Gay dating ad banned from super bowl

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.

"Plus, we knew our ad was going to be one of the more memorable ads that the media and public would talk about well after the big game." The rep still anticipates that CBS will accept the ad, but expressed distress that the process was taking such a long time.

After days of deliberation, CBS has elected not to air an ad from a gay dating site during next week's Super Bowl.In the commercial, two football fans are watching a game when their hands touch in a bowl of chips. According to a rep from the site, the company submitted the ad on January 18, and when they checked in again on January 22, they were told that the ad had not yet been approved and that all the spots were sold out.Man Crunch then requested that the ad still be considered, in case a place opened up.“We are very disappointed that in 2010 such discrimination is happening especially given the fact that Focus on the Family is allowed to promote their way of life during the Super Bowl,” the rep said.“We're calling on every same-sex advocacy group to petition CBS and let them know this discriminatory behavior will not be tolerated.” But a rep for CBS said they had no record of the cash advance offer.Man Crunch 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.
