Coke- And Pepsi-Mocking Ad Banned From Super Bowl

Though with over 2.5 million views, SodaStream’s commercial is already a big publicity winner.

SodaStream, a seller of home soda-making machines, had already had an ad banned in the UK because it “denigrated the bottled drinks market.”

Below is the replacement spot they will be running in the 4th quarter of today’s game.
