America Hates Male Nipples: FCC Viewer Complaints About The Super Bowl

As we do every year, we submitted a FOIA request to the FCC for all viewer complaints about the Super Bowl. What would this year bring? Anti-Coke bigots? Richard Sherman haters? Nah. But some folks were really upset about the Red Hot Chili Peppers' nipples. » 3/13/14 3:46pm 3/13/14 3:46pm

Scientology Ran A Local Super Bowl Ad

It's the second year in a row the Church of Scientology purchased a Super Bowl spot, and again it ran only in certain urban markets, so there's a good chance you might have missed it. Maybe the curve has been sledgehammered by Jamie Casino, but it's...a little staid? Step it up, cultists. » 2/03/14 11:01am 2/03/14 11:01am

Will Ferrell's strange Old Milwaukee ads that no one sees are rapidly becoming a Super Bowl tradition. Last year's aired in North Platte, Neb., the second-smallest TV market in the country. Last night's—a solid minute of Ferrell making out with an Asian lady as Chinese music swells and the camera pulls out to show a… » 2/04/13 2:16pm 2/04/13 2:16pm

Deconstructing Jimmy Johnson's Commercial For Medically Ineffective…

It's one thing to sling Viagra, like Rafael Palmeiro and Mark Martin used to do. It's quite another to hawk Extenze, the "natural male enhancement pill" that has no evident medical benefits. But that doesn't stop the shameless Jimmy Johnson. These commercials have aired since 2010, but no one had broken the thing down… » 5/17/12 6:13pm 5/17/12 6:13pm

This Incredible Paralympics Commercial Was Shot In One Take With No…

Yes, it's a commercial. Yes, it concerns the Paralympics. Yes, it's from Canada. Let no preconceived notions you might have about any of these areas preclude you from watching and being generally astounded by this one-minute ad featuring short-distance runner Alister McQueen. They've also posted a video showing all… » 5/03/12 9:30pm 5/03/12 9:30pm

Wes Welker, Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware Play Great In Adult Diapers

Normally we don't like to post commercials. But there's something so determined about little Wes Welker. Oh, it's for (an undefined, nebulous) charity? Wes Welker will wear the shit out of your adult diapers. And Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware give in to peer pressure a little too easily. If that guy's wearing… » 3/29/12 3:40pm 3/29/12 3:40pm

Kentucky Fans Are Convinced That UPS Is Out To Get Them

Perhaps you've seen this UPS ad, which has aired since conference tournaments began. Seizing on their new tagline of "logistics," it features the famous 1992 regional final between Kentucky and Duke that ended on Christian Laettner's buzzer-beater. A dark moment for UK, but a legendary ending to one of the greatest… » 3/16/12 12:50pm 3/16/12 12:50pm

Gaah! Michael Strahan's Fingers Will Haunt Your Dreams

Given the nature of our content this week, we were looking for videos of golden retriever puppies prancing about in a field to end the day here, but then we came across this, and we decided to horrify you once again. It's no secret that Michael Strahan (and plenty of other pro football players) suffer from mangled hand … » 11/10/11 8:30pm 11/10/11 8:30pm

And Here's The Inevitable Blake Griffin Kia Commercial

A lot of us really enjoyed the NBA Slam Dunk Contest last weekend, which brought back a little luster to an informal, if hotly debated demonstration of the sport's signature play. Well, the climax of the contest wasn't a contest at all, nor a schoolyard top-this played out on a grand stage. No, we were all watching » 2/25/11 5:00pm 2/25/11 5:00pm
