October 5, 2010 · 1:22 PM EDT
Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold's (D) new television ad chastises his opponents for dancing in the end zone, but has gotten him into trouble with the National Football League. One clip had then-Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss acting like he was mooning the crowd at Lambeau Field.
"We did not license the footage and have contacted the Senator's campaign about removing it," according to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. The other football clips in the ad were not from NFL games.
Here's the link to Feingold's ad Number One.
2:25pm update: “We are making an edit to the ad to accommodate the NFL’s concerns," according to Feingold spokesman John Kraus.
