Earlier today I heard about a commercial from a gay (obligatory Seinfeld not that there’s anything wrong with it line) dating site that was rejected by CBS from airing during the Super Bowl.
Here’s the scoop from Chicago Breaking Sports:
Gay-dating site Mancrush.com claims CBS has rejected its proposed Super Bowl commercial because it features two men making out on a couch.
Mancrush.com spokeswoman Elissa Buchter told CNBC’s Darren Rovell that CBS said it was sold out of Super Bowl advertising time.
Rovell writes that as of Thursday, advertising time remained for the Feb 7 game. That raised the question of, if CBS is willing to air Tim Tebow’s pro-life spot, why not a commercial for a same-sex dating site?
Money, or lack of it, might be the real issue. One unnamed television source told Rovell the site wouldn’t pass the mandatory credit check.
Then I saw the video and realized what we Bears fans have suspected for years – that Packers and Viking fans are GAY. The dudes making out are clearly a Packer fan donning AJ Hawk’s #50 and a Viking fan sporting an Adrian Peterson #28. Check out the supposed commercial for yourself:
I’ll leave my fudge packer jokes at the door, but a friendly word of advice to the Packer fan: Peterson has poor ball security and is bound to fumble.
