Rocket Boy

Published by PETA.

In some ways, there’s just so much to say about Rocket Boy, and yet now that I’m sitting down to write about it, it kind of leaves me a little speechless. Rocket Boy was an ad that we created about 10 years ago (when I was but a Rocket Boy myself) to highlight the connection between eating meat and impotence, and it recently resurfaced in all its glory when some genius in our Campaigns Department dug it up and circulated it around the office today. The Rocket Boy ad comes from the same brilliant minds that brought you “The Three Stages of a Weiner,” and “I Threw a Party but the Meat-Eaters Couldn’t Come.”

Please direct all complaints to [email protected], with the subject line “Please, please, please stop with the impotence jokes already. Think of the children!” And without further ado … Rocket Boy, ladies and gentlemen:
