Sexy Vegetables

"Apparently, NBC has something against girls who love their veggies," was PETA's comment after NBC banned their "Veggie Love" video from airing during Super Bowl XLIII in 2009. A look at the video, however, makes it quite clear that these girls loved their veggies a little too much. The ad's pitch was that vegetarians have better sex. NBC told PETA they were uncomfortable with the "sexuality" of the scenes with a woman "rubbing pelvic region with pumpkin" or "screwing herself with broccoli" — among other scenes — and that they would need to be cut. PETA refused to do so, counting on the controversy to spread their sexy veggies campaign far and wide across the Internet — which, obviously, worked. But won't somebody think of the pumpkins?
