Tuesday Throwback: Pepsi Points Can Buy You Cool Swag, But A Harrier Jet?

In this 1996 Pepsi commercial, a teenager shows off the cool stuff he got from Pepsi Points. He has a Pepsi T-shirt, which was 75 points. He has a leather jacket, which was 1450 Pepsi Points. Shades were 175 points. And then, he rolls up to school in a Harrier Jet…7,000,000 Pepsi Points. This one is best remembered because a business student found a loophole and ended up suing Pepsi for his Harrier Jet. Spoiler alert: he lost. Though Pepsi did end up changing the commercial to 700,000,000 points for the jet.
