Kendall Jenner's ad for Pepsi has united the world: everyone thinks it's terrible

'Good on you Pepsi, you managed to bring Liberals & Conservatives together in a WTF were they thinking moment.'

The new Pepsi advert has been successful in bringing people together, though not in the way the company intended. People of all political stripes are united in their disgust at the viral video.

To those on the left, the ad is a clumsy and cringeworthy attempt by the soft drinks company to 'get down with the kids' and look a bit edgy, and which ends up representing everything Millennials are protesting about.  

To conservatives, it's proof that big business has been co-opted by immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals and the anti-Trump movement. 

But there's one thing that everyone seems to agree on: the ad is garbage. 

Really, how the hell did the advertising agency manage to sell the idea to Pepsi in the first place?

This mishmash of a Black Lives Matter march, an LGTB rights protest, a United Colors of Benetton photoshoot, and an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is convincing no one. Not even music courtesy of Bob Marley's son Skip can save it. 

Most people tried to see the funny side. 

But some were too outraged to laugh it off so easily.
