Last week we reported that the initial SodaStream Super Bowl 2013 Ad got banned by CBS. SodaStream has since released this commercial online. Watch it below. There is no official reason why this ad was banned. It has clearly though something to do with competitor slamming.
The home soda makers SodaStream are competing with the big soda makers Coca-Cola and Pepsi. SodaStream advertises with the angle that you do not need bottles and cans with SodaStream. Pepsi and Coke would therefore harm the environment. SodaStream is even throwing out a specific number of bottles that could have been saved on Game Day.
SodaStream aired another version of an older ad that did not mention Pepsi or Coke. It just makes the general claim that tons of plastic bottles would have been saved during Game Day. See banned and the final SodaStream Ad below.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
