The ‘Veggie Love’ ad that was produced by the animal rights group PETA, was rejected by NBC. Don’t expect to see it as part of their televised Super Bowl XLIII line up of commercials on Sunday February 1, 2009.
PETA’s tag line is: Studies Show Vegetarians Have Better Sex – Go Veg. According to NBC, “the ad depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards.”
Past Super Bowl FCC issues included the well publicized 2004 Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction, which is still tied up in the courts.

We’ve got a comedic reenactment video below that was done by Whoopi Goldberg yesterday on The View.
