Please show my 84-year-old butt to the world
Fox, the channel of family values, has nixed a Super Bowl commercial that displayed Mickey Rooney's butt. Leaving aside that I thought he was already dead (apparently not), Mickey must have had alot of cash riding on this endorsement, because nobody is more upset than he is:
What we're selling here is something I really believe in, which is an awareness of the germs we're all exposed to. There's nothing sensual about the brief exposure of my backside...
You can say that again.
