But there's one catch...they have to live like the Simpsons.
Pepsi is giving away an exact replica of the Simpson home.
The house is in a Henderson, Nevada neighborhood.
It has been painted in such animated colors as power orange and generator green.
It comes with such touches as corncob kitchen curtains, family photos, high doorways for Marge's blue beehive, and extra wide doorways to accommodate Homer's girth.
