The filters are accessible by scanning QR codes accompanying sassy summer-themed statements on the labels of more than 200 million Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Zero Sugar bottles in stores across the country during the summer months.

This is not the first time Pepsi has used AR technologies in its marketing campaigns. Another action with a bus shelter Pepsi Max, which shot in 2014 and is still considered one of the most creative.

Waiting for a bus to arrive can become funny or not. Pepsi decided to bring some surprises to a London bus shelter to make waiting a bit more interesting. For its latest ad campaign, Pepsi Max used augmented reality to turn a bus shelter's wall into a fake window that appeared to show flying saucers, an attacking robot, and a loose tiger — among other unlikely subjects — making their way down the street. Pepsi doesn't say exactly what it used to make the illusion happen, but it appears to have relied primarily on a camera outside the shelter that let it capture people and vehicles on the street.

Burger King "Burn that Ad"

The BK restaurant chain in Brazil launched an application that allows you to "burn" advertising of competitors on billboards in augmented reality. When a competitor's advertisement disappears into flames, the user sees on the screen a message about receiving a free Wipper at a nearby restaurant. A promo from David, Sao Paulo, was launched to promote BK Express. The service allows you to pre-order and not stand in line.

Each participant in the promotion can receive only one free Vopper.
