SNL spoofs now infamous Kendall Jenner, Pepsi commercial

Kendall Jenner and the controversial Pepsi commercial she recently starred in have been the subject of scrutiny on the Internet all week.

YouTuber Flea Market Socialist shared a video clip that took the latest "Pepsi Generation" misfire and combined it with visuals inspired by the 1988 scifi classic They Live. The Pepsi ad was pulled earlier this week and SNL went behind the scenes as the director struggled to find someone (anyone) to assure him the idea was a good one. They inexplicably erupt into cheers as if the sheer act of giving a cop a dose of high-fructose corn syrup is a major accomplishment. Someone else, "Doug", then explains to the director that he's "using" people of all ethnicities and cultures to "sell soda". The source continued, "The world sees her as this glamorous, sophisticated, jet-setting woman, but she's only 21 and she's very sensitive".

"Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding", the company said. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. "Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologise". And even after apologizing, it drew even more criticism.

The ad follows the reality TV star as she joins a crowd of young people marching by her totally casual street-side photoshoot.

Congress seen as not likely to pass tax overhaul quickly
Republicans will need some form of new revenue, though, if they want to chop tax rates without expanding the deficit. Brady underscored his intention to include a border adjustment tax provision in tax reform legislation, aides said.

In this controversial ad, she stopped a police protest with a can of Pepsi. He begins to tell her how the commercial is a "sort of an homage" to the Black Lives Matter movement, stops abruptly, and says, "Don't even touch it?"

Some online commentators called out the stark differences by posting an image taken by Reuters photographer Jonathan Bachman in Baton Rouge past year showing a Black woman in a dress standing passively as police armed in riot helmets and heavily padded suits took her into custody. People slammed her on social media.

Being new to this kind of public humiliation, Kendall was reminded by Tony to remain thankful despite receiving so much hate for her Pepsi ad.
