Scarlett Johansson SodaStream Superbowl Commercial Banned (uncensored)
I’m a fan of Scarlett Johansson. I’m a fan of Sodastream (yes I own one and use it weekly). I’m a fan of the NFL (GO PATS).
Anymore, it seems the NFL wants to censor, change, or water-down almost anything it can. I understand this ban is primarily coming from Fox, but it’s still NFL related which I find no coincidence. Can’t touch the QB high, or low, or anywhere the ref feels you shouldn’t, can’t tackle high, can’t use your head, can’t hit in the head… now you can’t say “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi” in a commercial.
Check this out. Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream, went on record Friday with USA TODAY saying that Fox rejected the Super Bowl commercial “because they’re afraid of Coke and Pepsi.”
This year’s rejected ad for SodaStream got banned because it ends with Scarlett Johansson saying, “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi.” Yep, you read that right. Cray cray.
That’s the line that Fox has demanded that SodaStream kill, says Birnbaum. “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.”
Well, Mr. Birnbaum, I’m disappointed to. The “No Fun League” is at it again, this time VIA Fox. How many times have I seen Pepsi put down Coke, or vise versa? How many times has Burger King trashed McDonalds? I’m not sure on the numbers, but I know it’s happened because I’ve seen it, right there on my TV. So what makes this one so different? Here, take a look for yourself, watch Scarlett talk about SodaStream then fly off the deep end and totally trash Coke and Pepsi in a way that cannot be shown to the general public (*sarcasm*).
