The Coca-Cola man pushes a can of Coke over to his new friend, who looks around, politely takes a sip and passes it back, then returns the favor. But the Coke guy keeps drinking the Pepsi and won't give it back. Result: A fight, and in the closing scene we see a chair tossed through the window. Endframe: "Nothing else is a Pepsi."

Little boy on a beach drinks Pepsi through a straw, and when the bottle is empty, he keeps sucking until he's sucked into it. His sister makes a face and yells, "Mommy, he's done it again!" as she pounds on the bottom of the bottle.
