MTA Rejects Tushy Ads: 'Nothing Says I Love You Like a Clean Butth*le'

C'mon, MTA! What's wrong with having a clean behind?!

Find me a queer person who doesn’t love a clean butthole—not just for good hygeine, but for err...practicality. That’s why Tushy, a company that sells "a modern bidet for people who poop," and their recent ad campaign is absolutely genius. 

The ads depicts individuals sitting on the John, with slogans that read "Nothing says I love you like a clean butth*le!" and "Consider my hole life changed."

According to the New York Daily News, NYC's Metropolitan Transportation Authority has mercilessly rejected the ads, citing a policy that prohibits, "[ads] that contain profanity or slang terms for the genitals or anus."

"The MTA, after careful review, has determined not to accept Tushy LLC’s proposed ad campaign on the grounds that it is 'directly adverse to the commercial, administrative or operational interests of the MTA as a business,'" MTA Chief Development Officer John Lieber wrote in a December 3 rejection letter to Outfront Media, a contractor that handles the MTA’s subway ads.

Thus, a logical person can only assume that the MTA is, in fact, a proponent of poopy buttholes. Given that I have seen literal sh*t while riding the A train, I’m inclined to believe that the MTA wants you to have dingleberries. (Clearly, that’s on brand for them.)

Tushy founder Miki Agrawal argued that the MTA (which can be described as an assh*le) should welcome a message that promotes hygiene and cleanliness.

"We’re turning people on to a much better way of living that the rest of the world has picked up on," said Agrawal. "To be rejected as a sexual product just does not compute. It’s bullsh-t. We’re calling bullsh-t on it."

It’s a particularly strong statement coming from a woman whose company is founded on the mission of eradicating (bull)sh*t. Hopefully, the MTA will reconsider, flushing their current views down the drain!
