Music in the commercial
Elton John presides over the King's Court, and judges those who come before him attempting to entertain. The first fellow, a jester, fails at his rendition of "Hot in Herre" by Nelly. The King declares, "No Pepsi for you," and drops the guy into the dungeon.
Next up is a mysterious figure. It's X Factor winner, Melanie Amaro. She belts out a thumping version of the Aretha Franklin classic "Respect".
Reluctantly impressed, the King walks up to Amaro, and says, "All right, Pepsi for you."
She defiantly says, "No" and grabs a goblet from the King's hand, and throws it at the trap-door lever. The King falls down into the dungeon.
Amaro declares, "Pepsi for all!"
The kicker is Flavor Flav is down in the dungeon.
