Pepsi MAX Popstars: Didier Drogba, Sergio Aguero, Fernando Torres, Leo Messi, Frank Lampard & Jack Wilshere

Click on the photos for extreme close ups of Fernando and Leo’s chin pubes.

Pepsi MAX’s latest commercial features a bunch of hot footballers surfing their way across a crowded arena to a bangin’ soundtrack supplied by the surprisingly cute Calvin Harris.

The players were obviously selected to specifically engage with our own, very niche demographic seeing as Fernando Torres, Sergio Aguero, Frankie Lampard, Didier Drogba, Jack Wilshere and Leo Messi were the boys the carbonated beverage brand chose to feature.

Upon watching, it’s clear Pepsi MAX was adamant on surpassing the success of our originally formed boyband from ’09. Yes, this charismatic crew are the reunited NKOTBSB to our disbanded N’Sync. Some of this year’s talent may be farther over the hill than others, but we don’t care because we love them and the wardrobe department’s equal allocation of v-neck and crew neck t-shirts all the same.

While we’re very much ok with the casting, if we had our way the outcome would have been vastly different. Imagine if there had been a break away unit of hardline Kickette Soldier Boys & Girls present in the building – the chance of those pretties getting anywhere near that damn stage would’ve been zilch.

Your turn in the director’s seat, Kickettes! How would you instruct the Pepsi MAX boybanders gone wild to stand, pose, pout, etc?

    I don't drink soda but I enjoyed it

    Had me giggling like an idiot! Leo!!!! :'D

  3. Laura says:

    Messi is seriously adorable in that commercial!

  4. Mariella says:

    I like!!

  5. FloraJane says:

    Frank and Didier looked hot!! Actually, I don't mind looking at any of them! I thought the whole thing was quite cute.

  6. lamama says:

    Everytime i read the title to this post I read 'pornstars' and not 'popstars'. That pretty much sums it up for me.

  7. Nienke says:

    Can't get over Messi cruising around on that vending machine. It's hilarious.

  8. Kristina says:

    The winner takes it all! That's a perfect, and logical, ending of the video. But if I where the director I would at least incorporate one scene where Fernando get his trousers pulled off him from underneath. Then someone else could relieve him from the rest of the clothing. That would have been interesting. And I would buy myself a Pepsi.

  9. Kristina says:

    And none from RM.

  10. Rosie says:

    How would we direct them to stand, etc.? Do you really have to ask this, Kickette? Obviously, whatever we would direct them to do would not involve clothing . . . And this commercial would only be eligible to air on the "special" channels.

  11. Marian says:

    Although I love Jack, I agree that Robin would've been more fitting. Also, are there no players from Man U cute enough to be included? Haha. Poor them. And three from Chelsea? Wow. Might as well be a Chelsea advert.

  12. Agnes Wonka says:

    They are a cool bunch of players!

  13. Mrs_Q_Borri says:

    El Niño! that's the only thing I could say when watching it…

  14. littlegreenpea says:

    CALVIN. HARRIS. He makes everything better. :) As for the commercial, I thought it was enjoyable.

  15. Utd Girl says:

    They all look fab, but mmm Nando ;) I have never found Messi attractive, but recently, he’s looked pretty damn good! It’s too bad half of them are Chelsea players though. Would’ve preferred a variation…

  16. Natalie says:

    Interesting end, a Barcelona player is stealing the machine from all of them. Sounds familiar

  17. Thea says:

    Life long coke devotee – may now have to switch brands!

  18. hereforthenando says:

    If I were the director, they wouldn't be crossing a sea of people to get to a Pepsi machine… they would all be fighting to get to me. In the end, instead of Messi carrying me away and sitting on me, I think that they would all win.

  19. Ahwell says:

    I've gotta be the only one here who thinks that despite the fab footballers, this ad is really, really bad and kinda dumb to boot.

    • April says:

      Have you seen Pepsi's other footie ads? I love Pepsi, but ads like these make me happy that football isn't as big in America. The amount of cringe-inducing cheese coming from that video and some of the others is just… wow. At least it's pretty hilarious, so I'm going to pretend it was meant as some sort of awkward comedy :)

    • Juliette says:

      Here, here. I was reading all the previous post and thought I would be the only one who thought the commercial was absolutely dreadful. All those top footballers signed up for that ad and pepsi came up with such rubbish?

  20. IrishBlue says:

    I quite liked that! Maybe would have swapped Jack for RVP if we were looking for an Arsenal representative but all in all, nice!

    Apart from Torres' hair….I just can't bring myself to like it.

  21. Miss Lampard says:

    Please the next video needs absolutely to be without shirt…Ferni and Frankie are so hot, and Lio is unexpectedly sexy..X_X

  22. Marian says:

    While I love Jack,I think perhaps Robin would’ve been more fitting? Also, is there no one cute enough to include from Man U? They thought Chelsea was pretty cute. 3 players!

  23. April says:

    I like the fans in the background. And the two men that are clearly impressed by Torres. Then there seems to be a distant gazer for Messi off to the right.

  24. Doles says:

    If I were the director, every single one of players will be taking off their shirt in the end, the drink pepsi, and pepsi will drizzle down their neck, gorgeous abs… etc. ;)

  25. Carolina says:

    I wonder how long it took to shoot.
