Extends Fan Experience by Offering Full Halftime Show Online

PURCHASE, NY, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Pepsi unveiled the first-ever crowd-sourced Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show introduction, which starred hundreds of real fans from around the U.S. 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 Beyoncé fans, which were submitted over the past 4 weeks.  The video, which aired on CTV in Canada, welcomed Beyoncé 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.

In addition, Pepsi will extend the Super Bowl fan experience online and for the first time ever, the entire halftime performance is available at www.pepsi.com and will remain on the site for one month. Fans who want to get a closer look at the fast-paced Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show introduction can view a special frame-by-frame version of the video at www.pepsi.com/halftime.

"Pepsi is thrilled with the overwhelming response and engagement of our fans in creating this year's introduction video," said Angelique Krembs, Vice President of Marketing, Pepsi. "We wanted to say thank you to all our fans by sharing these great performances with them online. We look forward to once again offering fans the chance to get closer than ever to all of the action."

Pepsi and Beyoncé invited fans to help make this year's Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show one of the most memorable and compelling shows ever.  Pepsi received more than 120,000 submissions from consumers in hopes of being selected, and chose hundreds of photos for the introduction.  The video was created for Pepsi by Mekanism ( San Francisco and New York).
