'Don't say 'sorry Coke and Pepsi'', FOX tells Scarlett Johansson

SodaStream's Super Bowl video has gone viral after it reprised its 2013 trick of poking fun at Coke and Pepsi, which led Fox to ban the Scarlett Johansson-fronted advert.

Last year's amusing advert (5m+ views and counting) also led to a ban, and this time round actress Johansson's relatively innocuous 'Sorry, Coke and Pepsi' was enough to provoke the broadcaster's ire.

"If only I could make this go viral..." the Hollywood sire and SodaStream brand ambassador ponders, before a change of gear - down from bathrobe to evening gown...

All of which has served to generate 1.3m+ YouTube hits (on SodaStream's official page) a week before the Super Bowl version of the advert airs, when the Coke and Pepsi mentions will be edited out. You can watch both SodaStream videos here:
