Pepsi Optimism Project

"There's been a lot of discourse about the logo," acknowledged Cooper. "It makes a good news story, but I don't know if it's rooted in reality. It's a 110-year-old brand. Red, white and blue has been part of the brand for a long time."

Mexico: Alleged drug hit men using 'Jackass' logo

I thought this was mucho amusing:

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Soldiers in Tijuana have detained three suspected drug assassins with uniforms featuring a skull above crossed crutches, apparently patterned after the logo of the "Jackass" television show and movies.

The men are suspected of working for a Mexican cartel operator nicknamed "Muletas," or "Crutches."

The 15 black uniforms found in the men's SUV in Tijuana, across the border from San Diego, had arm patches with the logo and the slogan, "Muletas Special Forces."

An army statement issued Friday said the men were pulled over because their car had bullet holes in one side.

Soldiers found 20 guns in the SUV and another vehicle and suspect the men were involved in kidnappings and killings. No charges have yet been filed.
