Unleash the fury! CBS plans on airing a pro-life commerical featuring former University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow during this year's Superbowl. Ballsy move, CBS.
And here I am thinking that, ever since the Janet Jackson incident, network television has been playing it "safe" when it comes to the Superbowl.
In the ad, Tebow, an outspoken Christian, is shown with his mother, talking about how courageous she was to go through a difficult pregnancy even when the doctors advised her to have an abortion. The ad carries with it a pro-life message, even if it doesn't necessarily chastise anyone who is pro-choice.
As if I didn't already have enough reasons to dislike Tim Tebow (I'm a University of Tennessee girl, us and Florida don't exactly get along). I think taking a stand, regardless which way you go, should be a completely personal decision, and I think having it thrown in our faces during the most heavily watched program of the year is very bad taste.
I want to go back to talking babies, dancing reptiles, and clydesdales. Those are much more fun.
What do you think about the commercial? Do you think it's appropriate to air during the Superbowl? What if it was aired during regular television, would it be okay then?
