Tim Tebow Super Bowl Ad: Watch

As predicted here for the past few weeks: As seen in the pre-game show, the Tim Tebow Focus on the Family Super Bowl ad is quite benign in form, tone and content, with the instant reaction on Twitter largely along the lines of "Was that all?"

Watch for yourself (via HuffPo, with a better version up when I find one).

  1. I love it. It's so sweet. There is nothing cuter than an insanely HOT Tim Tebow and his mom.

  3. It sounds like they made 2 commercials, b/c HuffPo is saying a 2nd ad will air during the Super Bowl.

  4. Yes. There are two. The 2nd part will air during the 1st quarter.

    Can't wait to see it!!

  6. Yep the ad was definitely not controversial at all. Tebow definitely didn't say anything controversial either. FoF might be controversial, but that ad definitely wasn't. It's like critcizing athletes that endorse Nike for the sweatshops they run.

  7. Saw the second ad! It was great!! LOL at the liberal bed wetters! They must be chewing their hands off in embarrassment, getting their panties in a wad over these two sweet ads. I absolutely LOVED them..and the interview with Bob and Pam on FOTF's website is beautiful. LOVE THIS FAMILY!

  8. Just say the FOF ad for superbowl. WTF is all the chatter about? This was harmless and innocent. If there wasn't so much pre publicity about it I would have scratched my head wondering what is the point? I hope everyone who was against this ad is now embarrassed.

  9. NOW and Gloria Allred tried to paint Pam Tebow as a liar and all it accomplished was it revealed their true agenda (pro-abortion and not pro choice) and generated a lot of publicity for the Tebow ad. The controversy made Pam and Tim Tebow household names.Isn't that ironic?
    The ads were great but I liked the pre-game ad better. It is so touching to see a loving mother and son relationship.

  10. I thought the commercial was really well done and respectful, and in itself wasn't controversial at all.

    But it did really make tebow seem almost like a FoF spokesman to me... which really was the last thing I wanted given some of their views. So on that front I was really disappointed.

  11. Syed, a problem with your logic is that when athletes endore Nike they're often endorsing a single product from a corporation that makes products. What was Tim endorsing there? Why does FotF need a commercial except to spread their message.

    "Why does FotF need a commercial except to spread their message."

    When news of this ad first broke, the articles stated that FoF approached the Tebows about doing the ad, not the other way around. This one ad hardly makes Tim a spokesperson for the group.

    The ad appears to have been made to promote the crisis pregnancy & post-abortive info found on the FotF site. B/c of the link to the FoF site, the big 'message' I saw being 'spread' from this ad was simply this: 'if you have an unwanted pregnancy, there's help for you'. That's it.

    I'm sorry but that doesn't matter what so ever. Who seeked out who doesn't make any difference. If you're making a commercial advertising for something (And that's exactly what it was. It was an ad for FoF) you then become a bit of a spokesperson for that company.

    Honestly that's the truth, in any other situation you would probably say the same thing... but I'm willing to bet a bit of bias is clouding your judgement. (Which everyone deos)

  14. Interesting, if someone wants to place a pro-life advertisement the world gets into an uproar, but if you post a commercial with illicit sex or rape violence you are deemed "mainstream", pathetic the moral decay of this country.

  15. Just because i'm curious JM. What commericals have "rape violence" in them?

  16. I remember most outlets were describing the ad (before it aired) as "highly charged". That described their coverage much better than the ad.
