SuperBowl Ad

Let me just start out with "HAHAHA." Okay, now that I go that out of my system; PETA's ad was banned by NBC. If you know me you understand my disgust with PETA.

I am an animal lover and I support animal causes. I can't even watch the Sara Mclachlan commercial about animal cruelty because it makes me cry every time I see it. It also makes me want to go out an adopt every animal possible (my husband does not appreciate that). I was even a semi-vegetarian for about 7 years. Yes, I ate fish and chicken. I used to go days without eating any meat just because I hated the taste. However, I can not stand PETA. I feel that they use tactics that are inappropriate to get their point across. Their tactics do not stop anyone from eating meat, instead PETA is a joke to most. How about educating people instead of flinging red paint on them because they are wearing fur? All that leads to is the fur wearers to go buy a new fur. Everyone is entitled to their own lifestyle and PETA is not going to change this meat eating country.

With that being said did they really think that an ad that claims vegetarians have better sex would lead anyone to jump on the veggie wagon? I mean, come on, are people really that gullible to believe that. Also, why would NBC show a sexually explicit ad during the Superbowl? Sex and vegetables, yah that is a great commercial to show while families watch to game.

Fox news posted a quote from PETA:

"PETA's veggie ads are locked out while ads for fried chicken and burgers are allowed, even though these foods make Americans fat, sick, and boring in bed," responded PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "Whether you're a 250-pound linebacker, a fan, or a 'football widow,' the smartest thing you can do to make sure that you're around for next year's Super Bowl is to go vegetarian."

Umm, ok.

Here's a link to video, let me know if you become a vegetarian after watching it!
