Fun with vegetables

By now everyone knows that PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is burning up the news wires with the tale of its too-hot-to-handle commercial made to air during the Super Bowl. The networks, however have decided to err on the side of caution and said a big 'no' to PETA, thereby drawing even more attention to commercial that depicts some rather attractive women getting very friendly with some broccoli, summer squash and even a pumpkin. (a pumpkin?)
The point of the ad was for PETA to tout that vegetarians have better sex. Is this true? You decide.
You also can decide whether you think the ad was too over the top for Super Bowl Sunday, as it is posted below - along with a funny spoof by Whoopie Goldberg.

P.S. When my husband viewed this relatively hilarious (albeit sensual) ad, he said, "It looks like she is cooking herself into soup in a hot tub." Not the reaction that PETA was looking for I would imagine, but he does live with a vegetarian.

For the link to PETA and the ad:

Hilarious! The PETA ad had me laughing out loud - maybe not the intention...
