Oh no. Someone tried to make the Pepsi revolution a real thing.

A city council meeting in Portland, Oregon, was interrupted Wednesday morning by a protester who rushed up to the mayor, pulled a can of Pepsi from his jacket and handed it to him.

“What I realized is that the language of resistance has not been properly translated,” the protester told council members before approaching Mayor Ted Wheeler. “So this is for you.”

“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” the mayor said nervously. “Not a good move! Don’t do that again. Not a smart move.”

The protester then pulled another soda from his jacket, snapped it open and raised his can to the mayor. Two police officers quickly intervened and escorted the man away, according to The Oregonian.
