Media of the Week - Oh Africa

Pin It Like a fireworks display for the eyes and ears…



This commercial was originally created by Pepsi for their new campaign, Refresh Your World. Their main purpose was to help enable youth to make a positive change in the world. It not only has 16 global artists and 6 soccer superstars, but also Akon and Keri Hilson.

This, my friends, is art.

Awesome video! My only disappointment is that no female soccer stars were enlisted. Mia Hamm could have rocked it royally. :) But... still a vibrant thing to watch. Thanks!

I just finished a book about an African woman who was kidnapped and sold into slavery. Her life story and her yearning to return back to her Africa. Makes this all the more poignant.

Very cool video.

There is a booth at the farmer's market. It is some young men from Africa selling some very colorful cloths to wear. You know me. COLOR! I'm there. I bought one. These boys are a kick. There are a few booths there from Africa. Very cool stuff.

How. Freakin'. COOL!

I need to figure out how to get to it on my school computer so I can show to my kids on the big screen once school starts.
