There's a whole lot of things that we witness, avoid, cringe at, and endure on the L Train every day, but apparently, the MTA has drawn the line at a moving company's advertisement that features a cheeky message about safe sex, of all things. To be fair, the MTA is probably one of the least sexy things in the world.
Dumbo Moving + Storage said the spot, one of three in its new campaign, was turned down by the MTA because it's too sexually suggestive and not suitable for younger passengers. The ad (seen in full below), shows a half-naked couple who appear to have just been in the middle of unpacking at their new apartment -- hot! -- and are about to, as Dumbo Moving CEO Lior Rachmany explained to Thrillist, "proceed with intimate events." At the bottom, the ad reads, "ALWAYS HAVE PROTECTION," which Rachmany admits is a pretty edgy way to say the company will protect and store your items during your move.
