CBS Says ‘NO’ To A Strip Club Commercial During The Super Bowl (Video)
If you’re a football fan, then you know watching commercials during breaks are must-see things to do every single year. Majority of the commercials are funny, most serious, and then there are the few that are on the raunchy, sexy side. Pretty much all GoDaddy commercials like to keep it extremely hot & steamy to draw the viewers in.
So it came as a complete shock to popular Scores strip club in New York when they were told no by CBS. The reason: It didn’t meet the standards of the NFL. Really? The NFL has standards now? Hilarious.
“The famous NYC strip club, Scores, was ready to throw down $5 million for a coveted 30 second spot to promote ScoresLive.com … which offers one-on-one online interaction with strippers.
If you think that sounds awesome … you’re not a CBS honcho. The network fired off a letter saying the Scores ad “didn’t meet the standards of the NFL.”
We got a copy of the NFL ad guidelines and along with firearms, contraceptives and gambling-related ads — companies featuring “nude or semi-nude performers” don’t make the cut.”
