Shaker Sho sends along the following example of Assvertising with the note, "I saw this on the subway today."

[If you can't view the image, it's a pair of subway posters for a new SpikeTV scripted comedy series about college football called "Blue Mountain State." One has an image of a blond white woman in crop-top and short-shorts "riding" a giant football, accompanied by the text: "It's all about the scoring." The other has an image of a giant upside-down football helmet with the disembodied legs of a white woman coming out of it, accompanied by the text: "College football's never been dirtier."]

The show is highlighted on Spike's website with the image of a naked white woman from behind, covering her ass cheeks with pompons.

Spike (also home to the KBlogz-reviewed "MANswers") bills itself as "TV for Men." If I were a man, I do believe I'd sue for defamation of character.
