the ladies.
For the past 15 years, some of entertainment’s biggest stars have joined forces with the beverage brand for memorable commercials, most of which have aired during the Superbowl. Seeing Beyoncé on the set of her fifth Pepsi ad made us a little nostalgic for Pepsi days past. Whether its the dance moves, soaring voices or unforgettable dialogue, all of these Vixens have left their mark on the soda giant.–Nicole Brown
In a career than spans over half a century, the “Queen of Soul” has very few product endorsements. However, she lent her unforgettable vocals to the soda company’s “Joy of Cola” campaign. Who could forget adorable child star Hallie Kate Eisenberg lip-syncing to Aretha’s voice in their TV spot?
Mary J. Blige
We’re still trying to forget that painful Burger King commercial Mary shot earlier this year. The “Queen of Hip Hop Soul” has had better days as a spokesperson, including her stint with Pepsi in 2001. Although she shared the responsibility with Britney Spears, whose commercials were EVERYWHERE, we still enjoyed Mary’s endearing TV promos as well.
Mimi hit her signature high notes for Pepsi’s 2008 “Cool Tones” campaign that promoted and gave away ringtones with the purchase of a Pepsi bottle. Sky-high heels, a curve-hugging dress and signature smile? Yup, this commercial is giving us the Mariah we know and love.
In 2004, hip-shaking Shakira seduced a convenience store clerk for Pepsi’s “Dare For More” campaign. “Objection: Tango” from her debut album Laundry Service provides the soundtrack while Shakira provides the moves.
Badass Vixen Pink joined Pepsi vets Beyoncé and Britney Spears for the epic “We Will Rock You” campaign. Set in an Grecian stadium, the three warrior princesses throw their weapons down and join the audience in a rousing rendition of the Queen classic. Oh, and we see you, Enrique!
Nicki Minaj’s superstar status was set in stone as Pepsi’s “Live For Now” commercial took over television airwaves this year. Backed by dancers dressed in Barb-garb and facing a larger-than-life crowd, Nicki helps take the brand to another level.
Modern Family’‘s resident bombshell lends her dance moves and hilarious one-liners to Pepsi’s “Live For Now” campaign. I can imagine plenty of men would want a can of Pepsi after watching this.
