Back to the Future Fans: Pepsi Perfect is Coming
The soft drink featured in the 1980s classic is coming to a store near you--just in time for the date featured in the movie.
October 21, 2015 is the future. Well, it was in Back to the Future II, and now that October 21, 2015 is about to be the present, Pepsi is commemorating the date by releasing Pepsi Perfect, the vitamin-rich soda the company placed in the movie. Here's the commercial they've rolled out:
