Awesome comercial. The comercial is a bit before my time, but in the 70's I remember Pepsi having Tom Sawyer's Island (Mountian Dew from Fort Wilderness!), and Sponsering Country Bears, and Golden Horseshoe. Coke's stronghold was Coke Corner on Main Street. Disneyland was like a battle ground in the great cola wars.
Up until 1982 both Pepsi and Coke were served in Disneyland. Pepsi-Cola sponsored the Golden Horseshoe at the same time Coca-Cola sponsored Tomorrowland Terrace and Refreshment Corner. Even today my elderly aunt refers to the Golden Horsehoe as "The Pepsi show" because the Pepsi logo was hanging prominently out front for the first 27 years. (Shows you how powerful a sponsor can be over the long term. I still buy Goodyear tires just because I enjoyed riding the PeopleMover so much.)
Pepsi-Cola also sponsored the Country Bear Jamboree when it opened in 1971 at WDW. That's why during the introduction to the show Henry the bear says "You've got a lot to live, and the Country Bears have a lot to give!". That was a purposeful nod to the big Pepsi jingle from the early 1970's that went "You've got a lot to live, and Pepsi's got a lot to give!".
I was in the Park the days that commercial was being filmed! I remember it very well. Fairly small crew compared to these days, but several suit and tie Madison Avenue advertising execs standing around rubbing their chins and nodding.
Thanks for the great link! Wow...how times have changed. That was not too long before the Summer of Love. Interesting how jazz oriented the jingles were back before rock and pop and we know it today took over.
This had to be just a few years before...
"I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony.
I'd like to hold it in my arms
and keep it company....."
And I completely forgot that Pepsi had ANYTHING to do with Disneyland back then. Thanks Onut!
