Pepsi Commercial Rips Off ‘Put A Little Love in Your Heart’ I Think

I’m no musicologist but I was shocked when I just saw what I assume to be a new Pepsi Cola Commercial at the 2 minute warning during the Arizona Cardinals Atlanta Falcons Playoff Football game on NBC that starts with the wording “Yo” “Howdy” “Aloha” shown and the lyrics “And the world is made of energy and the world is electricity” and so on, which sounds with the melody practically identical to the part on “Put A Little Love in Your Heart” by Jackie DeShannon that goes “and the World will be a better place, and the World will be a Better Place, For You and Me”. Includes Jackie DeShannon video of “Put a Little Love”.
