NBC’s incessant promos for TV show Parenthood during coverage of Winter Olympics spur condom distribution record
March 2, 2010
VANCOUVER, B.C. (FASTLAUGH.com) — The 2010 Vancouver Olympics have “captured the gold medal for most condoms distributed at a Winter Games,” it was claimed today by an official of Vancouver Coastal Health, who noted that this massive distribution of rubbers “…was part of a greater effort to improve HIV and AIDS awareness, and also in response to the massive screwing that NBC was giving to its viewing audience.”
The precedent for condom distribution at the Olympics was established in Barcelona, Spain during the 1992 Summer Olympics. The Vancouver condoms were provided by the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control, with an additional emergency supply provided by the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research.
The combination of randy, young athletes performing at their physical and sexual primes, combined with the incessant commercials, teases, promos, billboards, and swag for NBC’s upcoming — and soon to be cancelled show — Parenthood, are widely viewed as the chief reasons for the unprecedented surge in condom use.
During the seventeen-day winter extravaganza, the health agency distributed nearly 100,000 condoms bearing NBC’s logo and the Olympic rings.
One of the athletes, only half-joking, commented, “Considering the bend-over screwing that the American viewing audience just got from NBC (the aptly named Peacock Network) during their pathetic broadcasts of these Olympics with their incessant commercials, self-promotion, and disjointed coverage — and are sure to get again in four years — it seems very appropriate that a few million of these NBC logo condoms should also be distributed to their viewing audience in time for Sochi in 2014.”
