Iconic Lifestyle Brand Collaborates with World Famous Sailor Man for All-American Collection
Popeye is teaming up with The Joester Loria Group and Body Rags Clothing Co., the industry-leading t-shirt manufacturer, to develop a co-branded lifestyle program that celebrates two American pop culture icons – Pepsi® and Popeye®.
A limited-edition t-shirt featuring both classic brands will be launching on Amazon.com’s flash sale site, MyHabit, on August 18 for a 72-hour sale.
This collaboration will be centered around a spirited celebration of red, white and blue with Popeye and an ice cold Pepsi.
MyHabit was created by Amazon.com in response to customers’ desires to shop intelligently from a selection of great brands. It offers customers an inspiring daily destination to discover new and favorite brands at exciting prices.
During the 1940s, when The Pepsi-Cola Company was looking to create a new and more effective advertising program, it considered having Popeye as a spokesman for the brand, envisioning the Sailor Man downing their beverage instead of spinach. Finally bringing the brands together has been over 75 years in the making.
