Just like the Super Bowl! It's Inauguration Bowl!

The irony is the last name of the person who sent this...

Hello Lisa,

With the Inauguration just around the corner, we wanted to let you and your readers know about an online program in line with America’s desire for change. It’s called “Dear Mr. President” where people can upload a video message to President-Elect Obama at Pepsi’s new site RefreshEverything.com. Pepsi is open to hearing from everyone- republican, green or democrat— share your opinion, get your voice heard! The submissions will eventually be compiled and edited in the form of an open letter to Obama to be delivered to the President. Videos have already been uploaded, some celeb ones too (Lady Gaga, Eva Longoria, Jeff Gordon and will.i.am), so do take a look.

In other inauguration news, Pepsi-Cola will sponsor a symposium at Howard University on the 19th, titled “Refresh the World,” which will feature participants like Spike Lee, Queen Latifah, Arianna Huffington and the Rev. Al Sharpton. There is also a panel called Refresh Gender – that one and all the panels will be streamed online though.

Every generation refreshes the world.

Best,

Kathleen Bush

For those of the "Pepsi Generation" this little musical flashback:

Lisa - When can we expect your video and will you release it on Liberal Common Sense? :-)
