Lindsay Lohan mixes Pepsi with milk in new ad – and people are horrified

Lindsay Lohan got engaged for real on the set of Falling For …

Eggnog, Baileys, mulled wine - there are a variety of beverages people enjoy during the festive season - however, Lindsay Lohan has horrified viewers by knocking back "pilk" in Pepsi's latest Christmas advert.

(And before you ask, yes that's Pepsi and milk mixed together).

The 36-year-old provided the ultimate noughties throwback as she danced her Mean Girls character Cady's Jingle Bell Rock routine.

She then fixed herself a glass of the fizzy dairy concoction. First, Lohan added in the Pepsi and commented: "Nice."

Most would assume the ad finished there, but viewers were shocked to see the actress pick up a jug of milk and pour it into the glass, to which she then added: "Ooh, naughty."

Lohan provided a simple explanation for what she had just made: "Pepsi and milk... Pilk," and took a sip of the beverage with her straw.

Of course, the drink sparked discussions on social media, where people weren't exactly keen on mixing Pepsi and milk, with one describing it as a "culinary crime."

While others noted that "pilk" is similar to doodh soda - a fusion drink that originated in Asian countries like India and Pakistan that contains milk and soda which is widely consumed during Ramadan, according to Tasted Recipes.

Some pointed out that "pilk" was also a thing on the classic 70s sitcom Laverne And Shirley where the character Laverne DeFazio mixes the two together as her go-to beverage.

Perhaps an idea for Pepsi's Christmas advert next year?


Some gave Pepsi suggestion as other drinks they could make for next Christmas Twitter/gingerbreadb0i


Think we can all agree the "pilk" advert starring Lohan was a good marketing technique because everyone's curious to taste it themselves.
