‘I am not Wisconsin’: Upper Peninsula Twitter page upset with map mistake in Mountain Dew campaign

Mountain Dew has a new campaign: “DEWnited States.”

For the advertising launch, the brand created a map of all the states in bright colors. Unfortunately, the map has one noticeable mistake. In it, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula appears to be part of Wisconsin.

Get ready for a summer full of Dew! 50 states. 50 bottles. Each one with a story. What’s yours? Collect them all to get a $100 prepaid gift card. #DEWnited See rules: https://t.co/y7WG57s8Ri 18+, ends 8/10/19. pic.twitter.com/PemXgmjt2k

The Upper Peninsula Twitter page was not pleased with the mistake.

The page demanded that Mountain Dew fix it or send free soda to UP residents.

Dear @MountainDew,


Fix this, or send a free case to all my residents. Your call.
