Yeah at the bobparsons's site, you can see the commercial in its entirety.

    Filming the commercial, Candice was given free reign to create the “Ms. Cappelli” character any way she wanted. “I made up the whole commercial,” Candice said. “The script is the part that said ‘It’s $8.95 for a year.’ Everything that was said after that, I made up. It was all me and whatever I could come up with.”

As was pointed out by CRZ in another thread (The W) there was a Budweiser ad that didn't even get a single airing for the same reason: because it poked fun at last year's Super Bowl half-time mishap. I think this bears repeating: the NFL was upset with these two ads [were there more?] not because they were indecent, not because they contained nudity, not because they contained foul language, but because they made fun of the NFL. So FOX becomes the second network (the Disney owned ESPN with its canceling of "Playmakers" being the first) to make it clear that it will not air anything that upsets NFL executives, regardless of whether or not that material violates any network standards.

Because that had nothing to do with the fact that Playmakers sucked? Maybe I'm missing something on that one though, so feel free to dig up their ratings and prove otherwise.

Happy to oblige:

In an era where few new shows are ratings successes each year, it is highly unusual for a network to cancel a show that generates solid ratings....The issue of whether ESPN must always be pro-professional sports because it covers professional sports was raised in a Dec. 1 Mediaweek column on sports TV. The decision to cancel the successful Playmakers appears to have answered that question.

You're welcome.

She was in HOTEL EROTICA? I saw that on Cinemax a few months ago.

Wow, where to begin? I guess I'll start at the back of Ron's head with the hair grown in from being shaved after the hunting trip but not at the same length as the rest of his hair.
