Pepsi is known to take its fans on a journey during IPL season: @ThatPepsiIntern last season, Pepsi tweet 20 before that and #CrashThePepsiIPL this season.
This journey involves the user to create lifetime memories; turning them into seasoned evangelists.
Last season, a chosen few became Pepsi interns and were flown to various matches across Middle East and India. This season, the brand has opened up the platform to anyone willing to submit a piece of their work.
Pepsi’s initiative calls out to budding creatives to shoot a 30 second ad film expressing their love for Pepsi. The winning ad replaces Pepsi’s official advertisement during Pepsi IPL8.
