    mmmm, soda pop...

    Too bad it can't be a promotion of something that works with a healthy lifestyle. Oh well, at least the dentists will be happy!

    um, it's America..

    Don't even throw Atkins my way, since when as America been health conscious? Besides, I can't imagine "get a free song with every bottle of slimfast" working too well. iTunes is a (despite said demographic status), a kids online download program and as such, it's reflected by the drinks they chose to market with. Considering the # of Serria Mist drinkers I know, I'll have another 10 days of free tunes. My buddies whon played last year will also have an iTunes account and an iMac to play with this year!

    Ugh! You actually know people who drink that piss-water? Amazing!

    And America has always been health conscious! Of course, heaven forbid they just have a normal diet and a little exercise. Nope, they overindulge, then look for some magical cure (Atkins, for one), and buy those machines that promise you weightloss and 6-pack abs (or something like that) requiring only 8 minutes a day. Or that wacky Suzanne Somers device. Or any of those 18 other deals they see while sitting on their asses watching late-night infomercials! [And just for full disclosure, I'm one of those people! Although I'm too cheap to buy any of those devices, but h***, give me a diet-fad of the week, and I'm in! Right after I splurge for a couple of months on doughnuts. Mmmmmm, doughnuts.]

    Problem w/ last year

    I looked everywhere for those pepsi bottles with the promotion caps, but could never find them. I think I know of one person who bought a Pepsi bottle with one of those caps (of course it was from a place that is no where near where I live). Of course they won, but since they didn't know care about iTunes they gave the free song to me.

    I'm just hoping Pepsi gets those bottles with the caps out faster this time rather than delaying them to the point where they are useless.

    Sounds good..

    Glad to hear, I have a caffiene addiction problem with drinking Mountain Dew, and I am glad they are including that drink now. I love free songs!
