This commercial just screams class. The XFL figured that if they pushed the envelope on its cheerleaders, they could draw in some viewers. Because, you know, “Man stuff.”
But here’s the thing: The cheerleaders they put out weren’t even that risque. They were a little risque, but not risque enough that anyone outside of the “dirty old man” demographic would tune in just for the cheerleaders. Here is the cheerleader page for the New York/New Jersey Hitmen (Yes, that was really the team’s name).
This could probably still make the cut into pretty much any PG movie, which isn’t a good thing if sexy cheerleaders is one of your major selling points.
