PornHub Super Bowl Ad Turned Down By CBS For Being Too Raunchy

Why pay for a Super Bowl Ad when you can get just as much publicity by being turned down for one of the incredibly expensive slots?

“PornHub knows how to play the game, that’s why their ad won’t be running during half time at this year’s Super Bowl. The porn site produced a G-rated Super Bowl ad spot, featuring an elderly couple sitting on a park bench, knowing full well that it would be rejected by CBS, given the nature of their company.

“The whole stunt is going off without a hitch, because by hundreds of media outlets… posting the video and accompanying story, they get all the free press they want without paying the nearly $4 million price tag of a Super Bowl ad slot.”

The G-rated ad, though rather quite funny, is still porn related. So CBS had to decline:

“Super Bowl TV network CBS has stepped up its defensive line ahead of this Sunday’s big game, blocking a proposed multi-million dollar commercial from Pornhub.com…a CBS spokesperson offered this brief response via email to the website’s proposal: “CBS Television Network Standards do not permit advertising related to pornography. Therefore, we cannot accept your submission.”

PornHub Vice President Corey Price responded by saying:

“The Super Bowl is the Holy Grail of ad spots and given our website’s huge following in the US, we developed a G-rated commercial that we felt would meet the network’s advertising standards.”

The short video — though not airing during the big game — is definitely worth watching for a quick laugh.
