Wouldn’t it be awkward/hilarious if during the Super Bowl a commercial came on where two guys accidentally brush hands when grabbing for chips, and then they start voraciously making out? That’s exactly the ad Mancrunch submitted to CBS for review on January 18, reports FOXNews.
Though the ad is still in review by CBS, man-to-man dating Web site Mancrunch reps. don’t think it will ever air simply because it’s for a gay dating service. But in light of the network’s decision to permit an ad denouncing abortion (in so many words), CBS would be remiss not to at least consider this one.
CBS might be doing a bit of fibbing, too. It seems they told Mancrunch there aren’t any spots available, but the Pop Tarts people were told the opposite. We’ll spare you the Twinkie joke.
Mancrunch, ever vigilant, is semi-hopeful that a spot might open up and has asked CBS to review the ad anyway. The network agreed, but as of today has not come to a conclusion. “The ad is still under review, the process takes a little while,” a CBS rep told FOXNews. “We still have a lot of ads we have yet to review.”
Clearly, Mancrunch wants the attention this story is garnering. However, it does bring up a good question: how will CBS respond, considering they lifted a ban on so-called controversial ads in order to let in the Tebow spot. That’s something we’ll want to pay attention to.
