Pepsi Max competes in the energy drink market. Compared with other common energy drinks, Pepsi Max gives the consumer a relatively low dose of caffeine. Pepsi Max provides 5.75 mg caffeine per 30ml. The product is marketed as an 'Invigorating Cola' implying it is meant to compete in the energy drinkmarket.[citation needed] The official marketing website for Pepsi Max, contains an 'odd cast' featuring a spoofedtelethon urging viewers to donate yawns and uses the slogan 'WAKE UP PEOPLE there was a featured commercial of a spoof on the Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator yawning, when calling a play, thus, causingTony Romo to be sacked, he was then replaced by Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones who gives him a Diet Pepsi Max.

Although technically a competitor in the energy drink market, Pepsi Max commercials present the beverage as an alternative to Diet Pepsi.

After the 2009 Super Bowl commercial aired, another, more recent campaign (including television and radio advertisements) has emphasized that the product is intended to be a men's diet cola. In one commercial, entitled "I'm Good," men are shown in various dangerous and painful situations, and after each brief sequence, the "injured" actor states, "I'm good!" The take-away message is that men can handle anything, except for the taste of the average diet cola. Pepsi Max is intended to be the diet cola that men will enjoy. Another commercial entitled "Ingredients" shows men in various situations listing fictitious ingredients that essentially make Pepsi Max seem "tough." The fictitious ingredients include pepper spray (as a sweetener), scorpion venom, crushed Viking bones, and the saliva of a rabid wolverine. The actors also state that the can is made from the hull of a nuclear submarine, and subsequently crush the cans in their bare hands, stating, "I just crushed the hull of a nuclear submarine." This commercial ends with "Maximum Taste, No Sugar, and Maybe Scorpion Venom.
