Candy and a Threesome…

Super Bowl commercials have become arguably as big, if not bigger, than the Super Bowl itself.  Whether it is the Half Time show, or the ads, the Super Bowl has slid further and further away from family values over the past few years.  Given this, I was surprised that the Half Time show didn’t involve deeply sexual references, quasi satanic imagery, or the ever provocative “nipple-slip” (except for Flea’s full nipple-slip).  Ok, but what about the ads?   Well, it seems the most controversial ad was Coke’s version of “America the Beautiful,” but should it be?

I’ll be honest, I was half paying attention once the game failed to be watchable and the announcers were pontificating on whether Peyton Manning would actually make his retirement announcement during the second half of the game.   Then, as my wife and I were talking during a commercial break, an ad came on TV for Nestle’ Butterfinger Cups (you can watch the clip below):

My wife looks at me and says, “Did they just make reference to having a three-some in a candy commercial?”  We couldn’t believe it.  What is even more ironic is no one talked about this the next day.  The Huffington Post wrote an article that generated zero comments (which doesn’t bode well for this article).  Maybe it’s just my wife and I, but I think that it is sad that we’ve become so desensitized that this is just thought of as a funny commercial these days.  My guess is no one will care next year when Little Debbie Cupcakes releases their ad eluding to sodomy.
