Tim Tebow's ad may not be the only controversial commercial shown during the Super Bowl.

According to Fox News, CBS is considering running an ad for a gay dating website during the game. The ad is from, which promotes itself as a place "where many many many men come out to play."

The ad was reportedly submitted to CBS on Jan. 18, and it remains under review, according to a network spokesperson.

Fox News reports that the commercial features two men excitedly watching a sporting event on television before brushing hands while reaching for a bowl of chips. The two then begin to make out, much to the shock of another friend sitting nearby.

A representative from the website told Fox News that it believes CBS has no intention of running the 30-second commercial and is attempting to ward off a backlash from gay advocacy groups by not rejecting it.
