Student ends up with 400 cans of Pepsi Max after entering contest as a ‘joke’
Most of us dream of winning the lottery or taking an all-expense-paid vacation, but the reality is, the odds are stacked against us.
A woman might wish she wasn’t a winner, after entering a contest and ending up with hundreds of cans of Pepsi Max.
Ellie Sarah Thomas, from the UK, shared a clip on her TikTok account, @ elliethomas544, revealing cans and cans of soda dotted around her college accommodation.
Thomas, who reportedly attended the University of Birmingham, said: “When you entered a contest to win 400 cans of Pepsi Max as a joke, but you actually won.”
The soda forms a towering pile against the wall, as she films a pallet of the drink outside her house. She forms a pile against her wardrobe, where there is also some stashed above.
“How the hell did I win this. Like I entered a contest to win 400 cans of Pepsi Max for free and won and someone just delivered them,” the text reads on screen. .
The 19-year-old captioned the clip, which can be seen here: “The Uni room is full of help from Pepsi Max.”
With an average can containing 11 fluid ounces, that means Thomas now has 29 gallons of soft drink, enough to fill a tub.
Walmart sells a pack of 36 Classic Pepsi, the same size, for $ 33.49, which means Thomas has over $ 368.39 in stock in his bedroom.
Since it was shared last week, her hilarious situation has racked up over 1.5 million views as people were mad at her price.
Billy Wilson joked: “2 cans before bed, 1 can when waking up, 4 cans at work, 2 cans when you come home from work, 1 can with dinner. That’s only a 40 day supply.”
Thegrassinstgreener joked: “At least you never have to buy a blender again.”
“Oh my god, it’s worth at least two weeks,” User wrote.
Soggy Burrito commented, “I wouldn’t share a single can.”
Taking a different approach, CJ1M1K admitted, “I would have thrown a party.”
Nath Parker suggested, “Vending machine needed. “
George Harwood asked, “Imagine if you didn’t like Pepsi.”
While Simlover00 added, “Now you have a small business selling them. “
Daisy thought, “We could finish this in a week.”
“Everyone in the family gets a crate of Pepsi for Christmas,” Laan joked.
Some suggested that he donate the surplus to a homeless shelter, to which Thomas replied, “Yes, that’s a good idea.”
News week contacted Thomas for comment.
