CBS and our favorite evil and cunning Fox refused to air a condom commercial. According to Planned Parenthood's activation about the rejection of the ad, "The goal of the ad was to "turn the "men are pigs" maxim on its head by suggesting that a guy willing to take responsibility for safer sex by using a condom isn't so bad.
