Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold thinks Randy Moss can help him keep his seat, but the NFL isn't so happy about it.

In Feingold's recent ad for his re-election campaign, he features Moss' famous 2005 "mooning" stunt at Lambeau field. When Moss pulled off this celebration, announcer Joe Buck reacted, "That is a disgusting act."

Now, the NFL doesn't seem to approve of it either, but not because it is lewd, but because Feingold is using it without license, and they have asked the campaign to take down the ad, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

As for what the mooning is doing in the ad, it is used to compare Moss' celebration to that of Feingold's opponents.

"They're dancing in the end zone because they think they're going to take down the U.S. senator who has been named the No. 1 enemy of Washington lobbyists. Fortunately, the game isn't over yet," it narrates.
