Video: Pepsi's New Super Bowl Commercial Is Going Viral

pepsi's super bowl commercial this year

Pepsi released this morning its new commercial for the upcoming Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.

It's pretty great.

The commercial, which features Steve Carrell, Cardi B and Lil Jon, addresses the "is Pepsi OK?" line often spewed by waiters and waitresses at restaurants when patrons ask for Coke.

A 30-second commercial in this year's Super Bowl is costing companies a little more than $5 million this year.

From Forbes:

Prices for Super Bowl TV commercials have nearly doubled over the past decade although its massive audience has shrunk, are little changed from last year’s record $5.24 million average cost for a 30-second spot, according to Bloomberg News.

CBS, which is broadcasting the game, has sold more than 90 percent of its available inventory and will likely sell out of its ad time prior to the Feb. 3 game between The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams because … well, it’s the Super Bowl. It is one of the few events that more than 100 million people watch live. Professional football is by far the most popular professional sport in the U.S. when measured by television ratings among other things.

This year's Super Bowl will feature the Rams and the Patriots. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
