The strongest warrior in the land, Lu Bu, couldn't be taken down by any man, but historians have discovered that he actually died of aspertame poisoning.

Suntory International and Sony are cross-promoting Pepsi Next, a low-calorie soda, and the upcoming PS Vita launch title Dynasty Warriors Next. Not that you'd get that from seeing Lu Bu gulp down a soda. Dynasty Warriors might seem like an odd choice in the US, but the series is incredibly popular in Japan.

It isn't the first time a game character has starred in an ad, but that doesn't make it any less funny.
