Pepsi strikes deal to put Michael Jackson on 1 billion pop cans

Michael Jackson and Pepsi have always had a bit of an odd relationship, dating back to that time his entire face went up on flames while shooting a commercial for them back in 1984, and Rolling Stone reports that their relationship is about to continue into the after-life with a new deal that will see Jackson’s likeness appearing on an upcoming run of pop cans.

The deal was struck between Pepsi and Jackson’s estate as an apparent 25th anniversary tribute to Bad and will see the singer appearing on a run of about a billion cans produced and sold around the world.
