...I've been watching Superbowl coverage all day, starting recording coverage about ten minutes before the game started...I have yet to see MP's Subway commercial air, and it's about ten minutes left in the third quarter.

I'm starting to wonder if Subway pulled the plug. I hope I'm wrong.

I have a feeling they did. To be on the safe side. Though it'll be quite interesting if they included it. It might start convos on the watercoolers. But then again, the ad doesn't need to do that in this case.

I myself was wondering last night if they'd do that, but I don't know about the financial repercussions for them doing that so late in the game. But then, maybe they did have warning earlier last week and had time to pull it. Guess we'll know soon enough.

I have a feeling that if we don't see this thing air tonight, that could spell endorsement casualty #1. Maybe. Either that, or they're going to delay airing the ad till things simmer down a bit. But I shudder to think that what Superbowl airtime might have cost them. There's no way anyone in the Subway camp can be happy about this right now.

I was wondering the same thing. Early on, they did show a Subway commercial, but that was technically before it started, like during the pre-show. This site is posting all commercials as they air: http://www.hulu.com/superbowl

No Subway commercials are up yet, but if they do show one, it will be on that site.

Oh man, between the punching the Koala with the coffee mug, and then the guy in the blue ... thing... Brilliant!

Oddly enough, it looked like a Speedo.

I know! I didn't want to say it, cause in my little world, only guys that actually look good in Speedos wear them. *wipes memory*

That was the only one I really enjoyed! I was in tears laughing.

They pulled it. The lone Subway commercial was one I've already seen before. Uh oh...

i didn't watch all of the game. but i had a feeling they were gonna pull it. suuuuuucks

I watched the whole game. No ad. Granted, I don't think we ever had real confirmation that it was going to air during the game, but it seemed logical to me that it would have been the time to premiere it.

There is at the very least an initial print ad, it was in the SI Kids mag. But what happens after this, is yet to be seen.
