Porn clip interrupts Super Bowl broadcast

Last week, I live blogged the Wing Bowl while sitting in a booth at the Wachovia Center with the "Pink Vodka Girls."

This week, I am writing about a porn clip interrupting the Super Bowl broadcast for some viewers in Arizona.

I'm not sure when we took this turn here on Moving the Chains, and I'm not sure I like it, but here goes anyway...

The story goes like this. Comcast viewers in Tucson, Ariz., who were watching on KVOA TV, were celebrating Larry Fitzgerald's 64-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter one minute, and were watching a 10-second porn clip the next.

According to the Associated Press, the interruption occurred only on TVs that were not watching the high definition feed.

"KVOA will continue to investigate what happened to our clean signal and make sure our viewers get answers," KVOA president and general manager Gary Nielsen said in a statement to the AP.

One viewer, Joel Hilander, told the AP that he was watching the game with his kids when the interruption took place.

"I couldn't believe it. And I couldn't believe that my children were watching it either," Hilander said.

So there you have it.
