Pepsi’s Chain Reaction video isn’t about Pepsi products. At all. But it still draws you in. Why does it work? Because people recognize quality and effort. It’s obvious that there was a ton of time put into creating this video and viewers appreciate that. This video by Pepsi is the perfect example that clever and creative videos may just be more worthwhile than those that promote products.

Their videos resonate with their audience because they tell memorable stories. A smart video producer knows that telling a story in your videos is a sure way to your customers’ hearts.
