Job site CareerBuilder is expected to advertise again at the Super Bowl 2011, but there is no official confirmation. Animal right organization PETA is though already up in arms as they believe that CareerBuilder is producing a Super Bowl ad for 2011 that stars chimpanzees. CareerBuilder ran wacky ads with chimpanzees back in 2005 and 2006 and stopped after the public outcry got too big.
Hollywood star Anjelica Huston is leading the charge and asks CareerBuilder not to feature chimpanzees again. PETA says that chimpanzees used in the entertainment industry are physically abused and torn away from their mothers when they are babies. More details on PETA.
We will see how CareerBuilder will react and which kind of Super Bowl ad they will run at the end on February 6th, 2011. They definitely got some very early attention on their Super Bowl ad.
For a list of the current official and rumored Super Bowl ads for 2011 check out our Super Bowl Ads 2011 Guide.
Just like last year, I4U News will be featuring again the Super Bowl for Geeks Guide. Of course the Super Bowl 2011 for Geeks Guide will be all about the Super Bowl Commercials and not the big game. The Super Bowl XLV will take place in the Dallas Cowboys stadium on February 6th 2011.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
