PURCHASE, N.Y., Feb. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pepsi unveiled the first-ever crowd-sourced Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show introduction, which starred hundreds of real fans from around the country by using a unique editing technique called " object replacement animation."  The first-of-its-kind video used more than 500 frames of beautiful, high-definition photos submitted by real Pepsi and Beyonce fans, which were submitted over the past 4 weeks.  The video, which aired on CBS tonight in front of more than 100 million viewers, welcomed Beyonce to the stage for the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show in a way that only Pepsi could deliver, creating a true "Live for Now" moment.
