WTF?

Warning: If you are easily offended don't watch the videos. Viewer discretion is advised. Any other warning you can think of? Add it here...

The first video was rejected by NBC from being aired at last years Superbowl and as far as I know, it never made the airwaves on any network. The commercial is from the organization PETA. The second video is currently airing on TV and I've seen it on different networks; it's a Hardee's ad. So, what's up with that? Why is one okay, the other not? Interesting world we live in...

Chris,

I have seen both of these ads but not together. The Hardee's ad has been driving me crazy with disgust. (More for the hygiene issues -- licking goob off the concrete step? Yuck! And then there was the overt "SEX SALES" message.) But you put these ads together and you are right ... there is no difference, except for the products being sold. Yep, one could rationally conclude that we are one perverted society... pushing the Bacon and shunning the veggies.. WTF??

Both ads work effectively with me! I'm looking for a Hardee's girl at the farmer's market tomorrow!!
