Who knew carbonating beverages could be so sexy -- or controversial?

SodaStream, an Israeli maker of bubbly beverage-producing devices, has ignited controversy for the second year in a row with its Super Bowl commercial this year featuring pitch woman Scarlett Johansson.

The company is at the center of a political debate because one of its factories is linked to the West Bank settlement of Ma’ale Adumim, drawing protests from some Palestinian groups, notes Slate.

However, the ad was censored by Fox this year for a different reason -- ScarJo's tongue-in-cheek diss of rival companies Coke and Pepsi.

Although the actress's relatively tame line, "Sorry, Coke and Pepsi," was cut from the version that actually ran during the game, you can still watch it below.
