Baseball is here. A lot of fans including myself are psyched for another year of watching their favorite team try to make it to the World Series. What if you were surprised by a former player from your favorite team on Opening Day? Well some New York Yankee fans experienced this earlier this month thanks to Pepsi.
Pepsi is celebrating the New York Yankees this season with former Yankee player Johnny Damon and SNL comedian and lifelong Yankees fan Pete Davidson. In an entertaining video, the two take to the streets of New York City on Opening Day to give a few lucky fans a chance to “Earn Their Pinstripes” by dropping everything and riding with them to Yankee stadium.
Fans can also get a chance to “Earn Their Pinstripes” by entering the #EarnYourPinstripesContest. By sharing a photo on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #EarnYourPinstripesContest, fans are entered to win fun prizes including tickets to a game, meet and greets with Joe Girardi and GM Brian Cashman, Yankee gear, a game of catch with Didi Gregorius on the field and more!
Believe it or not choreography is already being finalized for the Super Bowl Halftime Show. With millions of people watching there is a lot of pressure on the dancers. So they will need to be trained by a perfectionist. To do that Pepsi is calling in a specialist.
Not only Pepsi is returning again as sponsor of the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show, but they are bringing fans exciting content and experiences to get them closer to the action. To pay homage to one of the biggest pop-culture moments of the year, Pepsi released the first episode of its new online series “Camp Halftime,” featuring actor/comedian Donald Faison.
In this video, Donald Faison plays head camp counselor Martin Tulane where he hilariously showcases all of the elements that go into producing the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show.
The four-part comedic series, filmed in partnership with The Kicker will continue to rollout every Wednesday leading up to the Super Bowl on Pepsi.com and Youtube.com/Pepsi.
Sammy Watkins just finished up a phenomenal rookie season and along with a stellar defense, is bringing hope back to a weary fan base in Buffalo that is long overdue for a team to be hopeful about. Watkins completed a successful rookie campaign, setting franchise marks for both receptions and yards despite having his starting quarterback benched early in the season and finishing out the year with a solid but unremarkable Kyle Orton.
The Bills gave up quite a bit for the opportunity to move up and select Watkins in the form of two first rounders and a fourth round pick. This along with the successful rookie campaigns of other receivers in what will likely go down as one of the deepest and most talented receiver classes of all time had Watkins coming into the league with even more pressure than usual for first round picks.
Watkins responded by persevering through injuries, quarterback changes, drawing the defenses number one coverage man, and in some cases, entire games of double teams, by repeatedly coming up big for his team when they needed him. His most noteworthy moment according to himself and others was a game winning catch against the Vikings in week seven with the season already on the line with a tough schedule ahead of them.
Sammy sat down with Man Jr. to discuss his transition into the league, the coaching changes and volatility in Buffalo, adjusting to life in his new home, and his work on Pepsi’s Hype Your Hometown contest. Check out the audio below:
