Porn interrupts Super Bowl broadcast

New, comment

Talk about a climax: Viewers watching the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl on Comcast cable in Tucson, Ariz., saw 10 seconds of porn that somehow made its way onto the broadcast following Larry Fitzgerald's dramatic 64-yard touchdown catch late in the game. (Link to video after the jump).

Immediately following the TD, instead of a replay, some Tucson area Comcast viewers got an eyeful of some full frontal male nudity from Club Jenna, an adult cable station. The porn flick images lasted anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds, according to which reports you read.

KVOA-TV in Tucson apologized and said that the porn was shown on the non-high definition feed of the game. The station says it is investigating, and the station has received calls from outraged parents. There was this description from an eyewitness on an Arizona message board:

It was pretty bad. A Keith Urban-type guy is sitting down, and there's a woman next to him and she appears to have her hands down his pants. Then he gets up, and his pants drop, and there's a full reveal. It happened right after the Cards' last touchdown, so I wonder if there was a hacker/steelers fan on the loose at Comcast.

Had I been watching in Tucson, I would have been more bothered that the game was interrupted by straight porn. Boring!

Here is a VERY NOT SAFE FOR WORK link to the video feed of Fitzgerald's TD, followed by Club Jenna.
