Outrageous, Funny, Sexy Commercials

But you will never see them on TV.

These Super Bowl commercials never made it to television. They were banned for being too sexy or too outrageous or too foul – in more ways than one. But if you’re not easily offended they are VERY FUNNY. Take a look at what over 100 million viewers never saw on their television sets during Super Bowl Sunday.

 

Budweiser – Skinny Dipping

A young guy and his pretty girlfriend find a beautiful swimming pool that appears to be deserted. So they decide to go skinny dipping. You’ve heard the saying, “All’s well that ends well.” Not in this case. Either for the unfortunate skinny-dippers or for the creative minds at Budweiser. This TV commercial never made it to the Super Bowl. It was labeled as too sexy and banned from TV in 2007.

Bud Lite – Where’s the Bottle Opener When You Need One?

There’s this guy who goes to a bar with a friend and the bartender has to leave for a few moments so the guy . . . Nope. If I tell you any more, it will spoil the surprise. Here’s a hint. A bottle opener plays a critical role in this television commercial that never made it to the 2006 Super Bowl.

Doritos – Man Runs Over Woman

Warning! This banned 2010 Super Bowl commercial is so outrageous it’s actually funny – unless you’re a sensible, sensitive human being.

Rolling Rock Beer – Baseball Game

This video starts out as a typical big league baseball game and quickly degenerates in an outrageous series of events as a hard hit ball ricochets off a steel pole and then manages to hit almost every male member in the stadium in their, ahem, members. Painful to watch and very funny but banned from the airwaves during the 2010 Super Bowl.

 

Airborne Cold Medication - Mickey Rooney and his . . .

I thought this commercial was rather benign but it was banned from airing during the 2008 Super Bowl. Still you got to give ole Mick credit. He will be 92 in September 2012 and he's still putting on a show. .

Miller High Life

This commercial was not banned. I included it because it aired during the 2009 Super Bowl although it was only one minute in length. One minute! Let’s see. At $250.000 for 3 minutes that would amount to about $833,333 and 33 cents. Talk about conspicuous consumption.

The KBG was the Russian secret service... but I would stay away from anything that used those three letters only. :)

Some of these were horrible, while others were very funny. I think the Rolling Rock Beer one must have been dreamed up by jr. higher's.

You're so right, Ivorwen. Why name a company after an intelligence agency that was so despised by the Russian people? Perhaps all the folks at KGB Mobile Apps and the KGB radio station in California, to name just two, were born after 1991.

Thanks for the visit.

Welcome, PaperNotes. Delighted these banned commercials entertained you. But I'm confused. Were you not feeling so good before or after you watched them? :)

Hi, susie, happy you appreciated the humor in these banned TV commercials. I know they are not everyone's cup of tea, but I thought they were just too hilarious to be ignored.

What about that Mickey Rooney? Still around and being funny.

Very funny and enjoyed these commercials so much. Especially the "butt naked" Micky Rooney, as I used to be Jan's (His wife) vocal coach. That's a side of Mickey I did not have the pleasure of seeing. :) Thanks so much for giving my laugh button a work out.

Delighted I gave your laugh button a work-out, Audrey, it's one of my favorite things to do. What a coincidence that you were his wife's (one of them) vocal coach. She must have been some time after Ava Gardner.

Loved your comment ... "a side of Mickey you did not have the pleasure of seeing." You pushed my laugh button with that one.

Thanks for finding this, Holle. Funny, how many women laugh at the Rolling Rock commercial, while the guys just wince and look pained. Very pained. Thanks for the up, m'luv.
