Naughty Veggies

When NBC declined to air a saucy PETA ad featuring scantily clad women embracing their vegetables during the 2009 Super Bowl, the organization sniffed that the network had something against female vegetarians. NBC might have shot back that PETA cared more about the dignity of animals than of women. Testing the adage "sex sells," the animal-rights group cites in the commercial that "studies show vegetarians have better sex" and proceeds to show simulated foreplay between the nearly nude women and their veggies of choice. The ad, deemed too hot for ABC talk show The View, also inspired a re-enactment reenactment by co-host and comedian Whoopi Goldberg. Bet you're glad you missed that one.
