Inspired by the spirit of New Orleans, the space will include Mardi Gras-style decorations with music, entertainment and product sampling. Fans can practice their quarterback skills with a "Throw Like Drew (Brees)" football toss, with a donation being made to charity based on total passing yards. The donation, totaling $25,000, will benefit two local New Orleans charities - Drew Brees' "The Brees Dream Foundation," which will use the funds to support its Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts; and The Trombone Shorty Academy, a music education program for underserved New Orleans high school students at Tulane University, that will use the donation to purchase new instruments for the students that they would otherwise not be able to afford. Pepsi will also be giving fans a chance to create their own Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show. Consumers will be allowed to select their song choice, stage, production elements, and dancers and take the stage like they are performing in front of millions watching the game. Afterwards they'll be able to share with family and friends and enter for a chance to win Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show field passes.
