So there has been two Superbowl commercials yanked for this year: one in Canada, and one in the U.S.
The first ad, done by PETA, was yanked by NBC. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals believe everyone should be a vegetarian. NBC said “depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards.” I don’t think it’s that bad. It just shows a bunch of semi-sexy women with vegetables. I’ve seen sexier ads on TV.
The second ad, by Ashley Madison, was yanked by CTV here in Canada. Ashley Madison is an online dating site for a married person to have an affair. CTV says they don’t want to run an ad that is “promoting adultery.”
What’s funny is that these companies get more exposure for networks refusing to run the ads than they would have gotten if it ran.
Anyways, below you will see the two commercials, plus another couple of good ones. Enjoy!
