2007 Pepsi Cola commercial
Aysun Kayacı's modelling breakthrough came especially with a Pepsi Cola commercial shot in 2007, revolutionary in Turkey by reason of its message charged with eroticism – later toned down – and with its final moments picturing a cast of thousands. The advert's mini-play commences with a nerdy young Turkish male opening his refrigerator to find two cold cans of Pepsi Max. He retrieves them both and tosses one to his equally nerdy young male roommate. First young male pops the top of his can, lifts it to his lips, and upon first taste he finds himself in torrid open-mouthed lip-lock with the very sexily dressed Aysun Kayacı. After a moment of dreamy bliss, the young man comes to his senses, recoils in wide-eyed disbelief, rips the can from his lips and the image of Aysun disappears. He eye-checks his roommate for a similar reaction, but his roommate has not opened his can yet. So he hazards another sip and the same thing happens. After longer blissful moments, he abruptly awakens from his reverie, rips the can from his lips for the second time, and slams it to the kitchen counter which finally gets his roommate's attention. With a meaningful look, he urges his roommate to take a sip from his own can of Pepsi Max, with the same predictable results. The commercial made Aysun Kayacı nationally famous.
Aysun Kayacı played the role of Yağmur in the Turkish police procedural Gece Gunduz ("Night and day").
She also presents a program on NTV named Haydi Gel Bizimle Ol (Come join us), where she occasionally causes uproars and finds herself at the center of criticisms and polemics by her remarks.
