Warning: Video NSFW!
It happens just about every year. PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, puts together a racy Super Bowl commercial that no way in hell would ever make it onto TV in a million, billion years, and then they post it online with a press release patting themselves on the back for the shocking “scandal” they’ve caused. This year is no exception, in the case of the headline-grabbing non-profit’s 2016 Super Bowl commercial “Last Longer,” which supposedly left CBS executives “speechless” when they saw it.
The commercial makes the claim that vegans have more stamina in the bedroom due to the fact that the “cholesterol in meat, eggs, and dairy products slows the flow of blood to all the body’s organs—not just the heart.” Okay then! They demonstrate this in the most graphic and explicit way possible, with some nice side-by-side action showing a dude who eats meat and dairy failing to please his lady, compared to a veritable sex champion who sticks to a strictly plant-based diet.
Oh, and then the meat-eater walks outside and is killed instantly by a falling air conditioner, because if nothing else, PETA can be relied on to never be subtle. So, I’m guessing the message we’re supposed to take away here is: Don’t eat meat, because your sad boner will make you a failure in the bedroom and you’ll die without orgasm. Seems reasonable enough.
