Yea, nothing political about the cut-glass popsicle company ad.

As for the boob shot, who cares, it was so fast, you couldn't see it anyway. We had to go to the TIVO on the SD set just to be sure we saw what we thought we saw. Even then, from the live 50 inch HD set, we were expecting to see a pastie. And on the HD set shown for less than one second, you sure as hell couldn't tell it wasn't.

VIOLENCE = GOOD

Any more questions?

So you and the children sat there during a song about "touching", and watched those two grope and dry-hump each other for the duration of the song, and yet didn't get them out of the room in time for the half-second pastie flash?

The problem lies NOT in the exposure of a skanky 40 year old's flabby bosom. The real problem lies in a PRECEDENCE which may be set by the stunt. And it really was a stunt, as anyone who has studied the replay will attest.

This year we see an old woman's breast.
Next year we see topless dancers in thongs.
The following year we see acts of intercourse. You get the idea.

If you don't nip it in the bud now, it will continue to degenerate as we all well know. No pun intended.

Why is anyone suprised by what occurred during an MTV produced show? This is the same kind of "entertainment" MTV broadcasts regularly. The same kind of "entertainment" that children and teens watch whenever they tune into MTV. I'd have been shocked if it was a clean, family-themed production. This started way back in 1994 when Michael Jackson spent the halftime show grabbing his crotch while being flanked by 2,500 children (or so). I wasn't shocked that's for sure. I actually spent the majority of halftime doing other things, but returned in time for Ms. Jackson If You're Nasty's exposure. Super Bowl halftime shows have sucked for a long, long time now and I try my best to steer clear of them.

about the Janet Jackson boobie. This country is so in the dark ages regarding our bodies and sexuality, puh-lease! If seeing that disturbed anyone or anyone's 10 year old, you've got seriuos issues & need to grow up and come in to the 21st century.

What we need to worry about is all the graphic violence in movies, video games, etc. But that's a different discussion for a different venue.

Hey Janet, nice rack, LOL!

I didn't even know it happened until this morning. I -->DID<-- remove myself and my 4 & 2 year old daughters from the room so we wouldn't see any of that halftime crap.

jambroni has it right - the real problem is precedence.

Ick. Definitely not a pastie. What was MTV thinking?!

Right on. The truth.com ad for the glass-shard popsicle company got aired also--certainly not noncontroversial.

The JJ stunt does, however, offer a revealing (pun unintended) insight into the CBS corporate view of society. With apologies to J. Mike Ferrara:

VIOLENCE = GOOD
SEX = BAD
POLITICS = SEX

;)
post #219 of 388
The more I think about it, I believe this was a conspiracy between Janet and Justin. They alone plotted this stunt and everyone else was unaware. What other explanation is there?
post #220 of 388
i guess it does not worry anybody that someone got past all that security and dropped trowl right in the middle of the field. and ran around in a jock strap.
post #221 of 388
Damnit!! Why Didn't Shania Twain do this last year??

I finally get to record a Super Bowl Halftime and this is what I have to look at? Even in HD it looked nasty, not the good kind of nasty.

Excuse me while I go boil my mind's eye.

I am bothered by having a man (OK, that guy was not much of a man, but bear with me) rip in a rough manner the clothes off a woman to the point that her breast falls out. Nipple cover or no, it was the (mimicked) sexually violent act that seems inappropriate for prime time viewing
I agree. I was not going to comment on this issue since no one else considered it as important as the boob. But it was a little unsettling to me to see a pop idol in prime time portraying an act of public sexual violence and getting away with it.

Breasts are harmless (and pretty). But I'm not sure we should educate our children that the proper way to get access to them is to violently rip someone's clothes off.

It was a lot less than you'd see at the beach with your family in most other countries in the world.
post #224 of 388
Take a look at the description published today in the New York Dailey news carried by my local paper here. They say:
"The halftime show at Super Bowl XXXVIII hit new levels of raunch: Rapper Nelly grabbed his crotch and Kid Rock came out wearing an American flag cut into a poncho."
post #225 of 388
Here's the point--this game was being watched by millions of young children. It was not just the boob, it was the entire content of the halftime show, very inappropriate for this audience. Very, very disappointed with CBS to sully such a great HD production with this MTV trash.

Thank you Rick. This is why our kids get confused we let them watch violent acts (football is second only to boxing) but shield them from the other thing that makes us human (sexuality). How about talking to your kids after they watch things on TV; oh I'm sorry we want the government to raise our kids. I have three girls, my wife and I take the approach of talking to them about what they see. Good relationships with your children will help them cope with the unmerciful peer pressure they are going to experience from kids that do not have good relationships with their parents.

Shame on Satan for telling Eve she was naked.
post #227 of 388
Justin claims that it was a malfunction of the clothing...yet, while he is OBVIOUSLY intentionally ripping it off, he is singing... "Gonna have you naked by the end of this song!"
post #228 of 388
skipping breakup of audio on LA cbs here too. Occasional video statics thruout game. Occured on ota and directv. Why so much more audio problems during halftime. different people and setup vs. bandwidth?
post #229 of 388
Are you suggesting that those of us that don't let our kids watch this crap are bad parents and do not have good relationships with them? Anyone that has any common sense and any awareness of culture and society knows without being told that football is a sport with strict rules that are ENFORCED when broken, while sexual displays to millions of people breaks even the most basic societal rules that separates man from animal.

What a bunch of BS....

We could argue about the "violent nature" of football, but the point above is on the mark: Those who would passionately argue that displays of overt sexuality 'harm' their children - that it debases human relationships and turns people into objects - seem to be blind to the equal harm done to children who watch violence that saturates the airways. The bottom line is the same

You cannot choose to be outraged over sexual displays on TV, and at the same time turn your cheek to the violence. Talk about Hypocrisy!

As a nod to the reason for this thread, I though the sound was poor in every way - dropouts, mix, hissy & boomy. The MTV-style camera work really stresses the MPEG encoders - lots of artifacts and blocking, videowise.

I'm just wondering what they will claim was meant to happen. I suppose they could say that there were two layers of clothing and that they both came off by accident.

It's no worse than Madonna and Brittney playing tounge hockey... I didn't see nearly as many complaints for that?!?!?!?

Janet does a racy bit and she's "desperate for exposure"
Maddona, who hasn't had a hit in almost a decade, does the lesbian lip lock and that's not a desperate grab for publicity?

"Janet has one of the weakest voices in pop" give me a break have you heard Brittney "sing" and I use that word loosely because she (Brittney) certainly can't.

Talk about your double standards.

And for the record, the Maddonna, Britteny kiss was
a) considerably longer than Janet's exposure
b) on MTV which according to Neilson -- attracts more of the under 16 audience than does the superbowl.

This thread has revealed a lot about the demographics (age/race) of this forum.
post #233 of 388
I am really put off by the bad taste here. This is a WORLD STAGE. That crap was classless, and showed an "udder" lack of taste.
It was PLANNED people, wake up. Nobody wears velco cups, pasties (or whatever), and sings "I'll have you naked, by the end of this song", RIP!
MTV even promised a "SHOCKING" halftime show. This reminds me of Lil Kims pastie covered tits at the MTV Movie awards AND the MTV Video awards. That's fine for cable (IMO).

I wonder how many young Boys will be trying that crap now that Justin Timberlake did it. I pity the fool that trys it on my Daughter.

You're kidding right? After their attention grabbing stunt we were inundated with it for about two weeks - on TV, in the papers and on the net.
post #235 of 388
How does being inundtated with repeats of the kiss equate to complaints on this forum????

I was not suggesting that. The disadvantage of using forums for expressing views is that sometimes sort text Reponses does not reflect what we really want to convey. For that I am sorry. What I wanted to express is that we forget what country we live in. If we really believe in freedom of speech and freedom of expression, than let us not complain about the rights of those that choose to express it. It is just as easy for us to turn off what we don't want to see or hear. If people don't mind seeing displays like what happened in the half time show than for first amendment sake they should have the right of way no matter how small that group is, or amend the constitution so the Government restricts what we say and how we express it. As for our children please read what I was responding to. The person that I was thanking brought up a good point, he was saying that if you had a problem with your kids seeing the exposure of Janet's breast what were they doing watching what lead up to the exposure in the first place. I would think parents would need to talk to their kids about what took place just before Justin ripped her top off or have them leave the room, or turn the channel. Censorship has no place in this country, self censoring does. Call things what they are or change what you call them. It is either Freedom of speech/Freedom of expression (it is really Freedom of the press) or it is something else.

Definetly planned.
Although the costum design and nipple jewelry make it appear planned, I think the both of them them looked very surprised nat the end of the clip. Another second or so of the clip may reveal (if you'll pardon the expression) more. Justin may have trying to grab her shoulder and turn her towrds him.

All that said, I'd give it 2 thumbs down.

I was disappointed in the audio and video dropouts. The acts were lame. Who cares about programmed controversy when the "entertainment" is over a decade old. Rhythm nation???? Gimme a break. All of the music was old, boring, and proves why alternate shows like the Lingerie Bowl are successful. I was entertained during the streaker thing. We rewound it a few times to verify what we were seeing. Pretty funny. To top this all off, I didn't even see the Janet shot. All of the HD recordings in previous postings have exceeded their bandwidth. Anyone have another shot? I just want to be able to speak intelligently about the subject at work :)

My thoughts exactly Patrick. How many girls are going to have that crap pulled on them now. Thank god for karate. And all you freedom of speech people go pound sand we are talking about children and they need us to protect them. Like i tell my kids the Constitution stops at my front door.
