    Considering a 30-Second spot will cost the advertiser a cool $5,000,000 , it should have its own discussion thread.
    The Best, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly ones can be discussed here.

    The 1st offering I saw this morning was from Mr. Clean! WOW! Sales of this product should skyrocket! :D

    Was Mr. Clean always sexualized and this is just an extreme example? :headscratch:

    If there is one constant in advertising, sex sells...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The first national Super Bowl ad for 84 Lumber will not appear during the game the way it was intended.

    The Pittsburgh advertising company that created the spot was forced to make a change.

    Snip

    “Simply put, that was a spot that they didn’t think they would be willing to run during the Super Bowl,” said Brunner.

    He would not be more specific, but the ad reportedly featured a wall blocking people looking for work in the United States, and immigrants unable to cross the border due to the wall.
