Report: Activist group wants Chrysler to pull ads from NBC’s ‘The Playboy Club’

Playboy Club NBC

A so-called media family media watchdog activist group is calling on some action against Chrysler. Apparently one of the Auburn Hills brand’s commercial campaigns have been causing concern because they’re being shown during NBC’s “The Playboy Club.”

“Members are being asked to call, send letters and, in the case of Chrysler/Dodge, make personal visits to dealerships,” the activist group announced today.

On contrary to its name, the new show is limited in its sexual exposure and is more of an attempt to capture a particular interest in the 1960s, something that AMC’s “Mad Men” has seen success from. Either way, because Chrysler advertises cars for families and younger generations like the Dodge Journey, the Fiat 500, and the Chrysler, the activist group found controversial to when the Chrysler ads were airing.

And to make things more interesting, NBC’s Salt Lake City affiliate, which is owned by the Mormon Church, apparently has chosen not to air the show at all. Oh c’mon.
