Pepsi Next – Taste Challenge

We took the classic Pepsi Taste Challenge beyond the streets – to social networks, online videos, even TV and outdoor and created the Pepsi Next Taste Challenge.


In Summer 2013/14 we took the Pepsi Next Taste Challenge to the road and invited Australia to choose their preferred cola. Our goal was to reach a much broader audience by amplifying the powerful product experience of the Taste Challenge via social, online video and ATL.


PLAY not only activated over 100 events across the country, but also delivered across all other creative, including TVCs, Outdoor, Digital and Social Media.
