I thought number 2 was hilarious, but that's just my immature humor

Instead I voted for number 3 because I think it has a better shot at getting some airtime. It's more reserved than the others but I love the concept:

The odd thing is..



I've seen some sexual type stories about women doing those things. They were pretty strange.

I think #2 was so funny but if they air that, it will make Peta look like total idiots. Sooo...if I had to choose, it would be #3.

I wish Peta would stop offending people and damaging their own image. They should do a serious ad that gives people an idea of how barbaric fur production really instead of trying to be funny. I went shopping for a coat yesterday and was alarmed at how difficult it was to find coats, or even sweaters, without fox or rabbit fur; fur has taken over the market. It's serious when fur becomes ubiquitous in a place like La Jolla, California.

As far as I'm aware, not a single US mainstream news outlet has done a piece about Chinese fur. I think people finding out about live skinning would put at least a little dent in sales. Has anyone seen any stories about this in the US news?

The 1st one wouldn't work for me. I didn't like the 3rd one much, i don't think it made much sense. I preferred the 2nd.

I'm actually in media writing class in college right now and I have to say I highly disagree with that. Humor is actually one of the best forms of advertising, even when it is a serious topic. Although both types of ads are good, the humorous ones are easier to get past censorships (which are very strict with PETA's graphic footage ads). Better a funny ad with a point, then no ad at all.

I really like the second one the best. The first is too gross to be able to stand, and the last is kind of boring. The second one is fascinating and really funny.

I couldn't get the third one to play so I can't choose my favourite, but I agree that funny ads are sometimes better than serious ones. People will tune out anything preachy. But when something funny or seemingly benign comes on TV, they let their guards down.
