    Default 1984 Pepsi Commercial in 4K

    This guy on Twitter got a hold of the 35mm film reels of the commercial and he did a 4K scan of it.

    Here are a few pictures he posted:

    Estate doesn't need help. They can get Sony or other companies to scan them.

    Well, they seem to be unaware of this.

    Yup, this literally came out of nowhere. What a nice surprise.

    I hope he’ll upload a 4:3 version, too. I’m not a fan of clipping videos to make them 16:9.

    You talked about the short films. They don't need help in scanning those. Thriller has already been scanned in 4K.

    I have the scan and am actively working on it, it's not exactly 4K as it was a positive film and as some may know, positive film compared to negative is lesser quality.

    Unfortunately the crop is from the film, not from the screenshot. If you look down the bottom right of some of the screenshots you'll see the original frame but because this film was probably used in a cinema for a 16:9 film, it's been cropped. Sorry!

    The sarcasm was too subtle? Even with the winky smiley?

    The 35mm film is cropped a little at top and bottom, but it doesn't look like he did that.
    It has extra information on the sides, that is cropped in the 4:3 TV version.

    Maybe this 35mm film is one of the copies that were made for cinemas.
    So what he has there probably isn't THE master film reel.

    Oh, you’re right! I had only noticed the cropping. Good eye.

    You guys are worrying over nothing. Films are meant to be cropped. Almost every film which is in 1080p and 4K is cropped, but it doesn't matter because there's extra information which is irrelevant. Check Thriller 4:3 video on YouTube, you can see the spotlights in the cemetery scene. That's not seen in the 4K remaster. So yeah what I mean is that we are not losing important information, the "cropped" 16:9 video will still look as a true 16:9 HD video.

    There's literally nothing to complain about this great news.

    I don't know exactly where but he said that he will definitely upload it once he gets the sound in.
