The 1990's Cola Wars are back! "Drink Purple, Get Stuff"

HOUSTON, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the late 1990s, Pepsi launched its most successful long-term strategy of the Cola Wars, Pepsi Stuff. Consumers were invited to "Drink Pepsi, Get Stuff" and collect Pepsi Points on billions of packages and cups; they could redeem the points for free Pepsi lifestyle merchandise. After researching and testing the program for over two years to ensure that it resonated with consumers, Pepsi launched Pepsi Stuff, which was an instant success. Tens of millions of consumers participated. Pepsi outperformed Coke during the summer of the Atlanta Olympics - held in Coke's hometown - where Coke was a lead sponsor of the Games. Due to its success, the War program was restarted by Funktional Beverages, Inc. with the introduction of a Purple Cherry Cola.

The Purple Stuff promotion will have many commercials, including a young man in the cockpit of a Harrier Jump Jet. Below Purple Stuff will run the caption "Harrier Jet: 700 million Purple Stuff can receipts".

Since Pepsi got sued when John Leonard, of Seattle, Washington, sent in a Pepsi Stuff request with the maximum amount of points for a Harrier Jet promised and Pepsi did not accept the request … Purple Stuff will do it differently.

The Pepsi judgment was that a reasonable person viewing the commercial would realize that Pepsi was not, in fact, offering a Harrier Jet. In response to the suit, Pepsi added the words, "Just Kidding", under the portion of the commercial featuring the jet as well as changed the "price" to 700 million Pepsi points (see Leonard v. PepsiCo, Inc.)

Purple Stuff will actually be offering The Harrier Jet.
