WHO CAN TRANSLATE?
BAD 25 NEW YORK MUSIC FESTIVAL??
I asked the Estate about Mexico design and New York music festival
Yes, these are the 3 can designs created (the second image in the JPEG is the back of each of the cans, it is not a separate can design). Each Pepsi market had the option of using whichever of the 3 designs they wanted. China, like the US, used only 1 design, other markets may elect to use 1 or more of the 3 designs. Mexico obviously opted for all 3.
There are also live events, e.g., flash mobs, etc., being done by different markets. In the US, they are planning a live event as well, but there is no “music festival”.

Meanwhile here in Brazil, no notice about the commemorative cans :/
Thanks for that info Mkgenie.
Wow if those cans are so rare now, imagine how it'll be in the future
(thanks to mkgenie for the heads up and international fans with the information help)
Turkey is the third country to get special edition Pepsi MJ Cans. The cans are the regular 330 ml size and has the same design as the US and China cans. However the cans have a notice about a local contest on them as well. Pepsi Turkey promotion runs between June 22nd and July 15th.
Pepsi is also running a TV ad to announce the competition in Turkey as well as introduce the Bad 25 anniversary release.
The ad mentions a contest with a chance to win a trip to the celebration of MJ's music in New York for 25th Anniversary of Bad album. Earlier translations wrongly stated it was a "festival", however the correct translation is just "celebration".
The contest requires people either to send special codes that can be found on Pepsi items or send a video of themselves dancing like Michael Jackson
The voice over in the ad says
"To honor the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson's Bad album, Pepsi drinkers are going to New York. Send your Pepsi passcode to 7516 (screen says with your name and address information) or if you say "I can dance like Michael Jackson" upload your video to Pepsi (Turkey) facebook page and win a chance to attend to the Michael Jackson music celebration in New York"
The end of the ad shows Bad 25 album with the notice "In stores 18.9.2012". the twitter hashtag #popunkralimichaeljackson is Turkish translation of "King of Pop Michael Jackson"
The rules state that the trip is 4 days, 3 nights and between August 28 and August 31st. Assuming August 28 and August 31 is the travel dates, logically it leaves the concert to be either on August 29 or August 30th.
Turkish fans also report that a major retailer chain is giving free MJ Pepsi t-shirt with purchase of multiple Pepsi products. The t-shirt seems to be darker in color than the China version although it might be just a light difference.
That shirt looks great! Are they going to have T-shirts for the USA promotion? We haven't gotten much love from Pepsi during this campaign so far but I'm hoping they will turn it around as we get closer to this New York celebration.
I know this will sound bad but I feel like left out of all this. None of this is coming to where I live. I know it is starting in certain places but it should be all over for the fans. I am looking forward to Bad 25 and I know that is coming.
What concert in NY are they referring to, I wonder. All I know of is the Spike Lee thing but that's not really a concert.
Pepsi, Wal-Mart, and 103.3 KISS FM are teaming up to giveaway an amazing trip to New York to see Michael Jackson live in concert August 28-30th!
Swing by any of these 6 Wal-Mart locations, look for the Pepsi display and find the short code to text and you will be in to win!
