Worst: Pepsi - Elton John, Melanie Amaro and Pepsi for All
Elton John may want to yell at his manager for convincing him to do this one. This Super Bowl commercial casts him as the bad guy (a catty King) who sends one potential court entertainer after another to the dungeon. When "X-Factor" winner Melanie Amaro (don't worry, most people have no idea who she is either) shows up and sings a dance music version of "Respect" John gets off his thrown and gives her a Pepsi. Somehow, he's then punished for recognizing her talent and falls into his own dungeon where Flavor Flav is already situated and laughs at him. Yeah, not sure this is going to convince anyone to drink Pepsi, buy an Amaro single or see John in concert. At least they got paid, right?
