Twitter Users Slam Pepsi Soda Ad That Promotes COVID-19 Testing Site

A Pepsi-sponsored poster promoting a COVID-19 testing site at a Walmart in Orlando, Florida, is leaving a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths.

That’s because the poster prominently features Pepsi branding including the soda’s current motto, “That’s what I like.”

But a lot of people apparently didn’t like it, based on the Twitter reaction to this photo of the poster:

Although there is value in letting people know where they can get tested, Pepsi’s insistence on corporate branding left many people feeling as flat as a soda set out in the sun for two hours.

One person snarkily rewrote the poster to make it more accurate.

Others feared it might be the start of a trend.

Some were confused by the poster’s wording.

Others found the poster ominous for other reasons.

But at least one person joked the brand messaging was appropriate.

Pepsico and Walmart did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
