Banned Super Bowl Commercials You Will Never See on TV
S T O P !
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.

Funniest Super Bowl Commercials (that were not banned)

Advertisers are spending about $2,500,000 for each 30-second Super Bowl commercial and they believe the cost is fair. View my selections for the funniest ads of all time. Did they get their money's worth?
