Pigs Get Wings

It's a common cliche in advertising that the product in question makes you more beddable in the eyes of the opposite sex. This ad for the well-known and well-respected Trojan brand of condoms merely takes that well-worn trope to its logical conclusion. So why are the networks refusing to run it?

(I confess, I laughed.)

Hmmmm, I don't get it.

I know exactly why they won't run it. The opening scenario is entirely too accurate about how women feel in that kind of situation, and thinking about it makes the (male) network people uncomfortable. So even though the message of the ad is, "You can make yourself NOT be a pig," they don't like it.

The networks won't run any condom commercials. They're afraid of the religious right.
