F*ck the Packers: Remembering classic KBPI Super Bowl prank ad (PHOTOS)

No, the Broncos aren't in the Super Bowl -- but a memory from the time when they were has just surfaced. It's an ad taken out in a Green Bay newspaper to taunt the Packers, who Denver would go on to defeat in the 1998 Super Bowl. When seen in its entirety, the copy seemed pretty benign -- but when folded, the phrase "Fuck the Packers" and an extended middle finger magically appeared. Those were the days! Check out the photos below.
