There will be something missing during Sunday night’s Super Bowl—something that’s been a part of football’s biggest event for the past 45 years. Cheerleaders! Apparently, neither the Green Bay Packers or the Pittsburgh Steelers have them—the Steelers sent their cheerleaders packing in 1970 and Green Bay got rid of their pom-pom shakers in 1988. And the NFL has confirmed that they won’t be providing a squad to make up for the void. Well, since there won’t be a cadre of pretty women on the sidelines, this should at least make the Super Bowl cameramen a touch more creative on what to shoot before cutting to a commercial.

that carrot, baby! In 2009, PETA
was willing to pay millions to run a commercial during the Super Bowl of scantily clad women making out with vegetables
. The networks declined to air “Veggie Love” — think of the children! — but now PETA is trying again with an “outtakes” video. Once again they’ve upset the delicate balance between animal rights/objectifying women. But when it comes to PETA, what else is new? Hey, how many meateaters became vegans or vegetarians because a bikini model fellated a stick of celery? [BuzzFeed

. Last week she invited New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees on her show. If you’ve seen him at least once sans helmet, you know that he has a birthmark by his eye. Oprah, apparently had no idea. Watch above as she says, “Who just kissed you? There’s a big old smudge right there,” and then tries to wipe it off. Awk-ward. Keep reading »
As we all know, the theme of this year’s Super Bowl commercials (lovingly curated in a slideshow by Amelia) was OH NOES! WOMEN ARE EMASCULATING THE MENFOLK!
Dodge Chargers’ ad about “Man’s Last Stand,” in particular, had a lot of critics rolling their eyes for the way it depicted modern dudes as a sorry, henpecked lot. Producer MacKenzie Fegan has filmed a “response” ad called “Woman’s Last Stand,” and though it’s a wee bit bitter, the sentiment has us fist-pumping like we’re on the freaking Jersey Shore. (Warning: two little curse words make it not safe for work.) [The Sexist] Keep reading »
Go ahead. Just attempt to watch this Google commercial that aired during the Super Bowl and not get choked up. If you can do it, you are made of far stronger mettle than me. It’s super sweet, and it’s a great fit for Valentine’s Day. The only thing is, there’s something slightly creepy about it. I mean, isn’t there? One cannot help but wonder: Am I living my life, or am I Googling myself into the future? I have no idea. Keep reading »

After the jump, watch the other Focus on the Family commercial starring the Tebows which aired during the pre-game: Keep reading »
At last night’s Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam in South Beach, Rihanna took to the stage and sang a medley of “Madhouse,” “Wait Your Turn,” “Live Your Life,” and “Disturbia.” She did it all in a one-armed, one-legged, futuristic black-and-white jumpsuit while singing into a microphone attached to a life-size sword. Probably, that weapon would come in handy if Chris Brown tried to bum-rush stage. She could decapitate him without missing a beat. Keep reading »
