Super Bowl Commercial Banned!
Fox has reportedly rejected this Super Bowl commercial from SodaStream starring actress Scarlett Johansson, not because of any sexual messaging, but because it ends with her saying “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi.”
SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum tells Bruce Horovitz of USA TodaySports that Fox is “afraid” of Coke and Pepsi:
“What are they afraid of?” asks Birnbaum. “Which advertiser in America doesn’t mention a competitor? This is the kind of stuff that happens in China. I’m disappointed as an American.”
