I really think the guy with the glasses is David Arquette. I know he's not credited on anything in IMDB until 5 years after this commercial did or didn't air, but that voice seems so familiar to me....

The late Bruno Kirby was indeed one of the actors. And the voiceover was none other than my favorite president of the United States, Martin Sheen.

John Pemberton.

Investigators found the apothecarian face down in a puddle of his own work, a tonic of kola. A strange round indentation of two-and-a-half inches in diameter was impressed into the base of his skull.

Here's how this commercial came to be...

A Pepsi executive thought to himself,
"Wow. I am getting KILLED by Coke. If only I could go back in time and destroy all of the work they have done over the last 100 years - then I could make my sales numbers... Hey! that would make a GREAT commercial!"
