All Ashley Madison Could Afford for Super Bowl Advertising Is This Sleazy Newspaper Ad

Illustration for article titled All Ashley Madison Could Afford for Super Bowl Advertising Is This Sleazy Newspaper Ad

Ashley Madison, the attention-starved company that aims to facilitate extramarital affairs, has released a fairly gross, Super Bowl-themed print ad (what is this, 1985??) in the San Francisco Examiner. The ad features a lady ref wearing a mini-skirt. Two football teams leer at her while she flips a coin that, quite frankly, is far too large for her hand. Based on these unrealistic proportions, it seems pretty obvious that Ashley Madison's founder Noel Biderman has taken a time machine back to the middle ages and enlisted a monk who dabbles in graphic design to handle all of the Ashley Madison print ads.

Biderman claims that the the NFL rejected an Ashley Madison Super Bowl commercial directed by a Civil War-era daguerreotypist, but AdWeek is pretty sure that Biderman is full of shit — there's no way his company could afford such a pricey parcel of advertising real estate. So, to remind us that he's still lingering at an airport lounge for that special lady who will have a torrid love affair with him in his airport Hilton business suite, Biderman released a full-page newspaper ad, like a real lothario.

It looks more like a commercial for football players who have strange gang-banging fantasies about their refs.

Now THAT would be an excellent website...
