    Pro-Abortion Group: Tebow Super Bowl Ad Promotes Domestic Violence Washington, DC -- Unable to gain any tradition by calling the Focus on the Family Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad extremist or over the top, pro-abortion groups today are offering a new dig on the commercial. The president of NOW and other abortion advocates claim the ad promotes domestic violence. http://www.lifenews.com/nat5975.html

    Perhaps the ads from Focus on the Family featuring Pam Tebow and her son Tim act as a sort of Rorshach test for some people. Where most viewers would see the ads as playful, light, and welcoming, some see them as a threat — and maybe some don’t see them at all outside of their preconceived notions. Power Line notices that the Associated Press misreports the content of the two ads: But not every commercial was strictly humorous. Automaker Toyota aired several pregame ads to reassure worried owners after its recalls connected with accelerator problems.And a commercial by conservative Christian...

    NEW YORK -- Even the long-awaited Super Bowl ad from conservative group Focus on the Family came with a punchline -- a hard hit and a soft sell. The 30-second "Celebrate family, celebrate life" ad starring Heisman winner Tim Tebow ended with a surprise -- Tim Tebow tackling his mother after she says she nearly lost him during her pregnancy. The pair jokes that they have to be "tough" with all the family has been through. The Women's Media Center, which had objected to Focus on the Family advertising in the Super Bowl, said it was expecting a "benign" ad...

    By now, most Americans have heard about the famous Tim Tebow advertisement Focus on the Family will air during the Super Bowl. The ad reportedly features Tebow and his mother Pam and her story about how she decided against an abortion. But few people have hear Tebow's father discuss the story of Tim's birth. As most people know, Pam Tebow got sick with dysentery while on a missions trip to the Philippines and her doctors suggested she consider an abortion because of the medication she was taking while pregnant with Tim. She refused, gave birth, and son Tim led the...

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an attempt by feminist lawyer Gloria Allred to get CBS to drop the pro-life Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother: Gloria Allred is no stranger to the subject of abortion, so it is not surprising that she wants to kill this pro-life ad. Her letter to Les Moonves of CBS, available at RadarOnline.com, wants the ad pulled because it is allegedly guilty of “misleading advertising.” Allred, who has not seen the ad, charges that when Tebow’s mother was being advised by doctors in the Philippines to consider an abortion (she...

    As many of us learned from the 1978 comedy classic Animal House, vegetables can be very sensual (while people are sensuous). However, the magical combination of gorgeous girls and fresh vegetables is not getting a whole heck of a lot of love from NBC - the network broadcasting Super Bowl XLIII on Sunday. In fact, they have said no to a commercial from - of all places - PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals).The organization known for (among other things) the "Holocaust On Your Plate" campaign and the push to rename fish "sea kittens" is being told by...

    Amy Borkowsky needs to find a good man, and she wants your help. She’s not asking for much, at least not by the standards of the mortgage industry. Just enough money to buy a personal ad — during the Super Bowl. OK, it’s a bit pricey: $3 million. But, Borkowsky points out, where else can she get the attention of 60 million American males, several of whom may be interested in meeting a 5-foot-6, 110-pound comedian and best-selling author (“Amy's Answering Machine: Messages from Mom,” “Statements: True Tales of Life, Love, and Credit Card Bills”) who is a member of...
  • Advertisements in Superbowl - Snickers commercial

    <p>Last evening, as I watched the Superbowl with my nine year old son, I became extremely annoyed at the MARS Corporation and their advertisement for Snickers which showed two guys locking lips. I can't even fathom why somebody thought that this would be a good advertisement for that particular product and why they chose to air it during this event, especially when they knew children would be watching. If their aim was to draw controversy in the hopes of increasing sales, then I sincerely hope they missed their mark. I hope that, instead, they lose sales because of their idiocy.</p>
