The commercial features American astronaut Scott Kelly promoting a fake product that turns bodily gas into fizzy water. The faux device attaches to the company’s water bottles and is “operated” by a user blowing into it. The carbon dioxide from the person’s breath is then converted by the device to turn regular water into carbonated water, according to the commercial.



“When life gives you gas, make soda water,” Kelly said in the video.


Other Israeli companies also released spoofs to celebrate the occasion. Music education startup JoyTunes Ltd. debuted a hoax version of its piano-teaching app that erases notes and shows you photos of your exes instead. Taxi-hailing company Gett Inc. published a poster saying that during the Israeli election taking place on April 9, each of its taxis will be equipped with its own ballot box.
