so let me get this straight, the modern interpretations of bravery, freedom and community through church is just not giving a fuck? Of all the ways these paintings could've been interpreted, Pepsi chose the ones that to my view portray the Czech youth as a bunch of bratty, spoiled, moronic kids. with all that's going on in the world, and with all the youth have accomplished through collective efforts, this is a disgraceful collection of paintings. it could've been a really nice execution based on a fantastic idea. but fuck it everyone, lets be young and not give a fuck about anything, go Pepsi!

a reinterpretation may not always be something that pleases our ears or eyes. It is the expression of an individual's thoughts and attitude toward modern society, and that's what makes him/her unique - a point of view.

A good pice of work gets people thinking, it can inspire, it can provoke.

To me, this piece of work was a huge success not only because it spoke truth of youths of today, but also because it managed to provoke people like you.

Alfons Mucha master piece was finished after 20 years of work, and how long it took you Pepsi? in my opinion this is too much pretentious. Use something really old and patriotic to make it again different is not an idea and it is certanly not fresh.
