While delighting audiences with their North American tour, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have found a new and unexpected way to inspire — a new PETA video spot starring Iggy Pop live and in animation, showing his muscles as he cavorts to one of Cave’s most adored love songs, “Breathless.”

Video: Rock Legends Leave Us 'Breathless' in Heartfelt PETA Video

In the video, the “godfather of punk” appears in his dog’s daydream as a superhero, helping a turtle safely cross the road and coming to the defense of a rabbit in a hare-raising attack, as Cave sings, “The rabbit hides beneath the ground/For he is defenseless without you/The sky of daytime dies away/And all the earthly things they stop to play/For we are all breathless without you.”

The uplifting new video spot carries an important message. “Nick Cave and Iggy Pop have left PETA breathless with this sweet video,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “If everyone acted like the people our dogs think we are and depend on us to be, the world would be a far kinder place.”

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are part of a long list of musicians — including Paul McCartney, The Black Keys, Sia, Morrissey, and Chrissie Hynde — who have donated their songs to PETA, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way.”
