Every year I watch the Super Bowl ads, hoping they’ll get better. I write about the ads because so much attention is paid to them, and they cost huge amounts of money. For Super Bowl 2017, the cost is $5.02 million for 30 seconds.
While last year I saw a small improvement in the ads, fewer sexist and ageist ads, violent ads continued to dominate this year, which along with the violent football game, is questionable TV viewing for kids.
However, one new disturbing type of ad emerged – T-Mobile’s ad featuring pain and sexual pleasure.
