The Superbowl Ad You WON’T See This Weekend

Mon, Feb 1, 2010

Advertising, Pop Culture, TV

We used to look forward to Superbowl Sunday for the ads (that, and the excuse to over-indulge in junk food). But it looks like CBS is determined to ruin the one sports-related joy in our lives. First of all they went and accepted an¬†anti-choice ad from conservative Christian group¬†Focus on the Family — apparently CBS no longer bans advocacy submissions or controversial ads, as they have claimed in the past. Of course, Focus on the Family claims the ad is not controversial at all, and is simply about “the issue of life.” Riiiight. The ad — which has not yet been released — is expected to feature¬†Pam Tebow (mother of college football star Tim) and her decision to carry Tim to term despite a recommendation from doctors that she have an abortion. Sorry: despite a recommendation from doctors regarding the issue of life.

Unfortunately CBS’s policy on “controversial” ads still holds firm if the ad happens to come from a gay men’s dating site.

    Well thank God for the “WON’T See This Weekend”. That was gross and enough for me!!! Whats next? Prepare myself to see a butchfest commercial before the next ballet I watch?

    Huh? I thought it was a great commercial. I don’t understand WHY CBS wouldn’t run it, but can run commercials with “erectile dysfunction” stated about 10 times and talk of “4 hour erections” on a half hourly basis.

    Should GLBT people just stay out of sight, as to not to “offend” the more judgmental and prudish among us? I don’t think they should.

    And, personally, I’d rather see a “Butchfest” (whatever that is) than a ballet any day….

    (applause) Hear, hear, Mlle L! I actually like ballet, but I could go for some “Butchfest”-ing too. I’d rather see guys kissing than see them killing.
