Doritos. Hyundai. Coca-Cola. Budweiser. And a hilarious one from Monster.com. These were the nice ads during yesterday’s Super Bowl (despite the $3 million price tag). If you missed any of them, AdAge has the full dossier.

However, the one not on that list – and the one destined to never see a whiff of television broadcast – was from Fidelis, a Chicago-based Catholic organization that was given the Heisman from NBC when told, “Yeah, we aren’t airing advocacy ads.”

The advertisement in question? A :30 animated sonogram of a baby with a story, and who would be president. Yeah, they thought it would be catchy to use Barack Obama’s story as the epicenter of this ad. Think they want a redo on this one, or was this by “intelligent design”? After all, just consider what they can do with that truckload of cash not spent; yet, they are still getting all this press.

The focus is for people to imagine the potential of every human life; however, do you see potential or just a cheap advertising ploy to get folk talking about an age-old agenda? You be the judge, click on the TV below and enjoy:

    I’m glad they did not show it just the church telling people how to live there live

      True, but isn’t your opinion suggesting the other side of how people should live? While Christians are permitted to say whatever they want – like anyone else – it’s how they say it that makes them effective. And I don’t this commercial would have been. That said, I agree with you. I’m glad it didn’t air either.
