Over the past week or so, we heard about CBS rejecting certain ads to play to millions around the country in regards to benefits of marijuana or because the ads were too controversial.
That brings us to this veteran-owned apparel company’s pro-flag Super Bowl TV ad that seemingly punches back at NIKE’s decision to sign Colin Kaepernick and make him the face of their ad campaign back in 2018.
Unfortunately for NineLine Apparel, their commercial will only be seen on social media, because CBS rejected it, according to them.
CBS was apparently not satisfied the firm could pay for the 45-second ad, despite having annual revenues of $25 million. A spokesman for Nine Line charged that CBS didn’t like the ad’s content.
The ad features soldiers, first responders, and images of military graves decorated with American flags and gives credit to them for protecting the rights of those like Kaepernick to protest.
Much like Kaepernick’s Nike ad ended with the former 49ers QB’s stating, “So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they are crazy enough,” the pro flag ad opened up the same exact way.
The entire ad is being narrated by Benghazi survivor U.S. Marine Mark Geist. “Some people think you’re crazy for being loyal, defending the Constitution, standing for the flag. Then I guess I’m crazy,” he said in it.
