Comcast Gives $10 Coupon To Super Bowl Pecker Peepers

Comcast is giving a $10 service credit to every Tucson customer whose Super Bowl viewing was interrupted by a porno snippet, but you have to call in. The number to call is 1-888-315-8219. A thorough system review indicated there was no technical glitch, “suggesting someone deliberately seeking to interrupt the broadcast rather than a technical glitch,” wrote WSJ. US Attorney General spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle said, “We take this matter seriously.” The pancake pupcake pile said, “You can call me nanerpus, nanerpus.”

    NANERPUS!

    booooo for linking to a story requiring registration

  6. noorct says:

    wow. that should cover the joy of getting to watch some guy slap his dick around on his thighs with your mother and 10-year old daughter.

  7. Davan says:

    Its just a dick. Unclench, people.

    • samurailynn says:

      @Davan: I can handle accidentally seeing a dick. However, I really don’t want to handle accidentally seeing a dick with my parents in the room. Or other people’s kids. I didn’t say I can’t handle it, but I don’t want to. Fortunately, I don’t live in Tucson and I didn’t watch the Superbowl.

      • Davan says:

        @samurailynn: Thats the problem – it shouldn’t be the kind of thing that people have to get “prepared” for. Its a natural part of human anatomy. If we all walked around au natural, we would all see dicks every day. Kids, old ladies, even Jerry Falwell. But we don’t, so a little dick on the TV and all of a sudden parents have to reschedule their “sex talk” with their kids. Come on.

    • Traveshamockery says:

      @Davan: On this one, the “anti-fundies” have already been far worse than those people they call repressed, sex-o-phobes. Seriously, people, it was totally inappropriate and unacceptable that a porn movie came on during the game. People who object to it aren’t mentally deficient and don’t have an overgrown sense of morality. Nudity doesn’t belong everywhere, and certainly shouldn’t be thrust* upon anyone without their consent.

      *snicker :)

    If you know of any other organizations that would like to pay me for watching porn, feel free to contact me.

    Best. Picture. Ever.

  10. mad3air says:

    I wish I lived in Tucson based on that picture alone… NANERPUS!

  11. IT-Chick says:

    @dlynch:

    Did not have to register…

  12. charlah says:

    Compare this to the hoops and fines imposed because of the Janet Jackson thing a few years ago. DOUBLE STANDARD.

    • KhaiJB says:

      @charlah: give it time… the fines are a coming.

      • Pylon83 says:

        @KhaiJB:
        I’m not sure what authority the FCC wold have here. The content wasn’t over broadcast, and the FCC has very limited jurisdiction over cable TV. The only conceivable way the FCC could get involved would be to claim that since it was a broadcast signal they were passing through that was affected, they have ancillary jurisdiction over the matter. I’m not sure that will hold up though.

    “Pecker peepers” makes me want to rework the old “Peter Piper picked” tongue-twister. Fun!

  14. nevets68 says:

    Porn = blah

    But nanerpus rules!
    I’m soooooooooo making one (or 2).

  15. howie_in_az says:

    What about if your porn was interrupted by the Superbowl?

  16. ZukeZuke says:

    Best story title of the week!

    It’s only Tuesday, so you got room for improvement! :)

  17. Hello_Newman says:

    There’s a torrent on pirate bay now showing it. I can see how if someone had young girls watching that they’d be really freaking out. $10 is such a joke, instead of sending everyone $10 they should have given $50 to those customers who complained.

  18. macbeth1 says:

    Wow Comcast really blew it. The locals will be making money off that hand over fist. That game SUCKED DICK! The catch is that when you get your money the cashier rubs it all over your face.

    Tip your waitress.

  19. Stephen Byer says:

    I called the number from Chicago, and the computer voice said that it had my account information from my phone # and that a $10 credit would be applied to my account.

    Did I just get paid not to watch something that didn’t happen here??????

  20. astroglide says:

    By the way, I think the voice of Nanerpus is Trevor Moore from The Whitest Kid U Know.

  21. EdnaLegume says:

    I found the commercial “incident” and man, that’s the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen.
    Granted I voluntarily viewed it, sans children and elderly folk.

    The best prank indeed.

    • HogwartsAlum says:

      @EdnaLegume:

      It WAS pretty damn funny. I watched it last night when I got home.

      Although people I’ve talked to about it thought it was funny also, some of them said they would have been really embarrassed if their kids and grandmas had been in the room.

  22. AtomicPlayboy says:

    Man, if I had to pay $10 to everyone who’d see my junk without asking to, I’d be needing a bailout. Poor Comcast.

  23. Blueskylaw says:

    Offer $10 for devastated people, don’t advertise it, spend no money, congratulate self with pat on back and large bonus for job well done.

  24. reynwrap582 says:

    Christ… $10 per person may not be much individually, but when you multiply that by the thousands of people who are getting credited for it, it adds up quite a bit. It’s likely going to be in the hundreds of thousands if not more, that’s a good bit of money to pay for a technical glitch.

    Otherwise, what are people getting compensated for? I mean, holy ****, some parents might actually have to TALK to their children for once about a serious issue. It’s the Bill Clinton BJ thing all over again… How many of these parents are going to put their children in therapy over this incident? If anybody was really dealt serious trauma and requires therapy after this, then by all means, feel free to file individual lawsuits against Comcast for damages, but I don’t see why Comcast should have to drive itself into bankruptcy over a 15 second cock-up (pun intended). 99.8% of the people are over it by now, .19% are just wackos looking to profit off a non-event and the other .01% may have a viable complaint and are free to pursue that on their own.

  25. FuryOfFirestorm says:

    If I got $10 for every dick waved in my face, I could pay off the national debt, fix the economy, and buy Switzerland!

  26. chenry says:

    I love the picture of the pancakes and bananas.

  27. Xero says:

    In my opinion, that service was VERY Comcastic! Hehehe…

  28. Benny Gesserit says:

    That headline came this close || to being of British Tabloid level.

  29. bbvk05 says:

    I saw it live in Tucson on gameday. Would have been really funny except a 6 year old girl was at the house I was watching it in. Fortunately its really obviously porn and seeing it early I swiftly moved to turn the TV off pre-phallus.

    It was obviously intentionally done by somebody. It was timed after a big play where everyone would run to the TV and be watching carefully. ha.

  30. catnapped says:

    So should we expect Comcrap to come looking for a bailout soon?

  31. Cranky Customer says:

    I honestly don’t think I’d bite at the $10 bait. For one thing, I’d be worried that Comcast was tricking me into considering the $10 credit as compensation IN FULL for the incident, thereby cutting-off any chance I had to join a lawsuit, etc. — or get an even larger offer down the road.

    It’s Comcast.
    They’re evil.

  32. Meathamper says:

    @Davan: Finally, some sense around here!

  33. ageshin says:

    I think that comcast should give every viewer a free one month subscription to the porno site, and write the whole thing off as a special promotion.

  34. Benguin says:

    I’m mad because my cable provider DIDN’T give me free porn during the Super Bowl.

    Damn you, U-Verse!

  35. Ysa says:

    Of course it wasn’t a technical glitch, someone either hit the wrong button on the board or mis-routed a signal.
    In case this hasn’t been explained already let me give a simple run down of how the Superbowl magically got everyone’s TV via Comcast.
    NBC had the game this year so they shot it. NBC then sent it live to every NBC network affiliate over satellite. Those affiliates then aired the game which is sent passively by microwave to the transmitters (for people with antennas), to the local cable company, and to DISH/Direct TV/whatever other consumer satellite companies are out there.
    This gives three points for the porn to happen in. Since people nationwide didn’t see it, that rules it out on the network level. Since people without cable didn’t see it, that rules out the affiliate. So we know it happened at Comcast.
    The technology has changed quite a bit from the days of the HBO/scramble signal hijack and the “Max Headroom” hijack and outside interference just doesn’t do it anymore.
    My original stance was that an operator was watching the porn and hit the wrong button taking it to air – I’ve relaxed that somewhat and I can buy that someone mis-routed, especially after viewing the footage. I’m wondering if that clip wasn’t from one of the pay channels and the signals got crossed.
