Greatest Space Ads - Part VII - 7Up Spaceflight Competition

This commercial was filmed by 7Up in 2005 to promote their competition for a free suborbital spaceflight.

The winner (decided by sweepstakes) was to be awarded the chance to fly on an FAA-approved commercial spaceflight. According to the competition rules desribed here, the sub-orbital spaceflight is conditional on a company being able to offer the service before end 2009. Currently only Virgin Galactic seems in the running to get approval before that date.

If no one can make good on the ticket by the end of 2009, the winner would just get $300,000 in cash.
