People will only pay attention to animal rights if you show them boobies! That’s always seemed to be People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals‘ entire advertising campaign logic, hasn’t it? PETA’s 2010 “State Of The Union Undress” — yes, you read that right, undress — is more of the same. A fetching young model strips down to her bra, panties and garters while lecturing about McDonald’s, KFC and the Ringling Bros. circus. We’ve posted the “safe for work” version above, but for those of you who really need to see boobies before you’ll care about animal cruelty, there is an uncensored version on PETA’s website.

Ooooh … looks like somebody’s in trou-ble! Although, to be honest, it seems like PETA was asking for it when they decided to go ahead about put celeb faces on their latest ad with no one’s consent. The poster, which features the slogan “Fur-Free and Fabulous!,” photoshops together a handful of stylish stars who have spoken out against fur in the past—Oprah, Carrie Underwood, Tyra Banks, and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
It’s unclear how the other ladies in the ad feel about this, but the White House is very upset about the surprise endorsement. PETA’s rationalization? “The fact is that Michelle Obama has issued a statement indicating that she doesn’t wear fur, and the world should know that in PETA’s eyes, that makes her pretty fabulous.”
A good cause? Perhaps. But we’re not too sure we’d want our faces associated with an ad whose copy sounds like a ladymag coverline, either. Besides, some of us around here like harem pants, but the last thing we want is to inadvertently end up their spokesmodel. [NBC Chicago] Keep reading »
Our favorite tell-it-like-it-is Real Housewife, Bethenny Frankel, is the latest to shed her clothes for a PETA ad. This image is stunning and will likely sell many of her Skinny Girl Margaritas. But, uh, can PETA work on getting more dudes for this campaign? Keep reading »
You loved her in “Lolita” and uh, whatever else she was in (hm…), but actress Dominique Swain just did a really, really bad thing that makes puppies cry. Not only was she lame enough to not get her dog fixed (what responsible pet owner in this day and age does that!?), but the cocker spaniel had a litter of eight puppies, and she decided to dump them at an already overburdened Malibu animal shelter. But wait, it gets worse: After driving up in her BMW and insisting they take the pups, workers there informed her that it was crucial that the animals be vaccinated, as puppies can easily die if they don’t get their shots at four and eight weeks. Her dogs were already eight weeks, but they had received none. When they agreed to take the poor creatures and suggested she make a donation to cover the cost of the shots, she claimed she was broke. (Well, like we said, we haven’t seen her in anything lately, but still … animal shelters are broke, Dominique Swain is not.) And the cherry on top of this horrifying tale? Keep reading »
Dang, the naked celebrities sure are coming out of the woodwork today, heh. Nineteen-year-old “Twilight” (heard of it?) star Christian Serratos poses nude for a new PETA ad, just in time for the “New Moon” opening next week. Um, yeah. [PETA] Keep reading »
Everything is sexual with Pamela Anderson, even when she’s protesting an annual seal hunt in northern Canada with PETA. [Toronto, 10/23/09] Keep reading »
