Mandy's number 6 on the list ^_^
Great to see that Pepsi ad and That Pepsi Girl still being talked about 4 years later!!
A blog dedicated to the super hot sexy girl in the iTunes Pepsi ads that premiered during the 2005 Super Bowl.
Named “The Asian Audrey Hepburn…who could kick your ass” by the brilliant and famed comic book headliner, Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers, DareDevil), Mandy’s popularity skyrocketed when she was featured in the Pepsi/I-Tunes ad during the 2005 Super Bowl. Within hours, she became known as “the face that launched 1,000 websites” when the internet exploded with over a thousand fan sites, websites, and blogs dedicated to her all around the world. The most famous was thatpepsigirl, which launched within minutes of the commercial’s debut.
Thought you'd like to know and get the word out that Mandy has finally put herself up on MySpace (there was a Fraudulent account that was just taken down recently). It is launched as of today and thought it only fair that you be one of the first to know.
There are a few basic pictures as well as the Pepsi Ad, a kudos to you and your site, as well her Maxim video shoot is pending on the site and should be active soon.
Thanks again for all of your support over the years.
I just put in a search for Mandy Amano in iTunes/podcasts and found this interview of Mandy on a podcast called Framed. It's about filmmaking, but has a great, long interview with Mandy. She sounds so cute!
Thought you might like to know. They have a website http://framedpodcast.com/ where you can download the file, but I got it through the Itunes site here
On this first episode, the guys are visited by That Pepsi Girl, Mandy Amano for a chat about life, independent film and what makes acting fun.
I met her in person this past weekend at Comic Con.... DAMN.... she's even hotter in person than the in the Maxim pics!!! Didn't have the Maxim, so I asked if she could sign my pepsi bottle and she did, took some pics with her, and even got a few comics from her dad. She's sooo hot.... and her dad's comics are pretty cool.

You graced us w/ the wonderful Jessica Chobot for all of us video game nuts, but how about giving some love to the comic fans.
Mandy Amano gained some fame for airing in an iTunes/Pepsi Super Bowl commercial. She sparked an internet blog and has her own website:
Get us an interview IGN!!
You guys should really check out those links. Wow. I might have to make sure not to let Chris get this one. A couple issues of Wizard and I'll be ready for her.
I finally found out her name
It's Mandy Amano. You know, "Pepsi Girl"? Like the girl on the Pepsi-iTunes commercial during the Super Bowl? As with any guy that watched it, I instantly fell in love. My mind switched into stalker mode -- just had to find out more about her! Turns out she already has a popular fan-blog right HERE made by an adoring fan (stupid punk beat me to it). Combined, she only had less than 10 seconds of air-time in the commercial but her impact has been tremendous, and her appeal partly comes from her comic book loving background. Now that I know I have to share her with 10,000,000 other stalkers, it cooled off my passion a bit.
But today, I was sitting at the bus stop just thinking about her and wondering what the odds would be to run into her. I stared around around the corner to see if I could jinx myself to make it come true, but after 10 minutes... nothing. So the bus comes and I'm now in a downtrodden mood. As I clamber up the steps into the empty bus, I look up... and WHoA! There she is! Or at least a look-a-like. She blessed me with a smile but I totally lost my balance (must have blushed too) and all sense of direction as I picked out an inconspicuous seat -- not too far away but not too close. As (un)fortune would have it, a fat lady sat in between us and blocked my view. But that's ok, I think I was fidgeting and nervous the whole time. Eventually I had to part from that bus but this incident totally made my day . I'm so easy to please.
Her name is Nicole Vicious... She is an actress from New York and one of the sweetest girls to work with!
this is what the internet needs right now. innocent, happy, cool, sweet girls..on rollerskates ;)
Affinity brands have long generated their own word of mouth and Web content. Consider at brands such as Apple. Consumer products companies have it, too. Check out the recently launched Gatorade blog and the popular That Pepsi Girl blog for examples of unlikely customer/fan work. These sites may not be as flashy as commercially produced viral stuff (see Viralmeister for examples), but in many ways they're actually better. They're authentic, or very accurate facsimiles of authenticity.
- Can Viral Marketing Be Serious?
First off, Diet Coke now has Splenda. Its a Nutrasweet like artificial sweetner. But this lead to a few of their new advertising campaigns with the likes of Adrianne Brody doing the "Bounce". But the important thing is in one of the latest commercials to come out last week was the "Sparkle" commercial. U can see all these at the Diet Coke Website under thier little commercial section. Now the Wang has noticed that unders "Sparkle" they go with the hip route, using a song by Oakenfold and even using this yong blonde girl. I think this is Coke's answer to the Pepsi Girl, Mandy Amano of superbowl ass shaking fame. Still i think the blonde care-free roller skate look, works with the sunset and the Santa Monica beach look. And the Wang likes. So if the cola commercial battles will lead to cute girl intro casualties like these, then the Wang says let the War of Colas begin!!
During the Superbowl, Pepsi ran an ad called "Pop the Music", which technically was supposed to be a spot for its iTunes tie-in. But the commercial inadvertantly made a star out of a Mandy Amano, a woman who appears in the ad for about three or four seconds. Geeks swooned over her and began posting frantic mash notes on discussion boards planetwide.
People are dedicating serious time to following the every move of the models in commercials. The two current objects of desire are "That Pepsi Girl" and "The Blonde Old Navy Girl". These sites demonstrate the new "layered" reality to advertising.
Thanks to IMDb featuring TPG on their normal page, TPG has leapt to NUMBER ONE on IMDbPro's StarMeter ranking! Usually that's reserved for the likes of Brad Pitt or Lindsay Lohan.
