The American Thanksgiving travel rush, which was this year made extra-painful by new physically invasive security at airports, was also supposed to debut a new campaign for veganism by PETA:
The ad (which is actually kind of lame) didn't just fail to pass airport ad standards for "political advertising"; it completely pissed off the community at Feministing: "Only PETA can try to profit off of the invasive TSA screenings by pushing objectifying and body image bullshit with their latest ad."
The L.A. Times noted: "PETA Vice President Dan Matthews said the ads were meant to be humorous. He said PETA has not taken a political position on airport security measures."
Of course not. PETA has no mandate to promote human rights. Just their own agenda.
Which is funny, considering they made this ad so prudish. PETA protests are known for their nudity.
What a missed opportunity, since everyone knows the new scans look like this:
UPDATE: Apparently, that image is a fraud.
