PETA's New Superbowl Ad


Dear PETA,

For a company that is so devoted to the ethical treatment of animals, I find it incredibly insulting that you show such disregard for women.  I get it - sex sells.  But I think it can be done tastefully.  Your most recent commercial featuring girls parading around in bikinis (or even topless) simulating fellatio with various vegetables is completely exploitative.  Last time I checked, the Superbowl was a family program (I thought we all learned that lesson back in 2004 with the Janet Jackson costume debacle).  Is this really the message you want to send to our youth?

OK.  End rant.  My burrito bowl is getting cold.

Sincerely,
Erin
