The Super Bowl Ad NBC Rejected

By now most of you will have heard about the ad that NBC disallowed from the Super Bowl. I rather like it and I am thrilled to be able to show the ad here at Rickety. There will be a few less viewers than the Super Bowl but you get to see it ahead of time. Also, as an added bonus, the ad will not be interrupted by any football and you won’t have to stay home from church to watch it. Produced by and as of today the ad had generated 6,475 comments on their website and 3,344 on YouTube. Here is the ad on YouTube.


20 Feb 2009 Perhaps the title of this post should now read: The Ad That CNN Rejected. The ad was submitted to CNN to be broadcast following President Obama’s first State of the Union Address — scheduled for next Tuesday. The response from CNN? A representative from CNN wrote:

Thank you for your patience. We have decided to pass on this creative. CNN doesn’t accept advocacy ads that portray personal decisions in a manner that suggests a position in favor of the advocacy message, without having permission of the persons involved.

There’s not much we can do about it except to write to CNN President Jonathan Klein.

  1. I believe everything composed was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what
    if you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean The Super Bowl Ad NBC Rejected is kinda boring.
    You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they
    write article titles to grab people to open the links. You might
    add a related video or a related picture or two to grab
    people interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your
    posts a little livelier.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and
    sources back to your blog? My blog site is in the exact same
    niche as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Regards!
