    I totally agree with your points regarding negative marketing. But I believe Jaam-e-sheereen was the first one who started the blaming!

    If you remember 3 year old AD of Jam-e-Sheereen – “Tumhari drink may kya hai?”. When the two kids were talking. Boy (having pepsi bottle) asks girl, drink share karo gi? The girl says: Bilkul nahi. Then she gives a whole list of stuff like, sandal and what not and asks tumhari drink mai kya hai? the boy replies: pata nahi!

    So its all fingerpointing that brings negative marketing among the companies. Though PEPSI has already smashed jaam-e-sheereen with their AD: “Kya yaad karo ge” and “the story of 3 brothers – ek peeta tha lal sharbat, doosra chaye, teesra pepsi”. And now that jam-e-sheereen has stopped the negative marketing at their end, PEPSI should also refrain from such marketing strategies! But they won’t: its our thinking – the marketing guys just won’t stop. Thinking yet needs to be matured a lot!

    Later. :)
