CHI’s Asylum: Beyonce’s New Pepsi Ad Analysis

share on:

Yup, it’s Beyonce aka Destiny’s Child aka Queen Bey aka King B aka Mrs Carter or Mama Blue Ivy Carter again – whichever one you prefer to call her really.

The woman really is a bonafide hustla, apologies, DIVA.  I LOVE Beyonce to bits and I want to be her(well, in my dreams – I’m currently seeing a white garment shrink to help my situation).

During my netblog surfing yesterday on Beyonce’s Tumblr page, she posted a 6sec video teaser with 04.04.13, 9amEDT and #BeyHereNow as the catchphrase.  My immediate reaction, I picked up my phone, and set up a reminder(I’m not ashamed of it) so I could be one of the first on her tumblr account to see what  #BeyHereNow was going to be all about.

At 1400hrs my county’s time, I got online as a true fan should with all the excitement you can imagine and there it was, the teaser is for a new PEPSI advert featuring BEYONCE, of course.

Here are some of the clips for those of you who can’t stream videos on your phones -(I’m really lovely, I know, you don’t need to thank me.)

So the video starts of with Beyonce doing a dance routine to her new song ‘Grown Woman’. (Side Thought: This woman’s body sha – when would I receive my body’s blessings so I can go after my calling?)

She grabs a can of Pepsi Max to give her more energy.

And one look in the mirror, she spots herself as Destiny’s child’s Bootylicious Beyonce …

Next up is Crazy in Love Beyonce (her first single as a solo artist)…and they do a quick dance off together.

Next up is Single Ladies Beyonce, who tries to show the current Beyonce up with the finger snapping Single Ladies dance routine …

By this time all the past Beyonces – if you blink you might miss them-(she is seen wearing costumes from all her biggest songs – Naughty Girl, Foxy Cleopatra – Work It Out, Sweet Dreams, Baby Boy, Countdown, Etta James’ At Last, and her first Pepsi) get with the programme, that the current Beyonce still has all the moves.

Finally, she does a quick spin and the Mirrors shatter into tiny pieces with all the past Beyonces gone – in real life if you shatter glass like that, blood go spill.

She ends with the slogan for the ad, EMBRACE Your Past, But LIVE for NOW.

I must admit immediately I saw this advert, I went out, got myself a can of very cold Pepsi Max.  I’m not sure what I was hoping for, maybe I was hoping I’d see sexy images of myself in the past or maybe become Beyonce, but Nah, it didn’t happen.  Instead, I kept thinking, I really shouldn’t be drinking Pepsi or any carbonated drink. My tummy would be bloated and that’ll mean extra weight shifting.  *big sigh*

In all honesty though, there is no way Queen Bey would be drinking Pepsi Max or any other Pepsi regularly to look as fabulous as she does or sing as she does. #NAWASH.

Anyway, watch the 1min video below and see if you could possibly EMBRACE Your Past, But LIVE for NOW.  Enjoy Pepsi Max Beyoncé “Mirrors” – Official 2013 video – #BeyHereNow. Share your thoughts in the comment box below.  The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
