Pepsi and Coca-Cola Are Doing Two Completely Different Things on TV During Super Bowl

One company is focusing on soda, one isn't.

Talk about two opposing marketing plans. 

With consumers continuing to shun traditional sugary soda, PepsiCo (PEP) - Get Report  is only advertising its zero-sugar beverages -- such as its new zero-sugar soda -- during the Super Bowl. It marks the first time ever that PepsiCo hasn't advertised its regular full-calorie beverage during the big game.

Additionally, the company has taken to the airwaves to promote its new premium water called Lifewtr.

Meanwhile, rival Coca-Cola (KO) - Get Report has only run ads during the Super Bowl focused on full-calorie soda.
