PETA is a running joke in my circle because they protest the stupidest thing and seem so hellbent on making a splash in the media that they sometimes fail to adhere to their initial purpose.
Nevertheless, in its reign as the world's most well-known animal rights activists, PETA launched an ad campaign that is essentially veggie porn and, as you can imagine, NBC is nixing the ad for myriad reasons, the top of which is "asparagus on her lap appearing as if it is ready to be inserted into vagina." Wow, I never thought I'd here "asparagus" and "vagina" uttered in the same sentence.
And I'm pretty sure that after nipplegate, the world just isn't ready for anything even remotely sexual during the Super Bowl.
Here's the PETA ad anyway, because I love nothing more than a scandalous commercial that involves sexy women and cruciferous veggies.
