Superbowl Ads, Censorship and more...

Tuesday, February 08, 2005
I think the Superbowl advertising gets more attention than the game ... anyway, certainly that's the case outside of the US. This year's advertising led to some debates and censorship as the NFL was petrified of any allusion to last year's infamous "wardrobe malfunction." So much so, in fact, that a number of ads were banned for mentioning it, or being too racy in their own right. The best of these was a Budwiser ad which never aired, but featured the "real" reason the Janet's revelation. The ad, of course, is becoming one of the hottest viral downloads and you can find it here. Jeff Jarvis also has some decent commentary on the censorship of advertisements over at Buzz Machine. This year's big advertising critique find though was the new blog AdJab which is focused on advertising media and did a great job blogging the Superbowl ads in sometime close to realtime. To see all the Superbowl ads, (streaming, sadly), visit iFilm.
