PETA's Overtly Sexual Ad for the Super Bowl Banned by NBC
PETA is getting raunchy on me. This overtly sexual ad submitted by the animal rights organization to NBC to be aired during the upcoming Super Bowl, got banned because it was considered to be too damn racy.
Michael McGraw, spokesperson for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), notes:
"Lingerie-clad women caressing broccoli spears, enjoying an odd asparagus moment, and kissing a pumpkin are too racy for Super Bowl audiences, says NBC. The network has benched PETA's new TV ad launch promoting vegetarian foods -- a campaign PETA had commissioned specifically for the big game."
