Hunter Hayes Takes Center Stage in New Pepsi Commercial
Hunter Hayes didn’t take home his first Grammy award in 2013, but the 21-year-old country newcomer still had a great night at the show. In addition to introducing Carrie Underwood‘s powerhouse performance, Hayes appeared during the commercial breaks in his new spot for Pepsi.
Hayes’ Pepsi commercial is only 40 seconds long, but he manages to squeeze snippets of two of his hit songs into the clip. While the commercial displays shots of the country favorite playing in front of jam-packed crowds, ‘Somebody’s Heartbreak’ and ‘Wanted’ play in the background.
Of course, you can hear the screaming fans, too.
Near the end of the clip, Hayes is shown shaking hands with audience members in what appears to be a huge arena. Then, the commercial cuts to a screen that simply says ‘Get Ready for Pepsi + Hunter This Summer.’
The last part of the commercial is a six-way split screen with some reels of Hayes playing guitar and singing and the words ‘Live for Now’ with the Pepsi logo taking the place of the ‘O’ in ‘Now.’
Hayes already partnered with Pepsi when he played for the Pepsi 5th Quarter Performer show during the Super Bowl last Sunday night (Feb. 3), and it sounds like all of the Hayniacs out there have an awesome collaboration to look forward to this summer!
Also this summer, the rising country star will make an appearance at the much-anticipated Taste of Country Music Festival. Get tickets (and all of the details) here.
