Thank you, Domers, for all of your submissions to OSN’s One Second Chance Super Bowl Contest. They were all terrific. Choosing a single video to represent the love you all have for OSN to be seen by billions of viewers worldwide during the Super Bowl was extremely difficult, and was only made more so by the outdated policies of the FCC and the Fox Network’s obstinacy.
The winning video, "monkeys bangin," received three times as many votes as the second place clip and we looked forward to seeing it during the Super Bowl.
When we sent the clip to the Fox Network, however, they refused to air it on the grounds that it fell short of their minimum time requirement for commercials. We then sent them an extended version (at great cost to us), essentially a 30-second loop of said monkeys, but were then informed by the FCC that 30 seconds of simulated monkey sex violated numerous broadcasting statutes and "commonly-held standards of decency."
Domers, given the choice between submitting a clip that you did not select as your favorite and boycotting the farce that is Super Bowl advertising to prove a point, we chose the latter. We hope that you understand our decision. We would, however, like to point out some of our personal favorite and most popular submissions.
Make sure to watch tonight's SportsDome. We've got all the deets on the Super Bowl plus breaking news about Shaq's trade to the Mavericks in order to be broken down and used for parts.

Although your ads did not air during the Super Bowl, they are being mentioned in a blog post about the Super Bowl, which is pretty close.
In the meantime, keep it glued to the Dome. We’ve got plenty more contests coming up, including our “Submit an Idea For An OSN Contest Contest,” in which you the fans come up with the idea for a contest.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered. You are all Domers.
