(NAPSI)—Over 7,500 football fans in Rochester, New York experienced the magic of a Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show after recently being crowned the most hyped hometown in America. As a reward for showcasing their hype, Rochesterians received the experience of a lifetime—their very own Pepsi halftime show with an exclusive concert headlined by singing/songwriting duo Nico & Vinz. Pepsi continued to deliver the hype in unexpected ways by surprising the town with special guest appearances from Buffalo Bills new head coach Rex Ryan and star wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The town takeover also included mobile Hype Squads and vending machines that offered fans a chance to win VIP passes or meet and greets.
