'Hey, Ralph, How Much Is a Copy of Orgasm?'


This two-minute Bud Light spot, which did not make it to the Super Bowl, owes a lot to a scene from Bananas, but it's pretty funny. I still have no desire to drink Bud Light, and I'm not sure what message Anheuser Busch is going for. Consume our product, and you too can be publicly humiliated?

Imagine the complaints from the Parents Television Council if the commercial had aired as planned and a pixelation malfunction had revealed the vibrator in all its glory. Despite the protagonist's embarrassment, the spot speaks to the mainstreaming of porn, a theme the PTC probably would have found even more objectionable.
