I remember the morning I woke up and was greeted by this YouTube advert from Pepsi. I didn’t know what I was watching. And then when I had watched it, I wondered how that made it onto the interwebs. Surely there were a couple of people who raised objections…surely?
The ad is below for you to watch. But if you couldn’t be bothered (fair) then I’ll give you a brief overview. Black lives matter protest. Kendall Jenner modelling. Kendall sees hot boy in protest so decides to follow him and join said protest. Gets to front line, bravely hands police officer Pepsi. Everyone dances.
Basically it shows that the Kardashian/Jenner clan can’t make everything cool, which restores my faith in humanity somewhat. But the internet outrage was based around the dumbing down of serious issues regarding protest action and police brutality. Also since its release, Pepsi has withdrawn the ad but unfortunately none of us can unsee it.
Oh if only we had this back when I had to learn biology in high school. My favourite part has to be the explanation:
With the help of this course, parents ?? and grandparents ?? everywhere can now learn how to better communicate with their children and grandchildren ?? – without using any words at all!
Just think we will now live in a world where parents will actually know what the eggplant emoji means.

I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
