PETA banned vegetable commercial

PETA's Superbowl commercial "Veggie Love" has been banned by NBC as it "depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards."

PETA contacted NBC to see what they would need to do to make the commercial acceptable.  An email with the following list was sent.  All these sections needed to be cut before the commercial would be deemed acceptable.  

Licking pumpkin

Touching her breast with her hand while eating broccoli

Pumpkin from behind between legs

Rubbing pelvic region with pumpkin

Screwing herself with broccoli (fuzzy)

Asparagus on her lap appearing as if it is ready to be inserted into vagina

Licking eggplant

Rubbing asparagus on breast

If PETA cut all that there would be no commercial!

Anyway now they do not need to air the commercial as we can all see it online.  Also PETA do not have to shell out a six-figure sum to get a commercial slot during the Superbowl.

A win-win situation for PETA.
