In tests like these nationwide, more people chose pepsi over coca-cola.

Is nice and smooth and taste is good.

Take the pepsi challenge.

Let your taste buds decide.

I love that.

If only commercials today could be that good.

The pepsi challenge has been around since the 1970s and it is something that are guest host john scully knew about.

Were you involved in creating the pepsi taste challenge?

I was a part of it.

We had a great team.

I will tell you the back story on it.

We started in san antonio, texas where we were sold out 9-1 by coca cola peer you are being outsold 9-1 by coca cola.

) we came up with this idea of why don't we go out and capture the expression on the face of people who never even thought of having a pepsi.

He discovered that they did not pick the coke.

They picked pepsi.

We are going to do a surprise taste test.

Why don't you do that, my friend, john, take the challenge today.

We just need to get serious for a second.


The famous red specs.

They have been written about in the blog.

They have.

I want to be a team player and get a tear of my own.

My red specs are not in my drawer today because my kids have it.

Here we go.


hold on, cheers.

We are starting with x. bring it.

Hey, good luck.

What do you do if you don't know your product?

Ok, good luck.

Ok, here good.

I think i know.


Here we go.

I think i know, john.

Gosh, no, i don't know.

Pepsi, coke.

X is pepsi?

I was going to say x is coke.

John is right.

The man knew his product.

How many times have you done that?

Here's the interesting thing.

I went out to honolulu to launch the pepsi challenge and i was being interviewed and they were asking me to describe what it was and the lady who was interviewing me said why don't you take the pepsi challenge.

I did and i lost on television.

Or chile, this was before cable television.

So only the people in honolulu sought -- fortunately, this was before cable television.

So only the people in honolulu saw it.
