TV Network CBS Rejects Super Bowl Commercial from Adult Entertainment Website
Super Bowl TV network CBS has stepped up its defensive line ahead of this Sunday’s big game, blocking a proposed multi-million dollar commercial from Pornhub.com, a leading online destination for adult entertainment. The G-rated commercial features a fully-clothed elderly couple sitting on a park bench before the Pornhub logo is revealed towards the end of the web-shortened 20 second spot. The safe-for-work ad was released on YouTube today and can be viewed here: Rejected Commercial.
Despite including no sexually-explicit content a CBS spokesperson offered this brief response via email to the website’s proposal: “CBS Television Network Standards do not permit advertising related to pornography. Therefore, we cannot accept your submission.”
Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said the commercial was less controversial than many others featured during the Super Bowl in recent years.
“The Super Bowl is the Holy Grail of ad spots and given our website’s huge following in the US, we developed a G-rated commercial that we felt would meet the network’s advertising standards,” stated Corey Price, Vice President of Pornhub. “We would understand their decision if the commercial contained sexually explicit or offensive content that wasn’t safe for the family-friendly telecast. But there is nothing controversial about it, so we’ve released the commercial online to let the people of America voice their opinions.”
Previously, organizations such as PETA, Bud Light and Go Daddy caused controversy after airing what were later deemed either politically, racially or sexually insensitive commercials during the Super Bowl.
