This year's Super Bowl ads largely ducked controversy ― with perhaps one unexpected exception. A Spokeswoman for the Post wouldn't give Adweek a comment about the allegations in Page Six.

The Post reported that the paper purchased the ad time last week after it was made available and produced it in that time.

Jeff Bezos pulled a $20 million Super Bowl commercial for his space exploration company, Blue Origin, due to his relationship with Lauren Sanchez.

After a lackluster offensive performance by the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams in the first half, Bud Light provided at least some fireworks in the second half.
