I had no idea this was even going on until after it was over

I am happy they did it though, I see way too much fur trim on peoples coats when I'm walking around the city. Especially disgusting considering how warm it is here

Only trying to match the absurdity in saying "Fur is dead".

I think "Life is Dead" is far more absurd than saying fur that comes from dead animals is dead.

Well, it sounds good while you're saying it.

Things like this is why people hate PETA.

Why can't they just do stuff normally? Things like this will not get their organisation any where.

Not to be a hypocrite, as I go to peta2.com all the time :P

Thanks for the cross-reference. I had not looked at the other thread before you pointed it out to me.

They make vegan Uggs, so those are likely synthetic. I think Uggs are ugly personally, but to each their own

Also, that dude with the woman sort of looks like Matt Cameron, the drummer from Pearl Jam/Soundgarden.

When I was shopping for a new pair of boots and coat this year, I saw a lot of fur that turned out to be faux, even on real leather coats and boots.

Because the women in charge of these campaigns (and the organisation) are ****ed in the head on most counts. They just happen to care about animals.

Yes I wish they do things normal but again they are trying put the point across, there is nothing wrong with little nakedness.

If they did everything "normally" they would not receive the attention that they do.
