…women at a bar surrounded by pigs. When one pig goes to the restroom and returns with a condom purchased at a vending machine, he is transformed into an attractive man. The end of the commercial carries the message: “Evolve: Use a condom every time.” [source]
Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Planned Parenthood’s vice president of medical affairs, isn’t happy about the FOX/CBS decision to reject the ads:
As the nation’s leading reproductive health care advocate and provider, Planned Parenthood knows that for sexually active people, condoms are the best way to prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections [emphasis added].
“The best way?”
The ad is simply in poor taste. A man exploiting a woman in a bar to be his unpaid hooker is a pig with or without a condom in his pocket.
You know it’s bad when two networks that make billions of dollars broadcasting trashy shows won’t even show your ad.
See the ad for yourself:
