Here's the Super Bowl ad that CBS rejected

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 29th 2010 5:01PM
Danny told you about a bunch of advocacy ads that will run during this year's Super Bowl. But CBS has rejected an ad too, from the dating site ManCrunch.com. But thanks to the internet we can still see it. Here it is. It's wicked gay.

I am a glbt activist in America who just blogged about this monstrosity.

This was a cheap ploy at free publicity and nothing else.

The owners of ManCrunch own a variety of niche dating services like Cougarlife.com.

No gay business would ever put out a homophobic ad as stupid or obnoxious as this one.

I am so glad it got rejected.

Something tells me this ad was designed to be rejected to get the publicity without having to pay the ridiculous Superbowl ad costs. I'd bet traffic is up on their site.

Also those are NFL jerseys, Packers (insert juvenile joke here) and Vikings, with the NFL shield and any team logos removed. The League may have asserted some copyright & tradedmark infringement rights to keep this ad off the air.

Thought the Broadway play Wicked was better.
The surprised guy (stand in for audience I guess) has the
requisite look on face.
Ad would have been talk of the office tho! But then best to avoid talk of politics, religion or orientation. Stick to money.
Prob be followed by girl on girl one next season? Yummy.

As a brit, were i know we're much more "okay" with that sorta subject than american, but that advert is *hilarious*.

Shame CBS said no. I thought the superbowl ad space was all about pushing limits.
