Watch 'SNL' Spoof Kendall Jenner's 'Tone-Deaf' Pepsi Ad

Posted April 10, 2017

The hokey restaging of recent political history - including protest signs reading "Join the Conversation"- was instantly attacked on the Internet for its insensitivity, specifically to the Black Lives Matter movement. We also learned that Kendall's been leaning on self-help guru, Tony Robbins, 57, following her controversial career speed bump.

Much like Pepsi's original doubling down on its clueless stance by releasing a defensive statement, SNL's Beck Bennett plays the commercials fictitious director and fiercely defended his vision while describing the doomed commercial to his sister.

Kendall Jenner's disastrous Pepsi ad didn't just offend the nation with its appropriation of Black Lives Matter protest imagery to sell soda, it has left San Francisco police wondering if certain legal lines were crossed, according to TMZ. Pepsi's alignment with Jenner for this spot was likely created to breathe new life into the brand by making it relevant to a new generation of consumers - many of whom identity with Kendall Jenner's persona and aspire to be like her. Jenner then hands a can of Pepsi over to a policeman in riot gear which alone seems to solve the objective of the riot and ignites the crowd in Cheers.

Meanwhile, Pepsi on Wednesday pulled an ad after it was widely mocked and criticised for appearing to trivialise protests for social justice causes. One thing that has seemed a little off is how Jenner has been protected as though she didn't know what she was getting into. And then Kendall Jenner walks in, and she walks up to one of the police officers, and she hands him a Pepsi. And so, everybody is marching, right? "I know! It's cute, right?"

At that scene was evidence of arson, and it appeared that the burglary and vehicle arson events were connected, deputies said. As of Saturday morning local, county, state and national law enforcement are continuing their search for Joseph Jakubowski.

Props to SNL for slamming the Pepsi ad. Watch it above.

"Maybe you just kind of don't get it", he says, and asks to speak with someone else. TMZ says the SFPD never gave Pepsi permission to use their logo.

The over two-minute long "Live for Now Moments" video begins with Jenner in a platinum wig on a photo shoot when a group of protesters marches by. Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize.
