yeah, yeah, i know that PeTA is everyone’s favorite punching bag, but i have to say, i love this new commercial aimed at raising awareness for shelter dogs. the other two commercials on that page are pretty good, too. all three spots are part of a campaign to promote spaying & neutering our animal companions (or, as they’re calling it, “animal birth control”).
PeTA has a history of making provocative commercial spots (i guess they’re not selling anything, so what are they really? PSAs? anyway.), and several of them stick out in my mind even a few years after i first saw them (online). my big question is: why don’t i ever see these spots on television? am i watching the wrong channels? or do most networks just find them too controversial?
