Superbowl porn!

Asked by elijah (8627 points ) February 2nd, 2009

Viewers in Tucson, AZ were treated to an accidental porn clip during the superbowl. Now I’m all about free porn, but not during a family viewed event. Thoughts?

this “accidental” porn seems to happen quite often, and always during big things: kids’ DVDs, major US sports programs.

I think some potheads somewhere are laughing their asses off right about now.

wow. Since they lost, they needed something to take their mind off the hurt.

i liked the way evan stone did a sort of helicopter thing there, and i guess kids wouldn’t be shocked but would think “look, that man likes to play with his wee wee too” therefor telling them it’s ok to play with your penis

jwamoto, that man wasn’t playing with his wee wee. The woman next to him was.

I’ll bet Tyler Durden was behind it.

Honestly, what’s the big deal?

caly420's avatar

on tv it was not blimped out…so viewers and their kids saw the boys package flailing around

eponymoushipster's avatar

@caly420 see, the fact that it was such a specific thing (namely, flailing boner) and not just the typical moaning woman, grunting man, whatever – makes me think someone did this on purpose.

and it’s not like comcast is exactly the most loved company in america.

I realize it wasn’t censored on tv. But I know four year olds who have wiggled it out and proud at family picnics. The difference is he’s an adult. It’s just a penis. Can the world stop freaking out about genitalia now? I mean, it’s 2009.

@asmonet if you could see my junk, you’d know why people freak out at public displays of dongness. It’s like a gentle giant, strumming along the countryside.

it’s not so much shock as a profound and heartfelt awe.
for them, it’s not just a penis. it’s an event!

@eponymoushipster: Ha, reminds me of that whole Colin Farrell thing. When he had a nude scene and the women and men in the audience were so distracted by his… package that they were forced to cut it.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@asmonet yeah, me and colin farrell, beating people up and hauling junk for 30 years! i wish i had his accent though…

asmonet's avatar

You’d just sound drunk and unintelligible. Try Scottish on for size. ;)

eponymoushipster's avatar

@asmonet yeah, much better. As Billy Connelly once said, regarding the Irish finding Scotland “Oh look, a place more rainy, cold and miserable than where we live now! let’s go!”

i love scotland. went there on vacation once. beautiful, and rivers of whiskey.
actually, in real life, i do sound drunk and unintelligible. but that’s because i am.

screw you library patrons!

Oh, Billy Connolly just got you added to my fluther.

@asmonet there is a big difference between a child seeing a penis naturally and viewing porn. I monitor the movies my children see, as responsible parents do. There is no need for a child to see a sexually explicit scene. I wonder how many children said “Why is that lady sticking her hands in that mans pants? Why is she touching his privates?” I mean it’s not the end of the world, but it’s definately not something to casually dismiss either.

asmonet's avatar

Meh, I see why people might get their panties in a twist, but, I just don’t think sex is that big a deal. Our entire culture is so freaked out by it while at the same time using it constantly in advertising. If it was treated as a natural, normal act like it is in other countries no one would see it with the same level of shock as we do now. No one would have put it in there in the first place.

And as far as I’m concerned, nothing ‘explicit’ happened yet. A chick groped a guy, then a penis was waved about.

Nothing more than you’d see in a teenage house party bedroom.

elijah's avatar

I’m not talking about teenagers.

asmonet's avatar

Fine, kids walk in on parents, children play doctor, teens grope awkwardly in closets for seven minutes of heaven.

Whatever. It’s natural. And it really wasn’t hardcore porn.

If I was a parent and saw this, I’d have a quick chat with the 12 and under crowd about what they saw and any questions they had and move on to the hot wings.

It’s only as big a deal as you make it.

elijah's avatar

You’re right, different people have different values. I know that as a parent my views are different.

asmonet's avatar

So, we agree to disagree. :)
I see the validity in your argument I just don’t feel the same.

El_Cadejo's avatar

its a shame the video cut out before it even started to get good.

asmonet's avatar

^I agree.

Like the writer of an excellent commentary in the latest edition of GQ Magazine – I’m an old-time ad guy who wrote TV commercials during Mad Ave’s heyday – before “creative committees” turned them into mindless chunks of wasted time.

Here’s an excerpt that for me, says it all.

I grew up in the Golden Age of Super Bowl Advertising, when Ridley Scott was directing kick-ass Apple spots and Budweiser had talking frogs and you knew there’d be a monkey in every other ad. It was awesome. But now we’re in the Dark Ages, and anyone who still watches the commercials is wasting valuable time that could be spent urinating. Ignore them the way you ignore ads the other 364 days of the year. And ignore those stupid reviews the next day. Just because USA Today found a bunch of tardbillies who liked that one Coke Zero spot doesn’t mean you should watch it. Then maybe, just maybe, the VP of printer-cartridge installation at AT&T won’t be allowed to ruin a decent idea for a commercial.
