|'It's an honour to be asked to be part of a Pepsi campaign.'|
- Faith Hill
3 May 2000
First it was Yahoo and Pepsi, now it's Coke and the redoubtable AOL. As if all this isn't bad enough, AOL is going to market a version of its 'software' for Sears. And 39 million Sears card holders will be able to pay through the nose to AOL with them. Start the countdown.
Visit Pepsi and take the challenge with Faith Hill, who speaks out on 'The Joy of Cola'. Take her as she is. Says Hill, 'It's an honor to be asked to be part of a Pepsi campaign.' Faith places great faith in Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin already having made memorable contributions.
Make your own music CD online with songs from over 60 artists who don't mind Pepsi making their music available on the net. Get the latest on the KISS Farewell Tour Webcast May 11 and see a clip of their fabulous Pepsi commercial.

Great news for all you soft drink lovers out there: Pepsico shareholders turned down a bid to reject genetically altered corn sweeteners in their products.
Coca-Cola already turned down a similar bid. McDonald's, General Mills, Proctor & Gamble (MS CEO Steve Ballmer's old company), Quaker Oats, and Sara Lee are all expected to deal with similar bids in the not too distant future.
At least you can eat Doritos safely - you just can't quench your thirst afterwards.
Earlier this year Minute Maid, owned by the Coca-Cola Company, tried to make a go of it with MaMaMedia.
Visit Ma Ma now - great fun, even for kids!
Did you know Minute Maid is part of the Coca-Cola Company? Interesting, huh?
