Pepsi has taken more angles in trying to defeat Coca Cola than Ashton Kutcher with a camera in all those photo ads.

Well, it took Santa Claus to do it but Pepsi finally “outcooled” Coke, at least for this summer.

The TV spot with Santa and Mrs. Claus dancing and him slyly asking the bartender for Pepsi instead of Coke is “bad” in a good way.

“I want to have a little fun,” Santa explains quietly and with a “shoosh”.

Those blasted see-it all elves catch it though, and they too know how cool Santa is.

In the winter, everyone knows Santa Claus drinks Coca Cola … heck, it’s even on the can for cryin’ out loud.

But in the summer he loosens up and downs a Pepsi or two.

(Santa must have found some kind of “Claus” in his contract that said it was OK to drink Pepsi … sorry, I just had to.)

Brilliant ad, and it got to me too. I’m not much for Santa and I’m more of a buttoned-down Coca Cola guy myself.

Don’t tell anyone, but I just cracked open a TWO-LITER bottle of Pepsi!

Do I know how to par-tee or what?
