“Absurdly Addictive” New Netflix Series Has Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Score

One of Netflix’s newest documentary series has arrived, and in a rare move, the show has a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes. All with the intriguing title of Pepsi, where’s my jet? the series tells the true story of the time when a college student accepted the challenge of redeeming Pepsi Points for a fighter jet. While only six reviews have been published for the series to date, the review aggregator has given it a Fresh Tomato icon and confirmed the 100% rating when you visit the page. Here’s what people are saying about the new series:

RogertEbert.com awarded the series a rating of three out of four, writing that it “not only playfully unpacks the details of what went wrong, but digs deeper to get to the heart of why false advertising matters.” Ready Steady Cut called the series “part Cola Wars and part millennial Mad Men while being absurdly addictive”, but stamped it with a rating of three out of five. Finally, Decide said the series is “goofy and silly, but it’s definitely illustrative of what could happen if even big companies like PepsiCo and their ad agency don’t close as many loopholes as possible.” Watch the trailer for the series below.

Netflix’s official description for the new series reads: “The year was 1996 and the Coke Wars were raging. Despite Pepsi’s celebrity-infused ads, Coke still had the larger market share, so the second-placed brand decided to their biggest campaign ever: Called ‘Pepsi Stuff’, it featured a soon to be infamous commercial suggesting that if you just bought enough of their products you could use ‘Pepsi Points’ to buy sunglasses, leather jackets… and maybe a Harrier jet? Pepsi execs assumed the military jet’s astronomical ‘price’ was high enough to indicate it was a joke, but college student John Leonard took it as a challenge and decided to bluff.’

“With the help (and funding) of mountaineer Todd Hoffman, Leonard devised a plan to win the greatest prize of all – even if it never existed in the first place. Filmed in a bold, irreverent style and steeped in the music and culture of the middle of the 1990s, Pepsi, Where’s My Jet?, sits down with Leonard, Hoffman, the commercial’s creative team, and a truly unexpected cast of tangentially involved public figures to tell the legendary story of the boy who sued Pepsi for a fighter jet, and became the hero of a new generation.”
