Super Bowl Ad with Kevin Federline Offending Fast-Food Workers

Britney Spears soon to be ex-husband, Kevin Federline, got work in an upcoming Super Bowl advertisement for Nationwide Insurance. The problem is that the National Restaurant Association is offended by having him act like he is working at a fast food restaurant while daydreaming about one day becoming a rap star.

The commercial shows Federline going from a rap superstar to a short order cook at a fast food restaurant. The Nationwide ad slogan is “Life comes at you fast.”

Annika Stensson, a representative for The National Restaurant Association, openly complained in letter to Nationwide CEO Jerry Jurgensen saying that the ad with Federline could have been depicted with him holding an unemployment check if his career went south. Stensson said, "It shouldn't be necessary for a company to disrespect others to get its point across. ...It's a negative, unfair and inaccurate reflection. It's not Kevin we take issue with, but the depiction of where he ends up."

If you can’t wait until Super Bowl Sunday you can watch it online at Nationwide’s website on the 29th of January.
