Pepsi's Challenge: New Show Review

Indra Niyoo CEO of Pepsico

This morning I was watching “Squawk on the Street” CNBC for my favorite Asian Businessperson, Melissa Lee. I wanted to find out if she was wearing boots today.

Moreover, I noticed there was a preview for a new show that premiered tonight called “Pepsi’s Challenge.”

The challenge is to see if PepsiCo can take over the world more or less.

I had to catch the first episode.

I caught a soundbyte from the CEO talking about Pepsi’s enormous goals with business expansion and making all products in the markets PepsiCo products, making every product available a PepsiCo product. PepsiCo is the hybrid combination of Pepsi and Frito-Lay, as well as other components such as Quaker.

So this new show will follow PepsiCo’s plans to conquer the globe. Google and Facebook have proven that a single company can control every aspect of our lives, so why can’t Pepsi control the world? Well, as for the show’s premiere, their presentation was not exciting. They presented a bland and mild approach to selling their show, and the overall storytelling was not something was super entertaining to watch.

It’s always fascinating to hear and think about how the mechanics of corporatism and individual companies can grow and capture financial wealth and widespread impact on human life.

Pepsi is launching plans to single-handedly take over the marketplace of Planet Earth, and this show did very little to make that exciting. Furthermore, there were not enough hot bitches in it. (My integrity fades so fast).

I love that the CEO is a woman from India, Indra Nooyi, for it is a great example that nothing is off limits for any woman in the workplace.

Very exciting ideas. Not a very exciting show.
"Pepsi's Challenge" airs on CNBC at at your locally listed time.

What the hell is this?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
