“At PepsiCo, music is a key way for us to connect with our fans, and we know that music lovers in Malaysia have been missing the concert experience for over a year due to the pandemic. So, we decided to bring them the first-ever Augmented Reality Concert in Malaysia – something that has never been done before in Malaysia yet it is very much in line with our bold personality and pioneering nature. 
 
“In particular, we are drawing upon the bold taste of Pepsi Black and its spirit of challenging the norm by making this exclusive concert content only accessible to consumers of Pepsi Black Raspberry – our exciting new cola flavour offering a bold taste and no calories,” said Salman Butt, Senior Marketing Director APAC of PepsiCo.

In the #PepsiBoldTalent audition challenge, the trio’s talents shone and stood out in a pool of over 3,000 audition videos, where their entries attracted the highest number of engagements, enabling them to emerge as winners in the #PepsiBoldTalent competition.

“We wanted to thank our loyal Malaysian fans by creating a really special experience for them, and what could be a better way than elevating homegrown Malaysian talents and offering them a platform to showcase their bold spirit and brave determination. 
 
“This groundbreaking Augmented Reality Concert highlights the best of our local talents and opens up a new avenue for Malaysians to express themselves and achieve their dreams, reflecting Pepsi’s aim of championing the bold and brave generation of today, and continuing to bring excitement and new experiences to consumers in Malaysia,” commented Jennifer Lee, Beverage Marketing Lead of PepsiCo.
