Man References Pepsi Advert Featuring Kendall Jenner To Try And Bargain With Hurricane Irma

Man References Pepsi Advert Featuring Kendall Jenner To Try And Bargain With Hurricane Irma

In the face of adversity, the people of Florida have come together to share inspired ways they could fight off Hurricane Irma as it approaches the state.

Police had to warn people not to shoot at the storm, after a Facebook group scheduled an attack of great firepower on the eye.

However, all of those efforts have seemed tame compared to this man's inspired effort to ward off the advances of Irma.

In reference to a Pepsi advert earlier in the year, a man is pictured offering the drink to the hurricane.

In the original advert Kendall Jenner offers a can of the drink to a police officer during a protest. The offering seemingly ends the protest and brings peace.

@SUPLEXClTYBITCH posted the picture, which was taken in the middle of a downpour, with the caption: "Irma please accept this offering," racking up hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets.

People, as you'd expect, were moved by the sentiment.

Last week, Florida residents Ryon Edwards and Zeke Murphy started a Facebook event, titled 'Shoot At Hurricane Irma'.

While some people might laugh at the idea, more than 26,000 people were apparently 'going' to the event and more than 53,000 registered their interest.

Pasco Sheriff's Office sent out a warning for people to stay indoors and bunker down instead of standing outside in a massive weather system and shooting bullets at it.

The statement read: "To clarify, DO NOT shoot weapons at Irma. You won't make it turn around and it will have very dangerous side effects."
