There’s an internet legend that at one point, due a deal with the USSR, that Pepsi owned, briefly, the sixth largest navy on the planet. So did it? To find out the answer, watch this short and simple animated history documentary.

Ah, yes. Good old Internet. There’s 3 kinds of stupid:
pepsi was preparing an invasion because of the wave of people drinking less soda
Why am I slightly disappointed this never happened?
Ok Pepsi didn't have a navy, but did you know that Vodafone was the largest producer of steel pipes at one point in time.
Pepsi does and a galactic battleship tho
i thought if pepesi has a navy it should be shooting pepsi at people
"How did Pepsi have the 6th largest military? In 1989, Pepsi and the Soviet Union signed a remarkable deal. The Russians gave Pepsi 17 submarines, one frigate, one cruiser, and one destroyer for $3 Billion worth of Pepsi. This made Pepsi the sixth largest military in the world"
So much fucking bullshit online
No navy, but they did buy a Harrier with Pepsi Points!
Hm… Nuka Cola 🤔
What are your sources?
I looked up articles from the time, but they hadn't sited sources backing it up as true.
Although old, busted, decommissioned warships wouldn't have really been a navy anyhow.
Yeah their waste bottles are like tiny ships littering the ocean
Kelly Moneymaker loves Pepsi.
Imagean it did and declared war on come
It’s all fun and games until Pepsi goes to Coca Cola HQ
I'll take things that never happened for 500
East india company watching pepsi's navy: Pathetic
Is Kelly money maker still making money???
I relly wonder how with all the internal struggles, after churchhill left office, how Britain has mangaged to be anything more than a minor nuisance to modern countries and have the 3rd largest navy and be one of the strongest forces in Europe. Guess the British are just to angry to die even though it might be good for them to get some restructuring in parliament and have some compromises made instead of the humanist groups and conservitative groups(the ones that tend to use Christianity as a mask to hide their greed) to just stop arguing and maybe try a new constitution to break up parliament into less strong groups? Take notes from the US constitution which doesn't allow any one religion to gain any power. I don't meen like how Christianity dominated it I meen in how no particular sect of thought humanism, quakers, puritanical, catholicism, atheism, diism, and baptism were never able to relly be in charge but the idea of a Supreme being was at its heart but the constitution let the people decide in their areas, but the federal government would remain neutral( in essence the older form of secularism).
Pepsi: finally after this all this trouble we have access to the Soviet market
Pepsi: ah shit here we go again
Growing up in the USSR I remember trying Pepsi for my first and only time in the late 80s as a kid. I loved it, but it was simply impossible to find on a regular bases, but it kickstarted my love affair with soft drinks, even the Russian-made ones that were readily available.
You refused Pepsi and got Cola, “you be ready human, sixth largest navy is coming for u”
Russia once offered to pay their debt to my country with military tanks for the butter we sold to them.
Why are we spelling rumour in simplified English?
