Pepsi announces the return of Pepsi-Cola Soda Shop, a modern take on classic soda shop flavors, with a new limited-edition flavor – Zero Sugar Cream Soda Cola – joining the popular Cream Soda and Black Cherry flavors also returning for a limited time. To celebrate, Pepsi teamed up with global superstar Chlöe Bailey to remake and reimagine “Footloose,” the classic and iconic title track to the classic 1984 Paramount Pictures film.
Pepsi & Chlöe’s re-imagination of “Footloose” is grounded in the original track but features new instrumental and vocal twists unique to Chlöe’s instantly recognizable R&B/Pop style. The story behind the track is also brought to life in the music video-style spot – directed by award-winning director Hannah Luxe Davis and choreographed by award-winning industry icon Sean Bankhead – in which Chlöe plays the main character in a modern take on the classic “Footloose” film storyline. As she steps into a quiet diner in a town that bans self-expression like singing and dancing, Chlöe quickly wins over hesitant patrons and convinces them to let loose and unapologetically share their best moves for the world to see, all with the smooth taste of Pepsi-Cola Soda Shop.
“Pepsi-Cola Soda Shop is a unique take on the indulgent and nostalgic flavors that harken back to the early days of cola, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring this product back for another year – this time with a delicious Zero Sugar Cream Soda Cola flavor as well,” said Todd Kaplan, Chief Marketing Officer – Pepsi. “To celebrate this ‘Modern Take on a Classic,’ we thought that Chlöe was the perfect musician to work with to reimagine the iconic classic song ‘Footloose’ with this unapologetically fun music video. Pepsi & Chlöe’s “Footloose” video will be available for viewing on the Pepsi brand’s YouTube and social channels.
The limited-edition Pepsi-Cola Soda Shop in Cream Soda, Black Cherry and Zero Sugar Cream Soda Cola flavors is available at retailers nationwide now. Available in 20 oz bottles and 12 oz cans, Pepsi-Cola Soda Shop will be a seasonal addition to the growing roster of Pepsi offerings anywhere Pepsi products are sold.
