Ashley Madison is a
Stamos Brahsome favorite. On that website, you can find “friends” of an “adult” nature who may be “involved.” Or, to put it another way, if you’re married and looking to eff but don’t want to deal with actually going out and hitting on other women, AshleyMadison.com is your go-to.
And because the site is relatively discreet and classy, they were able to sneak by PSP Sports, the company in charge of filtering Super Bowl ads, signing a six figure deal with the NFL to appear at “the big game.”
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said that no one in the league office actually ever saw the ad. “After realizing what the site was, the sales rep called back and told the company there was a mistake and that his company could not sell an ad to the site.”
Naturally, the AM.com peeps aren’t exactly “thrilled” about this recent development, considering that they would have made a shitload of cash off appearing at one of the most watched sporting events in the world. (If not “the” most watched, really.)
“I find the rejection to be ridiculous given that a huge percentage of the NFL’s marketing content is for products like alcohol, which they sell in their stadiums, promote on their air and clearly have in the magazine,” Biderman said. “That’s a product that literally kills tens of thousands of people each year. So if the NFL is worried about legislating behavior and regulating what their audience should be exposed to then it should start with a ban on all alcohol advertising and products being sold, not AshleyMadison.com.”
Well, that seems a bit silly; remember, the Super Bowl but the kibosh on the GoDaddy.com ads after word of a half naked woman possibly appearing spread. Of course, they don’t mind flashing Prince’s metaphorical penis or Janet Jackson’s literal nipple, so it does seem a bit hypocritical.
