After the launch of sting in Pakistan, PepsiCo started a widespread campaign, which included road advertising and TV commercials. Starting from Karachi, the Hummer (advertising vehicle) travels through different areas and offers free Sting energy drink to people on the roads. The TV commercial was shot in Indonesia in which a person is shown generating electricity and charging a car battery after drinking the Sting energy drink.
