Not only was the Pepsi commercial featuring Kendall Jenner a load of crock, but it now seems the company may have some legal issues coming from the San Francisco Police Department over logo usage.

Apparently the police depicted in the commercial were supposed to be San Francisco police officers, even though the commercial was filmed in Thailand. According to TMZ, Pepsi used a logo on the sleeves of the costumes worn by the actors that was very similar to the official SFPD logo, and the SFPD never gave Pepsi permission.

Here’s the logo from the SFPD’s Twitter account:

The SFPD is currently working with the City Attorney’s Office to see if Pepsi crossed the line. Again.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

PepsiCo should send Kendall Jenner to offer the department a cold, refreshing Pepsi. I understand that’s the best way to pacify cops.
