Pepsi Ad Uses Kids Sued By The RIAA

from the interesting... dept

Well, we're approaching Super Bowl time, and I'm seeing plenty of articles (as always) about all the funky Super Bowl ads that people are preparing. However, Pepsi has put together one of the odder ones. As part of their promotion to give away iTunes songs, they've put together an ad showing a bunch of kids that have been sued by the RIAA for file sharing, and had them say "we're still going to download for free!" - thanks to Pepsi's limited time iTunes promotion, of course.

    No Subject Given

    Your title implies that the *ad* was sued by the RIAA.

    "Pepsi ad uses kids sued by RIAA " is what you meant.

    Yeah, that's much better. Thanks, I've changed it.

    Excellent, Mike -- it was a dangling participle.

    Javaguy should visit:

    to understand why it shouldn't sound right
