Super Bowl commercials 2013: PornHub ad rejected

CBS will not air a commercial for the adult video streaming service.

CBS rejected a 20-second Super Bowl advertisement from PornHub, a popular pornographic video sharing site.

The spot features an older couple sitting on a park bench enjoying a cold, but sunny day with a knowing smile on their face. As you can see for yourself, the PornHub advertisement features nothing that would otherwise be kept off prime time airwaves, just an affiliation with one of the web's largest porn sites.

This is not the first time a network has rejected a Super Bowl ad from a company catering to adults. In 2011, FOX rejected a spot from Ashley Madison, an online dating site catering to married men, that it deemed "not acceptable to air" on the network.

You can see the PornHub ad for yourself below, and it is totally safe for work in case you were hesitant to press play.

Well, what do you think? Should it have been banned or not?
