Hmmm…I wonder why they didn’t allow this PETA ad to air during the Superbowl? It only highlights the healthy benefits of going vegetarian. It shows how eating your veggies would make you grow up to be nubile buxomy beauties. Seriously, NBC passed on this racy ad, but it wasn’t the first time PETA ads were banned. Many other PETA ads have been banned for being too provocative for television. I think PETA does it on purpose mainly because the chief reason they’re making ads is to attract attention, so what better way to get attention than being banned? I guess whether you like the ads or not, it’s good to provoke thought, whether you agree with PETA on the issues or not. I think it’s healthy to take a second look at why you believe the things you believe in. I was a vegetarian for 10 years, but ate meat again in 2003. But I do support causes like animal rights (although many would argue that eating meat is supporting, to a degree, animal cruelty) and getting people to spay and neuter their companion animals. And I try my best to be the best human to my cats and dogs. So I guess on PETA’s scale of animal friend or foe, I might fall somewhere in the middle.
Anyway, here are some of the other banned ads:
