I like what Pepsi did instead of blowing $20m on a Superbowl campaign. This campaign is massive. US citizens, businesses or not for profit organisations can submit ideas, rally support on Facebook and Twitter and get funding for a social project (see refresheverything.com).
The campaign has limitations: it only takes 1,000 submissions per month and it's not global. While this makes it more manageable for Pepsi, it makes it less inclusive. It also potentially limits how much they can promote the project in Bought media. Driving too much demand will lead to more dissatisfied customers.
