E.T. Pepsi Commercial

The recent post on E. T. has gotten me thinking about how much that movie permeated '80s culture, including its commercials. 

Here's an '80s era Pepsi commercial starring E.T., and featuring some of the same hopeful, enchanting imagery which was a central aspect of the movie.

This is one of the wonderful things I remember about growing up in the '80s: the sense of hope and wonder, as conveyed through the creations of the great Steven Spielberg.
