Unless Tim Tebow decides to do his Super Bowl ad shirtless, the gays will probably not be all that enthusiastic about his anti-abortion ad being paid for by a group with a history of anti-gay hysteria.

in what seems like a play for publicity, ManCrunch.com, a gay dating site, has asked CBS to review an ad it wants to run during the big game. According to FoxNews.com, in the spot, two dudes are watching football and accidentally brush hands when reaching for a chip and then start making out. CBS hasn't yet reviewed the ad, and it's not clear if there are ad spots left.

The ad would be a reversal of recent Super Bowl ads that some people saw as homophobic, including a Snickers spot in which two mechanics, to the horror of an onlooker, end up kissing after chomping down on opposite ends of a candy bar.
