Got 7 Million Pepsi Points? How about a Harrier Jet?

Love Pepsi stuff? How about a Pepsi Harrier jet?

When this commercial aired in the 1990s a guy cleverly and quickly acquired his 7 million Pepsi Points for about $700,000 and then tried to claim hims multi-million dollar jet. When Pepsi failed to deliver the goods, he sued and lost. I am not surprised the plaintiff lost (although I was disappointed). What did surprise me was that this ad was cleared by Pepsi’s legal department in the first place.

Later the commercial was changed with a Pepsi points total that was slightly less obtainable.
