Wrestling giant the WWE has come out swinging against rockers Maroon 5’s Super Bowl half time show with a new ad featuring “boos” and catcalls over a photo of the band’s frontman, Adam Levine.
The wrestling league took aim directly at Maroon 5’s Levine with an ad asking why anyone would bother with the band’s Super Bowl show when during the same time slot WWE fans could watch its six-man tag match featuring Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, and Adam Cole teaming up to face off against Aleister Black, Ricochet, and Velveteen Dream.
The WWE ad even showed a photo of Adam Levine with “boos” calling out as the image appears on screen.
Halftime Heat will air on the WWE Network, but it will also appear on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and the WWE app.
Oddly enough, a day after posting the video, the WWE deleted its ad featuring Maroon 5 and put out a second one without the photo of Adam Levine in it.
