First, the Playboy Super Bowl party at the Playboy Mansion was cancelled.  Then the lingerie bowl was cancelled.  Now comes some very interesting news; not all the Super Bowl ads are sold!

Usually, Super Bowl ad space sell out months in advance.  Not so this year.  NBC was asking for $3 million starting for ads.  Turns out they have been selling for under the price mark.  In fact, with 4 days left, they still have 4 spaces left selling under $2.7 Million. 

This is gonna be a pretty well rated Super Bowl, but advertisers rather pass.  Even GM and others who have been putting ads on for over 10 years passed.  When the going gets tough, they sure turned into quarterbacks.-Dr.FB
