In the short but effective clip, Pink the stripped alligator and Ricky the naked rabbit ask for their skins back from the woman who now has them in the form of a purse and coat. Their point: “All exotic furs and skins are stolen.”
This is not the first time for either star to lend a voice to PETA campaigns. On PETA’s website, Pink narrates a graphic and disturbing video about the cruelty inflicted upon sheep in the wool industry. Also on the website is the letter Gervais penned to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, criticising the use of real black bear fur in the ceremonial caps of the Queen’s guards.
Despite the alternatives to the gruesome practices of raising and destroying animals for skin, fur and wool, it remains a part of the fashion industry because there is still a market for it.
Pink says, “There are lots of clothes to buy for a look that kills without killing anything.”
Ricky the Rabbit says, “What kind of a person steals a guy’s coat?”
