    They plaied one commercial twice in the pregame show.

    And here's the weird part (now get this now...) I saw the one with Piggy and the Blowhorn on NBC during the Queer Eye show (I dislike sports greatly, and the other networks didn't even try! :p )

    My favorite part of the commercail was the ending part were Miss Piggy says step away from the Frog and Jessica falls over then Animal says Bye Bye :halo:

    It looks planned to me in order to shock and create publicity and they are just covering up now, but there is the possibility that she is pierced with that contraption in real life and nobody knew about it. Justin tearing the sectioned part of her top off looked VERY deliberate to me, and seeing as these stars have like 3 or 4 people dress them it would seem wierd to me that they could just misplace a bra or something, especially as she has the nipple 'thing' as you say. Apparently the FCC are investigating the 'nip' ! (lucky them)

    FCC heads stated about a $27,500 fine or something like that.

    Potentially $27,500 per CBS station which would end up in the millions of dollars.

    darn, that's gotta burn......

    It was very disturbing, since I was at a church party. If you didn't notice, one of the lines of the 'song' (if you can dare call it that) was I'm going to have your clothes off by the end of this song (or something to that effect)

    The FCC is full of it.

    I can't really understand why so many people are up in arms up this. There are a lot more things to be upset of or afraid of seeing. It's a breast. That's all. Watching MTV at any point, you will see a lot worse, not to mention degrading.

    it's just a shock to some people, I think. In my family, we don't have anything such as cable, so having this sort of thing on our TV (well I wasn't at home, but just the same) is an experiance that is not desirable for me or any member of my family. I don't know if I would get onto CBS, except if for their naivity for not realizing that this WAS MTV putting on this show. Janet has admitted that it was a last minute decision, and has supposedly said that she is sorry if she offended anyone, but last I heard, Justin is still calling it a 'wardrobe malfunction'. I think this is something that demoralizes television in our nation. The superbowl is a family event for most people (and a church event at churches around the nation) and that is not acceptable. The FCC should be splitting the fine between MTV CBS Janet and Justin, in my opinion. Each had guilt, rather it being direct or non.

    I just don't think this is a very good sign for the future of television. I say go FCC!

    Its just that what if they go for other show not shown on rueglur networks. I know that theres a specaitfic show that I like on Comdy Central that I watch from now and again. I just don't want South Park and Crack Yankers to go off the air for stuff that happens on TV. I know its mostly about what happen on the SB but if they start going around a canceling other shows for what happen I'll be PO'ed. I really don't watch MTV that much anymore because its not like the olden days. I loved MTV back then but now i can't stand it. Its stupid. Sorry if anyone here likes MTV. I only watch it for when Cribs are on. I like to see Celebs. house. Some r pretty cool. I say go FCC (even tho I don't care about it) but maybe we can see more of the Muppets. Just hope that comes w/ it. Just hope.

    One reason to like Jessica

    Hi, I'm new here.
    I saw the "Step away from the Frog!" one and howled. I am not a Piggy fan because she never gets that Kermit is not interested. This commercial proved this to all and I LOVED it! She may be ditzy, but she served a good purpose for this ad. I would love to see the rest of them. I am sorry I missed the Animal part. :halo: I also don't get the NFL channel, or I would DVR (think TiVo) the whole showing.
    Thanks for this forum, I am a new addict. :)

    As for the Janet/Justin thing, I would not be surprised if it was staged. The good thing to come out of this is MTV may not produce the halftime show anymore. Maybe we will get some talent AND entertainment put together. Josh was fantastic, but most of the rest was boring (and I was in a room of musicians). BTW, was Aerosmith in the space suits because they were getting fit for their cryogenics cases? :confused:

    :flirt: JOSH GROBAN :flirt:

    The tribute to the Shuttle crew was SO touching, and his song was very appropriate for the occasion. It's hard to believe that they've been gone for a year already. It's also hard to believe that the first shuttle explosion was.....13 years ago? :cry: I think it's been longer, but it's hard for me to remember.

    My friend, Lisa, came to see me at work today. Her husband is a "big-whig" for the local hall where we have events (concerts, shows etc...) I was complaining to her that tickets for my other hearthrob, John Mayer, are $36.00! :eek: Don't get me wrong, I LOVE John, but I just can't afford the $36.00 plus the "fees" that go with the tickets.........guess who is going to get to go for FREE????? YEAH!!!!! :excited: Lisa said that her kids don't want to go to anything anymore, they're all in their late teens. She gets 4 tickets to EVERYTHING that comes to the hall, so she gave her tickets to David Coperfireld away, she gave her tickets to Kid Rock away, and she didn't know who to give her John Mayer tickets to........I'm SO excited! She gets GOOD seats too! I told ther the only time I'll ever BEG her is if Josh ever comes here.

    Aerosmith and kt......


    :cry: !!:eek: :mad:
    KT, why must you be so harsh to "my boys"? Everything I have is Aerosmith. Music, pictures...........my tattoo. They've played a HUGE part in my high school and college days. They have been the soundtrack to my life.....and you go and make fun of them :cry:
    what'd they ever do to you? (pout) :cry:

    P.S. You know I'm just giving you a hard time. Had to joke with you, sorry if you took offense.

    Golly, it's becoming Jackson family tradition to have their body parts investaged these days. :o
    Actually, I had originally thought that Janet was going to do the half-time show to stand up and help her brother to tone down the madness.
    She needed to prove that their family is truly not the Porno lovin/under-aged obsessed freaks that society is saying that they are.
    Well, thank goodness that nothing embarrassing happened that would futher discredit their family name. :rolleyes:

    I remember watching the Super Bowl in Jr. High. Our church youth group had a Super Bowl party. We ordered a dozen pizzas from Little Caesars and watched the game. It was fun, there was nothing too wild or offensive.

    It was amazing that CBS would allow them to perform a song like that.
    The lyrics say exactly what would happen and it did.
    I agree with the comedians that said 'costume malfuntion' means that the other side didn't come off.
    The Wiggles had a half-time show and I turned on CBS, so I could see the Muppets and still didn't see them.

    Sigh, I may sound a bit grumbly, :grouchy: but I wanted to see the muppets and ended up seeing a strip show.
    They played highlights of the commercials all day. They showed The Simpsons commercial a lot, but NO muppets! :boo:

    MasterCard Commercial!

    Well, guysmiley4ever,

    Guess what I just saw? It's the MasterCard commercial where it shows this DISGUSTING hotel room. The voice says something like "Room service, maid service, laundry service, $160.00" As the voice is saying this they pan around the room and it looks like a tornado went off in the place. They they pan to the bed and the voice says "Living like a pig...........Priceless". And guess who is sitting on the bed, reading the newspaper with her hair in a towel when she yells at the announcer just as he says the "living like.....: line? That's right, it's our FAVORITE girl! Miss Piggy! :mad: It's too bad they have her as the mad icon here, but you get the idea. I'd not seen that one last night during the game. I'm watching "Food Network" right now, so if you have that channel, you may want to watch it to catch this ad. It's GREAT! :excited:

    But if they hadn't done that, then people wouldn't have anything to make a big deal about until some singers kiss again!

    Superbowl "stunt"

    I'm glad to se that so many people are open-minded about the "stunt". Yes, there were probably millions of children watching, and church groups.....but we shouldn't be so up-tight about our bodies! Don't be ashamed, it's what (whatever creator you believe in) gave us! Be proud! You are beautiful! Eventhough I've gained a few pounds lately, I still run around the house in my "birthday suit" and I'm proud of myself. Sorry to share that much with everyone ( :o ), but we as humans just shouldn't be ashamed! Heck, if we were raised in some European countires, nobody would've paid attention. You should've seen my host family I lived with in Greece........they would've been ashamed that is wasn't MORE! :eek: LOL!

    Funny. That's what a lot of visitors to the Henson Company end up saying when they get the directions to the Chaplin Studios wrong ! :halo:
