Michael Jackson's estate has signed a deal with soft drinks giant Pepsi, it has been revealed.

It was recently announced that Skrillex, Diplo and A Trak were teaming up to remix Jackson's 'Bad' for an upcoming Pepsi music promotion, and now details of Pepsi's plans for Jackson have been revealed.

Michael Jackson's image will appear on special cans of drink and consumers will be able to download remixes of Jackson's hits from his 'Bad' album.

"We're here to market the 'Bad' album and Pepsi is the most effective place to do it," said a spokeperson to US gossip website, TMZ.

Michael Jackson previously worked with Pepsi in 1984, which resulted in the singer seriously burning his scalp in a pyrotechnics accident. Many believe this incident led to Jackson's addiction to painkillers - which ultimately killed him.
