    GNC Ad Booted From Super Bowl Lineup Because of Banned Substances

    Usually, when a Super Bowl ad gets banned, it’s because it was just too raunchy or controversial. For rookie GNC, which was hoping to break into the big leagues with its first commercial on the big-game broadcast, it was neither. The National Football League banned the sports nutrition and supplement company’s 30-second spot because about 3 percent of GNC’s products contain two substances that are verboten in the NFL (the league has more than 160 substances on its banned list).

    Meet the Men Behind the Masks: Super Bowl 50′s Most Stylish Players

    This Sunday, February 7th marks the 50th NFL Super Bowl— a golden anniversary for one of the most expensive and profitable sporting events in U.S. history—with an average ticket price of $4,841. Both teams possess impressive rosters (with celebrity players like Peyton Manning and Cam Newton), nearly unbeatable rankings, and an abiding season-long fortitude that have propelled them both into limelight—on and off the field. For the Broncos, a team that built itself with a “win-now” mentality, since signing quarterback Peyton Manning in 2012, have proven themselves as one of the most feared defensive units in the league.

    What do NFL stars DeAngelo Williams, Benjamin Watson, and Jason Witten have in common? They have a perhaps surprising talent for styling pigtails, buns, and braids. The three players star in Pantene’s newest campaign, Dad-Do, which falls under the brand’s “Strong is Beautiful” umbrella and is about celebrating the next generation of strong women. Just in time for the Super Bowl, these dads have stepped off the field and in front of the camera for four how-to videos that feature them doing their daughter’s hair.

    Retouched CoverGirl Ad Calls Out Domestic Violence in NFL

    The retouched CoverGirl for NFL ad.  As one of the official sponsors of the NFL, CoverGirl created football-inspired makeup looks for every team, advertised with the slogan “Get Your Game Face On.” This weekend, the purple smoky eye inspired by the Baltimore Ravens got an unfortunate makeover. In the wake of the video revealing the team’s running back Ray Rice violently abusing his then-fiance, a Photoshopped version showing the CoverGirl model with a now black and blue eye has gone viral. On top of its visual impact, it takes to task the poor way in which the NFL, and more specifically commissioner Roger Goodell, has addressed the issue of domestic violence. After thousands of tweets and Facebook shares this weekend, the image has been changed by journalist Adele Stan with a new campaign message written across the top: “Boycott CoverGirl Official Sponsor of the NFL" until Roger Goodell is gone.” Trending hashtags this weekend included #GoodellMustGo and #BoycotttheNFL.  Adele Stan’s version with a new campaign message across the top.
