so a pig walks into a bar...(video)

Sounds like the start of a joke, but Trojan Condoms has made it into an ad campaign. Their new advertisement features a pig...in a bar...who... with the help of one mighty Trojan condom...shall walk out a man. A sexy man, who, it alludes, will get lucky with one very foxy babe.

While both CBS and Fox have refused to air the ads on ambiguous moral terms. I can’t help but wonder if there’s an irate Pig Anti-Defamation League out there somewhere prodding Rupert Murdoch not to air the ad. Otherwise it really makes no sense that the network that is known for pushing the envelope, would have such a boa-rish (sorry couldn’t help it) excuse for saying no to what could be a powerful, public health message.

Well, I suppose if people did start carrying around condoms for pregnancy prevention, Fox may have trouble finding guests for the ever popular "who's the daddy" DNA test on Maury Povich.

If you want to read a really interesting and perspective on the decision, Jill Filpovic wrote a great post on Huffingtonpost

Also, Planned Parenthood is urging Fox and CBS to air the ads You can sign the petition here
