The Jacksons, for Pepsi

pepsi

Some fun facts about this Pepsi commercial:

1) It was clearly filmed in Hill Valley, California (Goldie Wilson, mayor).
2) Like the Jacksons’ “Victory” tour the commercial was co-promoting, Michael Jackson barely appears.
3) Before he could do the Carlton dance only, the guy who played Carlton could do a killer Michael Jackson dance impression.
