And if this is a sampling of the commercials that were let through, just how bad was that PETA ad to be pulled?
And this isn't even getting into the violence in so many ads!
It isn't like this is a surprise, though. We've found that we need remote in hand at all times when we try to watch sports with our girls. We keep EWTN on the recall to get away quickly from the immodest, amoral, sexually-charged commercials that are now typical during sporting events. But we are dismayed at how bad this has become. It used to be that dads could watch the game with their kids and bond. Now it's an exercise in quick reflexes as you try to shield your children from the Culture of Death.
(There were exceptions. Budweiser's Clydesdale ads, the Coke ad below where Troy Polamalu takes Mean Joe Green's place ["Is he coming?"], and the e*trade ads were all good, clean fun. But overall, commercial breaks have become a nerve-wracking experience for concerned parents.)
