There have been many instances in movies, clothing and other animal related activity that have walked a fine line in “insulting” PETA. However, this time PETA may be the ones crossing that line. Or are they?
A new ad from PETA has raised many eyebrows. Jessica, the star of the spot is walking home in a neck brace and “suffers from BWVAKTBOOM, ‘Boyfriend Went Vegan and Knocked the Bottom Out of Me,’ a painful condition that occurs when boyfriends go vegan and can suddenly bring it like a tantric porn star.”
Sure, they may be promoting the fact that a clean vegan diet can raise your libido but is this promoting domestic abuse? It’s an interesting take on a serious matter. Especially a group so involved with ending abuse to animals. What do you think?

First off, Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!
Being the ad geek that I am – my boyfriend often shares ads and commercials he sees with me if he thinks they’re good. This commercial was on last night and he thought it was a) hilarious and b) probably true.
I googled it this morning, and realized I had seen it during the superbowl. As with a few other companies (H&M, GoDaddy and let us not forget the Sexy and I know it – M&M commercial) we know that the main goal when making a commercial is grabbing the attention of the viewier.
TeleFlora created this ad with Supermodel Adriana Lima. sidenote: that body has had a child and her name is Valentina – how appropriate
Giving the world known advice. “Give and you Shall Receive”
Cute, funny, sexy.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
