When People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) submitted an uber-steamy commercial about going vegan to air during the Super Bowl, ad executives—-after cooling off—-deemed it too explicit for television, according to Fortune.
The ad entitled “Last Longer”, shows two side-by-side sex scenes. One, of a woman having sex with a meat-eater; the second, of a different woman having sex with her vegan lover. While one woman is left unsatisfied by her carnivorous man after just a few seconds, the second couple lasts through the entire length of the commercial. Watch for yourself:
On PETA’s website, the organization claims that meat-eaters are feeling the effects of a “deflategate” in the bedroom with more than half of men between the ages of 40 and 70 having to “throw the game” because of the difficulty they have getting revved up due to cholesterol slowing down the flow of blood to the male organ.
This idea of opting to go vegan coincides with a recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that suggests men who exercise regularly and consume a diet rich in flavonoids (berries, citrus, red wine) may reduce their risk of developing erectile dysfunction by over 20%.
In a statement to Fortune, PETA says “Super Bowl 50 audiences will be missing out on comedy, sex appeal, and the lifesaving message that vegan meals can help clear clogged-up carnivores and get their blood pumping again. PETA’s edgy but crowd-pleasing TV spot shows that vegans may have a banana in their pajama pocket, just to snack on later, but they’re also really pleased to see you.”
PETA had another ad, “Veggie Tales”, banned from the Super Bowl back in 2009, also deemed too racy for television.
