“Don’t even touch it.”
Earlier this week, Pepsi handed us an ad — starring Kendall Jenner — so disastrously tone deaf that it managed to unify pretty much everyone in disbelief.
SNL’s Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney had “answers.”
Beckett played the director of the ad in the skit — the whole thing is from his perspective and his side of a series of phone conversations. First he took a phone call from his sister, Carrie, but couldn’t talk long because they were moments from shooting.
“It was like, completely my idea, and now they're doing it!” he explains.
“I mean, okay, so well it's an homage to the resistance and there's this huge protests in the streets reminiscent of black lives matter. And so, everybody is marching, right? And they can see police officers, and they think it's gonna go bad because there's kind of, like, a standoff. And then, Kendall Jenner walks in, and she walks up to one of the police officers, and she hands him a Pepsi. And then, that Pepsi brings everybody together,” he says.
