NBC bans ‘racy’ Super Bowl PETA advert
This new commercial by animal rights group PETA has been deemed too racy for Super Bowl viewers. According to NBC, “it’s too sexual in nature”.
In this advertisement, women are undressing… flaunting their sexy lingerie while playing sensually with veggies.
There is one shot where it looks like one woman is about to have sex with a pumpkin!
PETA spokesman Michael McGraw said the company was surprised the ad was rejected.
According to the press release:
PETA wanted the commercial to add balance to the traditional onslaught of Super Bowl commercials for meaty, greasy, and factory-farmed fast food, including those run by KFC. The fast-food giant is a major NBC sponsor–and a target of heavy PETA campaigning as a result of its failure to reform cruel animal welfare practices and slaughter methods. PETA is asking if this relationship could have something to do with NBC’s decision to nix the group’s ad.
WARNING: Don’t watch this video if you are easily offended by broccoli spears, asparagus, pumpkin and hot babes in sexy lingerie.
Do you think the advert is ‘too hot’ for television?
