    Atleast they are still listed on "business Insider's poll.....& also ranked #1 there.

    ......Still something smells fishy. Why would they be removed from the official Poll when they were winning it?

    lol.. conspiracy at its highest level to stop a legitimate comeback.
    competition is good and when the competitors are afraid of you, it only means one thing.
    we've already back at their turf.

    I wonder if it was pulled because of complaints.

    There is a condition that patients or advocacy groups may have found its depiction in the commercial to have been offensive. Specifically the shot of the man with the elephant legs.

    That would be absurd. The character in the advert had actual elephant legs, not human legs swollen due to disease.

    BlackBerry Super Bowl ad debut inspired by Fantastic Four

    The inspiration actually came from the Marvel comic book characters, the Fantastic Four. The BlackBerry user in the commercial grows scaly, elephantine legs, similar to The Thing. He is set on fire without being burned, a take on the Human Torch. When he disappears in a burst of colourful dust, that was inspired by The Invisible Woman. The only thing he does not do is stretch like Mister Fantastic.

    OK. I'm not saying it was the reason. I'm wondering whether it was.

    Advocacy groups can be quite militant.

    Perhaps some people didn't see it that way.
    I'm proposing a possible reason for it being pulled. As I mentioned, advocacy groups can be very vocal.

    It is missing from here - Super Bowl Commercials from Feb. 3, 2013 - NFL.com The BlackBerry commercial was number one rated and now it has gone missing entirely from the ratings list. Number one spot apparently remains vacant.

    Samsung add was longer and paid a lot more for. Is it possible Samsung has something to do with this?

    Just seems strange that it would get pulled and the Go Daddy add is still up. Seems like a lot of people found that add disturbing.

    Voting goes on until 10 a.m. Monday morning, then the winner is announced!

    So why can't I find the BB ad now?
    Yeah I know, that's what the thread is about, the "why?"
    I'm just irritated out loud.

    Right.
    How come the commercial isn't on any best or worst list?

    TIME gave it a B-

    The hook here is that its easier to show you what a new phone cant do than what it can. This is one of those commercials thats clever in and of itself but probably wont make you want to rush out and buy the product (in this case, the new BlackBerry Z10). Rubber duckies never made a commercial worse, though.

    On the right side of the screen, click 3rd quarter. the BB ad is the third one on the slide.
