Put away your dong shots, A.J. Daulerio–that nonsense is for the regular season. It’s Superbowl time, time to summon the energy to talk about television commercials with a fervor inconceivable throughout the rest of the calendar year.
And we’re off to a good start. Fox has rejected a commercial from anti-Obama tee-shirt company JesusHatesObama.com, reports The Huffington Post.
The commercial involves bobble heads of Jesus and President Obama.
The site was founded by “conservative comedian” Richard Belfry. It reads:
“Do we really believe that Jesus hates Obama? Of course not! However, we do believe in freedom…as in the freedom to make fun of the Obama administration with novelty t-shirts…our products may be a joke but so are the policies of this administration.”
We wish Fox had called their bluff, and been like oh yeah hilarious guys, you’re the next Budweiser frogs, that’ll be $3 million. Collar tugs ensue, right?
Oh nevermind, they had “financial backing from private investors,” reports CNN.
Congrats on the free publicity, tee shirt guys.
