King of Soda Pop

Michael Jackson featured on new Pepsi cans


The King of Pop rules again. Michael Jackson is depicted on new cans of Pepsi and Diet Pepsi, part of a limited-edition series that also features Ray Charles and Britney Spears.

The red, white and blue design was unveiled today and can be seen on Jackson's Twitter account.

The retro series is part of the soda maker's promotional campaign for summer, dubbed #PepsiGenerations.

Back in 1984, Jackson made headlines when his hair caught fire while filming a Pepsi ad. He was also featured in a 2012 Pepsi campaign that coincided with the "Bad" album's 25th anniversary.

Jackson was 50 when he died in 2009.
