Tucscon Superbowl Broadcast link.

This is the link to see what Comcast TV viewers in the Tucscon AZ area saw, with just under 3 minutes left in the Superbowl. It is NOT SAFE FOR VIEWING AT WORK. IT IS GRAPHIC. If you're an adult and wanna see what might be "The prank of all time," - click here. I do not condone the prank. As a broadcaster, I'm appalled. As a viewer, I'm shocked. This is real, and trust me, this story is just beginning.

The pornographic content that interrupted thousands of local Comcast subscribers’ Super Bowl broadcast was the result of an “isolated malicious act,” a company spokeswoman said Monday.
But company officials have yet to determine how that act was committed, spokeswoman Kelle Maslyn said, though any sort of equipment malfunction has been ruled out.
“We did an extensive preliminary check on our technical systems, and everything appeared to be working properly when the incident occurred,” Maslyn said.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Phoenix said it is looking into the interruption, which lasted about 30 seconds, and featured full male nudity.
“We take this matter seriously,” spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle said. “We’re working with appropriate agencies to review the incident.”
One of those agencies, the Federal Communications Commission, was not aware of any formal complaints made regarding the porn clip, FCC media relations director David Fiske said Monday afternoon.
It is still unclear how many viewers saw the clip, from a porn movie being shown on Shorteez, an adult cable channel offered by Comcast on a pay-per-view basis.
Only Comcast subscribers who received a standard definition signal could see the clip, while those who watched the game on high-definition televisions were not affected, Maslyn said.
Comcast is Southern Arizona’s second-largest cable subscriber, with more than 80,000 customers in unincorporated Pima County, Marana and Oro Valley.
Maslyn said the company is working on a plan to compensate customers, but nothing has been set in stone.
