1989: Full length Pepsi "Like a Prayer" Ad.


21 years ago today, Madonna premiered her first single in 2 years not via radio, not via a new video on MTV, but through a TV commercial for a soft drink!

Yes, broadcasts of a Pepsi ad all around the world on March 2nd 1989 were the first time people would hear "Like a Prayer".

This is my original recording of the commercial from UK TV, where the ad aired close to 8:15pm during a break on ITV's police drama "The Bill"!
