(CNN) – First, actress Scarlett Johansson’s SodaStream Super Bowl ad was rejected for taking shots at Coke and Pepsi. It’s since been revised and accepted to air during the game. Here is the unedited version.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the FOX network asked SodaStream to remove the line, “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi.” But, Chief Executive Daniel Birnbaum declined. He told USA Today that, “This kind of stuff happens in China.”

Pepsi is sponsoring the Half-Time show. FOX declined to comment. Read more from the Los Angeles Times here.
