Just two years ago they were like every other teenage boy in Britain but after skyrocketing to global superstardom in the US, the One Direction boys have landed a coveted role in the new Pepsi commercial.

The ad, which has featured the likes of David Beckham, Elton John and Britney Spears in the past, is known for starring only the most high profile of celebrities, proving that the boys have truly made it across the Atlantic.

Teaser clips have already been released but now the full advert, featuring the boyband and NFL star Drew Brees, has been posted online.

The ad, which plays on the band’s phenomenal success and popularity with teen girls, shows the boys fighting over a can of Pepsi with the New Orleans Saints quarterback.

With Harry Styles clearly leading the boys, the band argue that they should have the can of fizzy drink because of their worldwide success and Platinum status while Drew argues that he should have it since he won the Superbowl.

The band argue back and forth with the NFL star over who is the most successful and deserving of the drink, before getting in a crowd of girls to support them.

Drew gets in a group of sports fans to support him and then both parties flash tokens of their success to try and win their case.

While the football player shows off trophies that he has won, the boys get out their platinum disc and a copy of Billboard magazine with their cover.

After failing to resolve the situation, Drew makes a suggestion that could mean that they could all have the Pepsi.

The NFL star joins the boyband, becoming an honoree member and takes to the stage with them to perform a rendition of their new single, Live While We’re Young.

The sportsman, who looks completely out of place next to the teenage boys, can be heard singing the hit song completely out of tune.

The American drink brand prides itself on having the biggest up-and-coming stars for its commercials, as well as some more established names.

Both Britney Spears and Beyoncé starred in Pepsi campaigns when they were at the height off their careers and both joined forces with Pink for a gladiator-style advert in 2004.

David Beckham starred in football themed campaign in 2004 alongside a host of other high-profile footballers.
