Oh Pepsi Perfect… You plague fans!
If you were up at 9:00 a.m. ET to try and snag one of the Pepsi Perfect bottles that went on-sale today you might have seen a screen that looked like this on the Pepsi sale page.
Why is that? Because the Pepsi page was on overload. Yes, even though they did this once before and even though they got roasted on social media enough so that they were almost forced to create another 6500 bottles, Pepsi still botched it up.
Fans are more angry than before and add to the fact that no one outside of the U.S. could snag a limited edition bottle… The results were pretty maddening.
There was a version of the bottle released in select Mexico theaters and I believe Argentina as well.
Now, I was lucky enough to snag one, but only because someone on twitter posted the link and I grabbed it as the Pepsi site was loading. I used one click shipping and damn near fell out of my chair once I realized I got one!
Still… For many it was another disaster… Check out these tweets.
As far as I know, Pepsi said they have no plans to issue more Pepsi Perfect and this was it.
Personally, if you see such a demand, I don’t understand why Pepsi just didn’t have a pre-order window. Just say, whoever pre-orders a bottle from 9:00 ET to 10 a.m. ET will get one. Then if you missed the window it’s on you and not the brand. Clearly they have to manufacture more because this batch won’t ship until after 12-26-15!
Just my two cents.
If you scored a bottle today congrats!
If not, I’m sure @Pepsi will hear about it.
