An Arizona TV company has described itself as "dismayed and disappointed" that some cable viewers of its Super Bowl feed were treated to a short excerpt from a grumble flick "just after the last touchdown by the Arizona Cardinals". According to the BBC, the offending clip "showed a woman unzipping a man's trousers, followed by a …
Reminds me of that Max Headroom thingy from years gone by when the Dr Who got taken over lol
May as well disable comments for this one, Lester. Doubt anyone will top that "wide receiver" strapline. Well done, sir !
...was the ball fumbled?
"showed a woman unzipping a man's trousers..."
Another "wardrobe malfunction"
Best sub head ever..
It's right up there :)
Pictures or it never happened
We all know if an NRA operative didn't take a photograph, then it never happened!
Uhm, a cockup? Eeeh...!
Not much more to say really. Will leave fellow El Reg readers to add additional penial puns involving such fine tags as stiff, hard, penetrate and more.
Paris, because in such a situation, she would reward her naughy staff with a big raise...
Well, let's face it, you'd need something to break up the absolute monotony of American "Football"! Hell, even I'd watch it if it were interspersed with pron!
Roll on the Test Match: "She was only the batsman's daughter, but she could take a full toss in the crease!"
... it's just replacing one lot of bollocks (Superbowl) with another set (Grumble flick)?
Purely coincidental that one of the companies involved is "Cox Communications" :-)
Paris, because she's only seen a cockatoo
It was another godaddy.com commercial.
Tyler Derden strikes again :)
Not a first by any means
There was the case of some guy in an apartment block who like to video himself in grumble mode, and piped it into the back of his TV from where it leaked back into the rest of the building's cable network, treating his neighbours to views of new and unknown places.
How many people rang their cable operator to complain and how many to enquire how they subscribe to the channel concerned
Bet the latter outweighed the former
...this sort of puts wardrobe malfunctions with nipple glimpses and and the infamous "Godaddy.com" commercials into some form of context.
IT angle? Well this event could have been avoided if they had ID cards, Biometric Passports and Phorm installed.
it was the terrorists
someone had to say it
9 inch gain with good penetration by the female tight end, surely?
shome mistake surely
I thought "great Brazilian" referred to soccer ...
As an American...
I'm annoyed that more is made of such tomfoolery than is made of gratuitous violence.
There was a television info-mercial the other evening where someone was asking if "that certain part of a man's anatomy" could be broken. The presenter stated that yes, "that part of a man's anatomy" can indeed break. WTF is wrong with saying "penis" on late-night television, cable or otherwise???
Didn't something like this happen a few months ago? I think it was Australian football or rugby, but can't remember the details.
... to break open the Playmobil box, me thinks

Because the part of the anatomy they are talking about isn't the penis, silly! They never do say what part is being enlarged, or enhanced, or whatever. My guess is either the liver or the belly. Or perhaps the kidneys. Or possibly the prostrate. But it sure the heck ain't the penis.
No, I'm not going to waste my money finding out.
Dear me! Does Playmobil do an "adult" range??? I must have missed out on that in my blatently sheltered youth...
sounds familiar cont.
Here we go, NZ not AU rugby: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/07/07/prime_tv_blunder/
Still AC, as my search history is NSFW.
Sure *beats* American football.
would'nt happen in Europe
In the mid nineties, when i were a lad and sailed the seven sea's with a yellow submarine,looking at pipelines (someone had to do it) we were dock in Den Helder on the German Dutch border, we had some nice video transmission kit on board to forward video links to a lay barge, although i had clearly labeled a video recorder "NO PORN VIDEO TRANSMITTER" i was sitting in a local coffee shop when the proprietor received a phone call, and promptly re-tuned the TV......
No one complained, When I said I'd have to go back to the ship and stop this, the gave me free weed to leave it on, 5 days of free weed no complaints talk about coals to Newcastle , bloody yanks complaining.
Not to worry...
It's only Neo jacking-in again... Agent Smith'll be along presently to sort it.
Mine's the one with the brand-new cellphone in the pocket. Still works dandy; only been dropped once.
@ Big Bear
I was thinking the conspiracy that resulted in the elicit broadcast, which was almost certainly a Terrorist attack involving Optimus Prime (explaining why he was barred from entry into the US).
What you where thinking? Pervert!
Glad I was all done with dinner or you would have owed me a new monitor and keyboard.
"Still AC, as my search history is NSFW."
Oops! Are you sure about that?
Rebecca get a clue. Film violence is fake. Nudity is not.
Lets face it though, almost everyone watching football probably settled for that because it was too early for porn. So no harm done.
and yeah...It sounds familiar too me too..I think another story like this did happen quite recently.
