People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was founded in 1980 as an animal rights group. Today it's the premier producer of subversive sexual pop-culture fodder. It's gotten to the point where people talk more about PETA's tacky tactics than their actual message. Shouldn't they get back to the business of saving cocks, not teasing ours?
Tomorrow at noon, PETA will send out scores of topless protesters to Bayfront Park adorned in little more than body paint and fish fins and holding signs like "Fishing Kills" and "Gutted Alive." This might have been a more productive protest if we weren't so sick of PETA sexing up everything it does. To prove the point, we've rounded up some of PETA's most ridiculously raunchy advertising.
PETA first dipped its hand into eroticism with the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaign. At first, it starred supermodels such as Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell, but lately has relied on perennial D-listers such as Holly Madison and Khloé Kardashian and massive amounts of Photoshop. What might have been clever the first time around is getting kind of old, and almost always brings more attention to whatever minor celeb they can get to strip (almost always a skinny lady, more often light-skinned than not) to any anti-fur campaigning.
