During the Super Bowl, a series of advertisements aired calling for a boycott of Tesla over its self-driving technology. The ads, funded by a tech CEO, specifically targeted Tesla's self-driving capabilities and criticized Elon Musk's approach to the technology. The campaign has drawn attention not only from the public but also from regulatory bodies, with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reportedly taking an interest in the matter, described as 'the wrong kind' of attention. Despite the controversy, Tesla itself did not participate in the Super Bowl advertising, making the anti-Tesla campaign a notable aspect of the event's commercial lineup.
