Why should Don Johnson and Glenn Frey make a Pepsi television commercial? Well, when the director is Ridley Scott (Alien, Bladerunner) and the price is right (about a million bucks) it's tough to say no. The latest extravaganza from the soda pop that loves pop music debuts during the Grammy Awards broadcast on February 25th. In the highly stylized production, Don and Glenn cruise around in a black Ferrari trimmed in twenty-two carat gold (even Don flipped when he saw it) to the tune of "You Belong to the City". The car breaks down, but a cute blond girl comes to their rescue.
