Dear Advertiser,

Just a Little Friendly Advice

Hey Guys! Im Callin the Cops! December 12, 2007

Dear Pepsi/Coke,

Maybe I did watch Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York in the same night – maybe I didn’t. (Okay, I did.)

Either way, something really stuck out to this strat comm junkie.

Prior to Home Alone Original starting on VHS there was an ad for Pepsi, and then during the film I got to see Fuller guzzling Pepsi. As I moved on to the sequel I noticed that Fuller no longer drank Pepsi, he was now a Coke kid.

Now, American Airlines held onto the product placement from film 1 to 2…what happened to Pepsi?

Alright, I hate Pepsi, so I’m actually glad to see them disappear from the Home Alone franchise, but who on EARTH would let go of the contract? Anyone who has ever seen the first movie knows that even if the second movie totally sucked it was still guaranteed to be a freaking gold mine!!!

Like I said, Pepsi sucks.

Sincerely,

K
