A 25th Century Single Soft Drink Dystopia Looks back on 1985 in this classic Pepsi Ad

I was not an active member of the Pepsi Generation in 1985, but I was a big fan of their ad campaigns. I especially enjoyed this look into the far future where a mysterious object, that turns out to be a Coke bottle, leaves a historian archaeologist professor completely stymied.

While I think a world with one soft drink option is fairly dystopian, I am relieved to see that in the far future, Pepsi brought back the logo and can design that I grew up with.
