Citing policy on supplements, NFL nixes GNC's Super Bowl ad (The Associated Press)

Nutritional supplement seller GNC intended to use a 30-second Super Bowl ad to revamp its image. GNC said Tuesday it was notified that it will not be allowed to air the ad it created – or any ad – during the game Sunday because it violates an NFL policy against having supplements advertised during its games. A number of companies in the past have had to switch out or modify their Super Bowl ads because they were rejected due to their content.
