Vito Gesualdi, a Youtuber, has made one of the best things to come out of Berkeley in many decades. He decided to take a cue from the Pepsi “protest” commercial and Kendall Jenner to see if it really could bring peace to the world. So he went to a Berkeley protest with nothing but a camera, a soft drink, and guts!
“People are fighting in the streets,” says Gesualdi while driving in the car. “Violence, it’s crazy. But luckily I recently watched a Pepsi ad where Kendall Jenner uses Pepsi to basically heal the rift in our great nation. So before I get to the protests, I’m going to stop by Target real quick, pick up a couple of 12-racks and we’re going to see if we can heal this divide”.
The best part of the video can be seen here, when Gesualdi dives into a full blown fight between a leftist activist and a Trump supporter with a can of Pepsi. “I got to get in there!” he says to the camera before attempting to give the unruly rioters the can without getting walloped himself:
If the Black Lives Matter movement were led by a 21-year-old white supermodel armed with a can of fizzy soda, then maybe everyone would just get along. It’s not clear what the smiling, attractive demonstrators are upset about, the only clues being their placards reading “peace” and “love” and “join the conversation.”
And here’s the actual commercial, in all it’s stupid nonsensical glory.
