She then grabs a can of Pepsi from an ice bucket and hands it to one of the police officers on duty.

According to the San Francisco city attorney's office, Pepsi did not ask permission before using the logo for the ad.

Madonna, who has had a long-standing beef with Pepsi after the incident, seems to be still holding a grudge after all this time.
