Using 2x RED EPIC Dragon, 1x DJI INSPIRE Drone, 7 Go Pros, and UrtheCast, 25 videographers captured the action set to the sound of original track ‘Miracles’ by Usher.

Black Knight Decoded tells a powerful story about a father (Oyelowo), his daughter (Layla Crawford) and co-conspirator (Pinto) on their “quest to decode radio signals transmitted from the Black Knight satellite where they rely on support from communities around the world to come together to communicate universal messages of hope, unity and peace”.

Aside from the United Arab Emirates, consumers from countries including Australia, China, the Czech Republic, India, Mexico, Poland, Romania and Russia represented their areas of the world as part of the ongoing Pepsi Challenge.
