I read this and had to pick myself up off the floor after howling with laughter.

PETA's Veggie Sex Super Bowl Ad Rejected By NBC (VIDEO)
Huffington Post | January 27, 2009 09:02 AM

The New York Post's Page Six reports that NBC has rejected a Super Bowl ad from animal rights organization PETA due to its hypersexualized nature:

NBC pulled the plug on a PETA pro-veggie commercial planned for the Super Bowl because it "depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards," according to NBC Universal's advertising standards executive, Victoria Morgan. The ad, which carries the tagline, "Studies Show Vegetarians Have Bet ter Sex," shows lingerie-clad stunners getting "intimate" with vegetables.

IT'S A VEGGIE VIOLATION

January 27, 2009 --

NBC pulled the plug on a PETA pro-veggie commercial planned for the Super Bowl because it "depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards," according to NBC Universal's advertising standards executive, Victoria Morgan. The ad, which carries the tagline, "Studies Show Vegetarians Have Bet ter Sex," shows lingerie-clad stunners getting "intimate" with vegetables. One shot depicts an actress "rubbing [her] pelvic region with pumpkin." Says a PETA rep: "PETA's veggie ads are locked out, while ads for fried chicken and burgers are allowed, even though these foods make Americans fat, sick and boring in bed."

:noWay: Vegetarians have better sex, and the commercial sure implies they are doing it WITH the vegetables. I suppose a cucumber would be easier than say some ground chuck, or a pork chop, but I sure can't see how that supports their purpose..... :squint:

Oh Jenn. Reading the sentence about pork chops made me think of meat items which CAN be used... Damn working at a photo developing lab, I'll be scarred for life.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!

And I would just like to say, that when I do have sex it is always fantastic and I have never been a vegetarian . . . nor do I do it with vegetables. Well except for that one old guy . . .

Wow, I didn't know vegetarians were supposed use veggies in all aspects of life. Those type of ads would just make not want to eat veggies, ever.

If I want to see something like that I'll just find a veggie porn site.

I posted about this on another board. I am glad it got pulled. So many families watch the Super Bowl together. I have a problem with PITA trying to get that played when children will be watching. I dont want to have to explain that to a 6 yr old girl. I do however love the Budweiser commercials with the horses. :dance: Very creative and fun to watch.

PETA never planned to get this thing aired.

Think about it for a second. How much money does a 30 second Super Bowl ad cost? Now, how much did PETA actually have to PAY to get the word out about that commercial? Controversy sells.

Agree 1000%!! My first thought while watching it was, dumbass you shouldn't have wasted your time. I was intrigued though, and had to see it.

Now I have TWO reasons to never eat your cooking. I don't want to know anything about where the veggies have been.

Demo, people do crazy things and take pictures of it. Then they get developed and the poor color correction person (aka me) sees them.

Therefore, I can tell you that veggies or not, you should not trust anyone's cooking. And it has nothing to do with lack of skills. *shudder*
