Queen Latifah Sings At The Super Bowl

Super Bowl Commercial Round-Up

Here’s a few of the more noteworthy ads from last night’s Super Bowl, starting with the strange “effeminate gay slap” clip from Motorola. Huh? I especially liked the Vizio “stars of the internet clip” with Beyonce, although you have to pay attention to catch all the references.

This is the unedited version of the classic Men On Film skit from the 1992 Super Bowl episode of In Living Color. Two jokes were censored out of the skit in repeat airings.

Clothing Drive

As we all heave a sigh of relief that the stupendously awful (and totally fake) ManCrunch ad won’t air during the Super Bowl, we must also wryly observe that something like this Budweiser ad would be warmly received.

BroHarmony.com

The National Lampoon guys are quick with a parody of the gay dating site Super Bowl ad nonsensery. “If Jesus had BroHarmony, he’d probably still been alive because Judas would’ve been screened out….that’s how good it is.” (Via – Queerty)

Mrs. Tebow’s Big Lie Of Omission

For weeks now, we’ve been inundated with Christianist propaganda about how Tim Tebow’s mother made the Godly moral choice not to abort her son.

In her exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com ...

All the blowback over Focus On The Family’s anti-abortion Super Bowl ad may be having an effect at CBS, who is said to be considering accepting an ad from a gay dating site.
