By now we’ve all seen and heard about the complete and utter fail that was a Pepsi commercial starring Kendall Jenner. The tone-deaf, ball-dropped attempt at making world peace with a Pepsi got ripped to shreds by Twitter users, and Pepsi ultimately pulled the ad from the internet and halted future circulation of the commercial.

Even still, think pieces are being produced and mockery of the fail is STILL making waves on the ‘net. Case and point: a protester/journalist in Portland, Oregon who went to a city hall meeting and handed the Mayor a Pepsi. Unlike Kendall Jenner, protester/journalist  Carlos Enrique was not successful in making peace. In fact, he was accused of disturbing it, with Mayor Ted Wheeler saying “Whoa, whoa, whoa, not a good move.”

They then had Enrique removed from the meeting, with Wheeler saying: “If this were the Boston City Council, that would have ended differently,”


Welp. Looks like a Pepsi can’t change the world after all.


Check out the footage of the entire encounter below (Enrique enters the scene around the 2:50:50 mark).
