Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Pepsi delays TV ad after tsunamis (IHT)

Is this one of the most unfortunately timed advertising campaigns in history? It must be in the top ten: An advertising campaign based on giant waves in the current world climate.

Unfortunately, Pepsi have threatened to sue anyone who publishes images of the ad, and so it’s quite difficult to track down. But because I’m just the best, I’ve found it for you here.

This 185th post was filed under: Tsunami 2004.

Today – six months later – Pepsi have decided that this particular campaign is to rise, pheonix-like, from the ashes of poor taste. Obivously, sensitivity to victims is only allowed to last six months.
