AshleyMadison.com’s superbowl commercial has been rejected by NFL. You may or may not heard of the website before but many married people do have. Ashley Madison offers its matchmaking services to married people looking to have an illicit affair. The Canadian company tried to insert a print ad for its services in the 2009 Super Bowl commercial. The ad shows a sweaty woman in a tiny tank top in a suggestive posture and asking “Who are you doing after the game?” It’s got lot of publicity last month for its so called innovative services. And mind you, it will keep getting more.
The NFL team has rejected the commercial even before seeing it when it realized what the Web site does, according to CNBC.com. “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,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
Ashley Madison president however does not agree with NFL management team. He has his own reasons, after all isn’t he only delivering only what all of us want so badly in life. He said, “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 have in the game program. That’s a product that literally kills tens of thousands of people each year,” he said, adding, “We don’t intend to let this pass. The NFL fan base is our core audience and we will find a way to let them know about the existence of this service and let them decide if it’s something for them.” Link
