Ad Spots for The Big Game Are Sold Out, While One In Particular Was Turned Down
Fox has announced that ad time for this year’s Big Game is already SOLD OUT.
The network wouldn’t say how much they were selling each spot for but estimates say they were going for around $4 million apiece. That’s $200,000 more than the $3.8 million that CBS averaged per 30-second slot last year.
One ad you WILL NOT be seeing is an intense, pro-gun commercial from the firearms company Daniel Defense, which was reportedly rejected by Fox. Sources say they turned it down because the NFL doesn’t allow ads featuring firearms.
(GunsAndAmmo.com has the ad, and more information of the situation.)
This year’s Big Game will air on Sunday, February 2nd.
