Pepsi Taste Challenge 2013_R4_No Backgrnd resize OK, I just got word about this contest I can run for you, my loyal readers. Electro-pop sensation Lights will officially kick off the Pepsi Taste Challenge at the all-new ‘Pepsi Pop-Up space’ at 315 Queen Street West in Toronto. There she’ll delight Pepsi fans by administering the popular Pepsi Taste Challenge and performing an exclusive acoustic set on Wednesday, June 26 beginning at 2:30 pm. The official Twitter hashtag for the Pepsi Pop Up is #PepsiPopUp for those of you who want to follow the action online. The contest I get to run is hooking one person up with two VIP tickets to this launch event!!! Details below!!! You know you want to check this out, I mean just look at that picture of Lights below, she knows how to play a keytar! You know a musician is awesome when they can bust out a keytar! (Although she probably won’t tomorrow, it being an acoustic set.)

The Nitty Gritty Contest Details

OK, in order to enter you’re going to have to do 3 simple things (all 3 not just 1 or 2).

1. FOLLOW @PepsiCanada and @TheDanLevy on Twitter

2. TWEET about how you wanna go with our Twitter handles & a link to this post – something like “Oooh, @TheDanLevy & @PepsiCanada I kan haz 2 VIP tix to #PepsiPopUp event for an acoustic performance by @Lights!?!? http://bit.ly/136PbRz“…and as of 2:35pm make sure your tweet doesn’t start with an @ or the tweet won’t count.

3. COMMENT on my blog something relevant to the post on which you’re commenting. It can be any post on my blog but it has to be relevant to that specific post. It can’t just be a random word. I suggest checking out the tag I’ve used relating to Pepsi Canada over the years – https://levynewsnetwork.wordpress.com/tag/pepsi-canada/. Creativity and insightful comments might even gain you extra points!

NOTE: Since I will be meeting the winner tomorrow to give them their VIP tickets right before the event you have to be able to get to downtown Toronto tomorrow afternoon or you can’t receive your prize.

The contest is open until 11:59pm June 25, 2012. Contest winner will be announced tomorrow morning at 9am. Here’s Lights’ music video on YouTube of one of her singles “Ice” which has over 8 million views! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU9-TRVbhkE For more check out these web links: Pepsi Canada on Twitter at @PepsiCanada & Pepsi Canada on Facebook at facebook.com/PepsiCanada Lights on Twitter under @Lights and Lights on Facebook at facebook.com/lights

    What a great and cool idea – looking forward to checking out the pop up shop – i especially like the customized tshirt experience since I’m a collector of graphic tshirts. Fingers crossed I win the VIP passes – thanks for the contest!!

      Awesome! Best of luck to you in the contest!!!

    just wanted to add to my comment – I’m also a blogger – so, of course will write up my experience and post it up on my blog!! : ) thanks!

      Awesome! From one blogger to another, I have a small piece of advice for you. There is no shame or harm in including a link to your blog in the profile you fill out when leaving a comment on someone’s blog. See how if you hover over Kuttsyark’s name (he wrote the comment below yours) it has a link to his tdotsocialmafia blog? Something like that, not a link in the comment itself to his blog but in his profile. Dong this is likely to drive some traffic to your blog.

    Happen to be a pepsi and a lights fan. Pretty cool event. I love when companies do stuff like this in the city.

  4. June 25, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    I love lights! When my 15 year old cousin was diagnosed with cancer, I got in contact with her and she actually called my cousin at the hospital! She’s a great singer & person in my eyes 🙂

    Thank you for the chance to enjoy the perfect combination of Pepsi and Lights! I’m always impressed with the great events Pepsi puts on!

  6. June 25, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    This sounds like a fun event! Quite a few bands I recognize in the lineup to! Nice

    • June 25, 2013 at 9:24 pm

      It promises to be a great event but just to clarify Craig, the bands won’t all be there at the launch event – as far as I know – rather they will be appearing there over the course of the next month while the pop-up is open.

  7. June 25, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Just the fact that Pepsi’s throwing a pop up event alone is pretty rad! Lights as a bonus, can’t go wrong!

  8. June 25, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Love acoustic performances, would love to see Lights tomorrow. Bonus i prefer Pepsi over Coke.

    • June 25, 2013 at 9:37 pm

      Nice! Thanks for the half entry Adil! (Still need to follow through on the other parts of the entering process.)
