The latest campaign by militant animal rights group PETA has seen three young women strip off and frolic on a bed in the middle of a busy LA street.
The charity – which has become well known for persuading celebrities to pose nude for its ‘I’d rather go naked than wear fur campaign’ – launched its latest flesh-flashing stunt for Valentine’s Day, reports the Mirror.
The official video shows a bed being set up in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard before three models take off their robes and pose in nothing but knickers and high heels.
In a reference to PETA’s ridiculously explicit recently banned Super Bowl advert, they all hold up heart-shaped signs saying ‘Vegans make better lovers’ to ‘protect their modesty’.
One of the models can be heard to say:
This Valentine’s is for lovers, so the best way to show animals how much you love them is by not eating them.
Unsurprisingly the eye-catching campaign drew a large crowd and – this being Hollywood – there were a fair few dressed as famous movie characters. Among those seemingly persuaded by PETA’s message were Freddie Krueger and Chewbacca.
The stunt clearly made an impression on one man, who told the camera: “This is definitely some great information, and it inspired me to go vegan.”
Was it the information? Or was it the women with no clothes on?
