DROID Makes Pepsi Max Appearance

After seeing the Droid 1 hit “out of stock” status online, we decided we needed more of it on such a sad day.  Even after being on the market for 9 months, we’re still seeing cameos of our original beloved one in commercials and TV shows including this new Pepsi Max spot…

Cheers Sonny and Chris!

    How nice not to see an iPhone.

    This looks like a newer/easier way to do it. I've been rooted for a long time, so i couldn't tell you much about this process, but if you go back further in the blog under the rooting sections you'll see it's been posted quite a few times how to root. B4 seeing this easy-root thing it was a more complicated process of flashing your phone back to an old stock image b4 you could do anything.

    hope this helps.

  • Erik

    Ahhh, Pepsi Max. My favorite beverage in the entire world…minus Monster.

    It's also the lead character's phone in The Glades!

    Off-topic: While this is an anecdote, I think it says a lot about Droid owners vs other uh hum… phones. I was on two flights yesterday. On flight #1, a guy sitting next to me held his LiePhone next to his ear for nearly the entire flight while listening to music via the external speaker. I was listening to Droidcasts (btw: where's the Droid-Life Droidcast) via headphones. Had I not had headphones, he and I would have likely gotten sideways.
    On flight #2, the guy next to me saw me pull out my Droid, and told me that he had an Droid Incredible waiting for him when he got home. He then said, “I know it's kinda of geeky, (while pulling a sheet of paper out his pocket) but I've got a list here of all the apps I'm going to download.” We had nice conversation about Droids and (of course) I told him about this site. Cool dude.

    So… what's the point of the this story? LiePhone owners are very annoying. Droid owners are cool!

  • Jeaniekim

    i know this doesnt have anything to do with this current post but..

    i rooted w/ easy root… and got a custom rom.. etc.

    on the app “quadrant”, my numbers are in the thousands, my videos load fast, my downloads are speedy.. BUT

    my phone LAGS. when i open my app drawer it takes so long to load, when i click home my home screen takes SO long to load.. its slower than even before i rooted. WHY? am i supposed to do something with setpcu to overclock?? though.. i still dont understand what overclocking is… but i did set my battery profile to what kellex did in his demonstration. anyways.. i am currently on the newest cyanogen rom from rom manager.

    it would be SO awesome if someone could respond and help me understand my problem. please. thank you.

    • lakerzz

      Try using launcher pro (its a home replacement)

  • Cougz09

    i love how in the picture, it says that the droid is connected to usb and is charging lol.

    ahh a flaw in the commercial, but none the less glad to see it!

    DROID ftw.

  • Rob D,

    I noticed the original Droid popped up on the show “Castle”. I don't usually watch the show. Not that it's not interesting but I just never started watching it. Anyway I caught and episode the other week and the FBI lady used it to snap a photo of some evidence and send it to the lab. Not sure which episode it was but it was where the lead female character exploded at the end.

  • bryan

    help, i downloaded my first cyanogenmod 6 and hit ok to back up rom I know have a ! on the screen is everything ok

      maybe but who could pass up a great commercial like that one

      • Am0795

        I LOVE HOW PEPSI GETS THROWN OUT OF THE WINDOW

  • Justin

    My D1 drinks
    Coke
    and pisses
    Pepsi

    • Tom

      By that logic, the Droid is related to Chuck Norris, is Chuck Norris, or was somehow created by Chuck Norris. But knowing Chuck Norris, it is probably all three.

    Very choppy video, D1 manual 2.2 update w/flash

  • Potterdood

    I figured it was a Droid 2, with some photoshop!

  • Am0795

    OMG, i saw that so many times, but never noticed it was a droid.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001189473993 Al Melara

  • k1ng617

  • Mrpicolas
  • DgDeBx

    I have that exact same case on my Droid. lol

    • trumpet444

      Same as mine too, I think. Isnt that a Body Glove case? Mine is crapping out after 3 months of use. And I'm very easy on my phones

  • Nightfox981

    They really started fighting because the Pepsi Zero guy was jealous the Pepsi Zero Max guy had a Droid while he was stuck with an iPhone ;)

    • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

      Cocacola zero, not pepsi

  • xmetl

    it says its plugged into USB and charging but i see no usb cable on that droid, and that is not the camera app we all know from the droid

  • Kswallace87

    He is running the FRG01B, He got the Wifi on too. Maybe he is running the tether that they say the Droid1 cant suport!

  • AnDroidSepTIX

    No photoshop thats the DROID 3 reads your thoughts to perform operations.

  • ai3rocks57

    Well, the main character on the A&E show “Glades” uses an un-photoshopped Droid (complete with Motorola logo)

  • nick

    oh its wireless usb connection and usb debugging is on oh and also they try to hid that its android

  • http://twitter.com/andrewtrin Andrew Trin

    lmfao notice that they totally photoshopped the screen? it's missing the typical android touch buttons! :P

    • MMM770

      and the battery is charging!

    • sdierks

      Don't forget USB plugged in with debugging turned on.

      • http://twitter.com/andrewtrin Andrew Trin

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1618095147 David Abarca

        What's debugging??. I remeber when flas first started coming out u had to put that into ur browser… do I still have to do that?.. running bb v04

        • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

          No. Debugging is for the usb.

    • eddieonofre

  • AndroidAddict

    I know this is dumb, but FIRST!

    • http://dr.zombine.com Dr. Zombine

      Yes, it is.

      • AndroidAddict

        I had to do it at least once.

        • http://dr.zombine.com Dr. Zombine

          If only every reader did it just once, then it would be okay, right?

          • AndroidAddict

            I agree.

          • Baked14

            me too

          • http://twitter.com/alexston Alex Stone

            Just say “no” to First.

    • The_Other_Ray

      Yeah, but I'm sure you felt pretty excited when you saw that no one had commented yet.
