Banned Super Bowl 2010 commercials you didn’t see (videos)

While none of the banned Super Bowl XLIV TV ads featured sex with vegetables like last year’s notorious PETA ad, two of the commercials prohibited in 2010 featured homosexual themed content, which still apparently doesn't mix with football. The below videos are safe for work, unless you work for CBS, in which case you may be fired for watching two men make-out.'s "Man Kiss" submitted this ad, featuring two less than attractive male football fans kissing after a touchdown. CBS claimed this ad "is not within the Network's Broadcast Standards for Super Bowl Sunday." Representatives for Mancrunch argued that if the ad featured a man and a woman kissing, it would be approved. I'd go a step further. If the ad featured two heterosexual men kissing for a none sexual reason, say a bet, it would be perfectly acceptable. The problem is that these two seemingly heterosexual men enjoy kissing each other.'s "Lola's Lingerie"

While had several commercials featuring Danica Patrick that did air, this ad was pulled. Why? Perhaps because it featured women in several layers of lingerie walking around a mansion. No. Maybe because it portrayed a large, black, effeminate man named Lola who starts a business selling his lingerie designs. I'm still baffled as to why this is controversial considering that half of the designers on Bravo's Project Runway are effeminate men who design women's clothing.

KGB' "Head Up His Ass"

This KGB ad is not exactly sexual, but it does feature various heads up asses, which could be considered sexual in some circles.
