TV Commercial Review

Heart or Humor


Pepsi unveiled its new commercial named “The Encounter.” Pepsi’s cinematic commercial is a sci-fi parody.

The Pepsi advert features William H. Macy, the well-known actor (Frank Gallagher) from Shameless (2011) and Fargo (1996).

The advert was created by creative agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and produced by MJZ. The song was created for this commercial.

I was expecting more humor from a character like Frank Gallagher.

The film was directed by Henry Hobson.
