A young man pops open a Pepsi, at which point a huge Pepsi logo pinball runs him over, picking him up as a passenger as he bounces all about through the streets of San Francisco. The wild ride ends up in a stadium; the electronic scoreboard there lights up with the ominous message that he's earned an extra ball. Sure enough, another large pinball appears to whisk him away. The spot concludes with the Pepsi logo on a can, accompanied by the slogan, "More happy."
