Tebow’s Super Bowl ad hardly worth the stir

The most anticipated Super Bowl ad came and went on Sunday night without causing the stir many people thought it would. In fact, it’s safe to say that one could have seen it and still completely missed its message.

Leading up to the Super Bowl, the conservative group Focus on the Family put together a 30 second ad starring Tim Tebow and his mother, in which the former Heisman Trophy winner’s mom talks about how she nearly lost him during her pregnancy. The commercial sparked debate before it was even broadcast because of its expected anti-abortion overtones.

Here’s the ad:

When I first heard about the ad, I thought it was going to be an in-your-face message speaking out against abortion. Instead, the ad was light – almost hokey even, and I thought it did its best to steer away from controversy. It makes you wonder what all the fuss was about before it aired. (Although I get why some people didn’t want it to be shown when they first heard about it.)

On a related note, did anyone else feel as though the commercials for the Super Bowl this year were average at best? The laughs came and went for me after Betty White was trying to run a dig route over the middle of a tackle football game and got plastered. But even that one fizzled at the end.

I must admit the Doritos samurai guy was pretty funny too, although anyone that had a full laugh come out of their mouth during that Bud Light auto-tune commercial featuring T-Pain needs to be beaten with a sack of dirty underwear. The same goes for that beaver ad.
