The real story in the Pepsi protest ad controversy (http://wapo.st/2nXHry4), to me anyway, is how Pepsi has always tried to position itself as the "counter-cultural" soda. In "The Attention Merchants," Tim Wu talks about how Pepsi ran ads in the 60's featuring hippies, with the slogan "you're in the Pepsi Generation." Then in the 80's there were the Micheal Jackson ads, back when he was still a bit controversial as MTV's first black artist. New decade, same strategy.
