WATCH: SodaStream’s Banned Scarlett Johansson Super Bowl Ad Is Sadly SFW
Yeah, we, too, wish SodaStream’s Super Bowl commercial starring Scarlett Johansson was banned for reasons like “indecency” or “rampant feminism” or “showing gay stuff,” but sadly, Scar-Jo neither takes her clothes off nor lip-locks with a lady in the 30-second ad which Fox banned from airing during the game.
Instead, their beef lies with the fact that the commercial closes with the tagline “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi” when Pepsi is sponsoring the game. Fox hasn’t commented, but SodaStream Chief Executive Daniel Birnbaum says, “They’re afraid of Coke and Pepsi…This is the kind of stuff that happens in China. I’m disappointed as an American.”
Since SodaStream can’t get its money back for buying the ad spot, they’ve opted to run the commercial with its final line cut. But you can watch the oh-so-provocative ad in its uncensored glory below.
