Here's the SodaStream ad CBS wouldn't let you see...

According to Will Burns at Forbes, CBS refused to air this SodaStream ad because it would piss off Coke and Pepsi, both of which buy a lot of advertising on the network. That’s pretty sucky. Not to mention shortsighted, but, hey, this is network TV we’re talking about. 

What I really want to know is what does it take to borrow or create a facsimile of a competitor’s branded beverage truck to use in a commercial that’s unfavorable to their brand? I think both Coke and Pepsi have used representations of each other’s trucks in their ads.
