Pigs? NOT okay!

Sonni Abatta moaning like she’s having sex and then doing a slo-mo hair flip?  Okay!

Kelli Frey straddling a stripper pole like nobody’s business?  Okay!

Andrew Stockey reporting on an exercise program that will make your love life better, ending with him closing the door to the bedroom wherein we are to believe some sex will be had at some point in time?  Okay!

Shaking boobies?  Okay!

A condom commercial featuring some pigs?

Gasp!  NOT okay!

Controversy over a new advertising campaign by Trojan, the condom maker, has trickled down to the local level, with television stations in Pittsburgh roundly refusing to show it, and stations in Seattle giving it the green light.

Boy, nothing like a condom commercial to make the local media affiliates do a collective clutching of the pearls and faint dead away.

Watch it here.  But keep your smelling salts handy.  Wouldn’t want your boss to find you passed out from the inappropriateness of it all.

    God knows that Pittsburgh is filled with the over 65 crowd!! I guess we wouldn’t want insult their target audience’s moral sensibilities.

    I think the commercial is cute.. nothing to scandalous at all. It’s just another way tho keep Pgh in the dark ages.. and to keep losing the younger people to more “hip” places. I left too.. I actually made it back here to raise my family here.. Sometimes I wonder why…
