Will Conservatives Oppose Super Bowl Ad For Gay Dating Site While Favoring Pro-Life Ad?
The 30-second spot shows two men excitedly watching the game, before their hands brush as they both reach into a bowl of chips. Suddenly, the two begin making out, much to the shock of a guy sitting close by.
According to a rep for the dating site, which operates under the slogan “Where Many Many Many Men Come Out to Play,” the ad was submitted on Monday, January 18th. When the site followed up on the status of the ad on Friday, January 22nd, they were told by CBS that “the spot hadn’t been officially approved yet” by network standards, and that “all the Super Bowl spots were sold out.”
Is CBS looking at this as a way to show they don’t take political sides given the already controversial Tebow ad?
ManCrunch officials said they believe CBS has no intention of airing a commercial for their gay dating service, “but do not want to officially ‘reject’ the spot out of fear there may be a backlash from gay advocacy groups.”
However, a representative from the network told Pop Tarts that advertising spots were still open, and was unsure where that comment originated.Click here for reuse options!
