Pepsi Brings Back Michael Jackson
Pepsi will launch a TV ad starring Michael Jackson to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album "Bad" as part of it’s global music-themed campaign ‘Live for Now’. The 15-second ad is soundtracked by a remix of the title song by Dutch music producer Afrojack. It features various images of the late singer taken from music videos from the album including Smooth Criminal and Man in the Mirror.
