Rachel Holms, senior marketing director at PepsiCo said: “It has been a real pleasure to work on this campaign and TV creative, which thanks the British public for the support that they have shown us. We wanted the ad to be a tribute to them and showcase how far the brand has evolved over the years, with some fun and relatable moments along the way.

"From trying to enjoy a BBQ in the typical British weather, to a man and his grandson enjoying a packet of Walkers together at a football match – we are proud to have been part of households across the nation for so many years.”
