“We wanted to encourage friends to practice social distancing and celebrate virtually!”

Beverage Brand, Pepsi pays a tribute to friends across the nation by launching a special piece of content in collaboration with popular singer Knox Artiste.

The song is built on an insight wherein the brand conducted a poll and found that in current times, 87% consumers are missing their friends immensely while at home. The poll results also reflected that 78% people believe that friends contribute to their happiness. Therefore, the foot tapping tribute encourages people to up their Swag level this Friendship Day and mark this occasion by connecting virtually with their loved ones, the company said in a press statement.

“Through this special content, Pepsi aims at encouraging consumers to celebrate one of the most beautiful emotion of friendship virtually with swag. We are confident that Knox Artiste’s riveting music will have people across the nation want to connect this Friendship Day and set up a virtual party with friends that they’ve missed spending time with for so long.”
