By SHAROM OVERTON
The Pepsi Generation is alive and kick
ing in Chapel Hill. At least that's what a
commercial crew conducting . auditions
this week on the UNC campus is hoping.
Thursday, the group began looking at
students here as possible candidates for a
new television commercial advertising
Pepsi-Cola. By early afternoon, more
than 100 hopefuls were leaping, yelling,
kicking and growling anything to
catch the director's eye.
"I'm looking for basic acting tools,"
said Joe Hanwright, director for the Pepsi
commercial. "We need people who have
imagination, concentration and the will
ingness to make total assholes of
Hanwright assembled groups of 10 to
IS people at a time, asking them to do
everything from singing "Happy. Birth
day" to imitating elephants and playing
tag. Since the commercial will center
around sports, he was also looking for
athletic ability and team effort.
"If they can convince themselves that
this situation is reality for just five
minutes, that's great."
Hanwright said he hopes to audition
more than 1,000 people for the commer
cial in the next two days. Next week he
will narrow the field to 200 to 300 people
with approximately 40 main actors.
Auditions will be held from noon until
4 p.m. today at Carmichael field, and 3
to 6 p.m. at Umstead Park.

UNC students audition for television commercial advertising Pepsi-Cola
. . .director says he is looking for basic "acting tools and imagination
Assistant producer Carolyn Judd said
that formal acting training would not
necessarily help in auditions. One of the
reasons the crew chose Chapel Hill was
because of its "non-glamorous" at
mosphere, Judd said.
"In Los Angeles and New York, people
are used to this sort of thing; they're pretty
jaded," she said. "There's a freshness
about Chapel Hill, a certain spirit that
shows that people are enthusiastic about
And that enthusiasm shows. "Fame,
fortune and stardom" are the reasons Reid

Atlanta, Ga., came out to audition for the
Scott Davis, 20, was a little more
realistic. "I think it would be fun to work
on a commercial and be on TV" the
Greensboro junior said. "They told us to
be as bizarre as possible anything goes.
I probably bombed out. . .well, maybe I
got away with a couple of things."
When casting is completed, the crew
plans to start shooting the commercial the
week of Sept. 20. Producer Steven Cohen
said he was still searching for specific
locations, but planned to "spread out all
over town and campus."
Ironically, if Cohen wants to feature
his product in any of the scenes shot on
campus, he'll have to bring the cans in
from somewhere else. University vending
machines and food services sell only Coke
In 1980 the University awarded its ven
ding contract to Triangle Coin Caterers, a
Durham firm which is a distributor for
the Coca-Cola Bottling Company, said
Charles Antle, associate vice chancellor
for business. The school awarded a
separate contract to Coke last year for
fountain privileges .
Carapta Y Horizons
kicks of f new year
By ROBERT MONTGOMERY
The UNC Campus Y kicked off the
1982-83 year Thursday, with Campus
Y Horizons, a program designed to in
form students about the organization.
Campus Y Horizons continues to
day in the Pit, with tables set up for
each of the group's 20 committees.
"This is an educational event which
will tell students about what we do,"
Campus Y Director Carol Holcomb
, The Horizons, program is designed
to help publicize the Campus Y and
get students involved, said Janice
Murphy, co-chairperson of the pub
"I see the Campus Y as an organi
zation in which students can put their
energies into work for justice and
humanity," Holcomb said.
One of the changes for the Y this
year is a new logo symbolizing the or
ganization. The logo is a globe shown
with two hands reaching out. "It
stands for stretching out to people,"
Among the plans of the Campus Y
are several fund-raising events. The
organization operates on those funds,
The biggest fund-raisers are the an
nual crafts bazaar held in December
and Footfalls, which is a 10-kilometer
roadrace and a 2-mile fun run,
The Campus Y also has community
volunteer committees. Among these
committees is the Big Buddy program,
which matches "UNC students with
children who need attention and com
panions. Committees working with global
issues also sponsor a variety of pro
grams including a fast for world
hunger scheduled to take place before
Dinner-discussions with faculty
members are also sponsored during
the year by the Campus Y. These are
also very popular with students,
