The Weirdest Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever


I did not grow up in a football-loving family (we went to political rallies on Sundays instead), so the Super Bowl has never meant a whole heck of a lot to me. But since I became an adult, I’ve starting tuning into the big game for three obvious reasons: 1) I like the food commonly served at Super Bowl parties, 2) it’s the only time I’m actually interested in watching commercials, and 3) I want to watch the spectacle that is the halftime show. Consider me officially bummed out, then, that my parents were such pigskin-hating hippies in 1989, the year the halftime show took a significantly bizarre turn in the form of Be-Bop Bamboozled, a magic show that involved 3-D glasses and a magician-slash-Elvis-impersonator in glitter spandex. Check it out above and then go read an utterly fascinating interview with the producer behind the show over at Popdust. This year’s entertainers, the Black Eyed Peas, better bring it.

The Hellcats Address The Lack Of Cheerleaders At The Super Bowl


Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka of The CW series “Hellcats” were very concerned at yesterday’s revelation that there will be no cheerleaders at this Sunday’s Super Bowl game for the first time in 45 years, since neither the Green Bay Packers nor the Pittsburgh Steelers have them. And so they made a pretty adorable public service announcement about this very serious issue. Props to them for not taking this news with their pom-poms lying down. Keep reading »

This Year’s Super Bowl Will Be A Cheerleader-Free Zone

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.

PETA Wants To Run Commercial Of Hot Girls Fellating Vegetables During the Super Bowl


You work 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] Keep reading »

Oprah Awkwardly Attacks Drew Brees’ Face


Oh, Oprah. 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 »

A Woman’s Take On The Super Bowl’s “Man’s Last Stand” Dodge Commercial

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 »

I Dare You To Watch This Google Super Bowl Commercial And Not Be Moved

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 »

Watch Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl Ads For Focus On The Family

Yes, the controversial Tim Tebow Super Bowl ads have aired — yes, I just said “ads.” The conservative group Focus On The Family apparently bought time to air more than one $2.5 million dollar commercial on Super Bowl Sunday Here’s the commercial starring the Tebows that run during the Super Bowl — not surprisingly, the word “abortion” is not mentioned once. After the jump, watch the other Focus on the Family commercial starring the Tebows which aired during the pre-game: Keep reading »

What Would The Super Bowl Be Like If Famous Directors Had Control?

Super Bowl Sunday is offering some alternatives for those who don’t praise the pig skin. There’s the Puppy Bowl, plus MTV is bringing out the big guns (literally) with their Jersey Bowl (aka a “Jersey Shore” marathon). But what would be a way to get more non-fans to tune into the game? This video presents an interesting idea—imagining what the High Holy Day of Football would be like if famous directors were allowed to give it a go. Now you have a chance to see how the big game would be with a hip Wes Anderson soundtrack or Quentin Tarantino’s action-packed cuts. Or you can just focus on how shiny the pants on football uniforms are? Keep reading »
