The Northview High School Marching Knights are scheduled to take part in a Pepsi Refresh Everything Video Shoot advertisement Wednesday.

NMK band director Bob Medworth said the event will run from 2:45-7 p.m. Video shooting will take place at the Northview football stadium.

He said a film and audio crew from Los Angeles will be at the school to conduct the advertisement, along with Pepsi Refresh Everything Video Producer Brett Fallentine.

Medworth said band students would be dismissed from class at 1:30 p.m., in order to get prepared for the recording session.

According to Medworth, an audio recording would be performed at the football stadium at 3 p.m.

Filming for the shoot is scheduled to take place sometime around 4 p.m.

Medworth said he hopes to have "fans in the stands" from 4-6 p.m.

"This is everyone's chance to be in a Pepsi Promotional Video for their website and YouTube and it has a slight chance of making it to broadcast TV," Medworth said.

Medworth is encouraging fans to wear light blue (Pepsi blue) tops or dark green or light green and pink. He discouraged fans from wearing black and red.

During filming, the band is expected to perform a routine to the music.

Medworth said the video will feature several music groups nationwide who have won Pepsi Refresh Everything Grants.

Music for the video shoot is from the song, "One Tribe," from the Black Eyed Peas 2009 album, "The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies)."

Medworth added former NMK assistant band director Pete Kikta and the percussion staff combined their efforts to write a special arrangement for the band to perform.

Why would anyone take kids out of a busy school day to film a Pepsi commercial? Do you see the lunacy of this?

Children are sicker and fatter than ever in the USA. Pepsi is one of the reasons that they are.

Sorry to see a school system selling its soul to a major multinational junk food corporation.

Unfortunately as usual someone is wanting to place blame and question when something good is happening to our community. Yes, Pepsico owns several companies that have snack items, but I would say if our nation is overweight because of it PUT the blame where necessary on people who over eat the stuff and then does not exercise. Pepsi is GIVING our school $25,000. I think the least that can be done is a commercial for them. I would also think people would be proud to know that this could possibly be on TV and would show some of the good of our community and not just the drugs that we seem to make the news over on a regular basis.
