Here's the Scarlett Johansson advert that got banned by the Super Bowl

But not for the reason you’d expect.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON’S ad for SodaStream – the toy every child of the 1980s wanted – has been banned from the Super Bowl.

So why did the biggest US sporting event of the year bar the actress?

Was it because she lets her robe slip seductively from her shoulders and licks the straw in a distinctly almost-NSFW way?

No, it’s because she briefly mentions Pepsi at the end of the ad – the Super Bowl’s main sponsor. BOOO.
