    According to PepsiCo, the nature of the promotion will vary by country, but will include a TV ad, special-edition Pepsi cans featuring Jackson's image and chances to download remixes of his biggest hits.

    Pepsi's chief creative officer, Brad Jakeman, said the broader Live for Now campaign took 10 months to develop and its aim is to amplify the company's strong ties with pop culture.

    Jackson first partnered with Pepsi in 1983. In 1984, his hair caught fire while filming a commercial for the brand.
