Earlier this week, Pepsi suggested in a highly controversial ad that the popular soda is the solution to all the world’s problems. But when one man tried the very clear unrealistic method, all hell broke lose.
During a city hall meeting in Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday night, the group was discussing how to tow boats left on city docks, when a man identified as Carlos Enrique singlehandedly turned the meeting into a major headline.
During the meeting, Carlos told Mayor Ted Wheeler that he was a former journalist with the Boston Herald who had just moved to the city. During the discussion, however, Enrique went into a rant about how people attend council meetings to simply berate the Mayor.
“And I’m sure that has happened before in the past,” he said. “And it made me kind of wonder, like, how could someone just endure people coming and berating you every week and everyone gets mad and you say, you say … I’m signing the ordinance anyway. And what I realized.”
After talking over each other for a moment, Enrique walked towards the front of the room and said: “The language of resistance has not been properly translated to you. So this is for you.”
That’s when he stopped, put his hands in his pocket and pulled out a can of Pepsi. But before the Mayor realized the unexpected turn of events was to simply mock or pay homage to the recent commercial, he stuttered: “Uh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Not a good move, not a good move.”
He later added, “Thank you … don’t do that again, not a smart move.”
The man then turned the moment into a larger spectacle by opening up a second can of Pepsi for himself. At that point, there was no coming back. Two men approached Carlos and escorted him out of the meeting.
The incident comes just months after city protestors hit the streets following the February 9 police shooting of 17-year-old black teen, Quanice Hayes.
It’s worth nothing that according to reports, Carlos (if that’s really his name) never worked for the Herald.
The entire moment was caught on camera and posted on YouTube. The occurrence takes place right around the 2:51 mark.
Khloe Kardashian Wants A Makeup Line Too … But Why?
It’s no secret that when it comes to the Kardashian clan, the family does not pass up a lucrative deal. Now, on the horizon for the already rich middle Kardashian, Khloe, she is diving into the makeup game.
Khloe is now the latest Kardashian/Jenner sister to kick start a cosmetics line. Apparently, the reality star and expecting mother trademarked paperwork for “KOKO Kollection by Khloé Kardashian” and “KOKO Kollection.” Per the report, “her application covers a broad range of makeup merch.”
The chatter comes just days after reports surfaced that Kourtney Kardashian also trademarked makeup lines “Kourt” and “2Die4Kourt.” Yes, folks; this means Kim, Kylie, Kourtney AND Khloe will have makeup products available for purchase.
It’s one thing for Kim and Kylie to jump head first into the cosmetics game, after all, makeup and beauty has been their brand for years. But Kourtney doesn’t strike us as a cosmetics girl, rather, an interior designer. Maybe she should jump into the decor world. But we digress.
As for Khloe we ask, simply: WHY? What more can or will she do that hasn’t already been done? Is makeup a large part of her brand? No, but it is a pay check.
It’s unclear when the soon-to-be-mom plans on launching the line, but our guess is not in the upcoming months; for she is due this Spring.
