Bullfighter’s Pants-Splitting Sideshow

Written by PETA | November 4, 2010

The impossible happened—for a split second anyway. I momentarily laughed during a bullfight—or rather, during a matador’s wardrobe malfunction, which drew plenty of guffaws and catcalls from the audience. Watch as Alvaro Marin runs, bare-bottomed, from a bull—and then fashions an adult diaper out of a piece of cloth. 


Of course, just like the tormented bull, the laughter was short-lived: Marin returned to the ring to slaughter the animal. Any shame that Alvaro Marin felt about his impromptu reveal was misdirected. As another Alvaro—the bullfighter-turned-vegetarian animal defender—notes, the continued killing of bulls in bullfights should bring shame and sorrow. Until these bloody slaughters are banned, they should also bring your protests

    I just watched it, thankfully it didn’t show the killing of the bull but the matador looked ridiculous and deserved far worse than just his pants splitting…

    Dont worry, Rev Meg,you,re not alone. I couldnt watch it either. I tried to but when I clicked on it a message came up that it is unavailable in my country. I,m in the UK. I,d love to see it, bet it,s really funny. Serves him right. What a shame tho, that the fight had the usual outcome. Shame on people who think it,s ok to torture animals for fun.

    I could’nt watch the video due to the fact that my computer is a dinosaur, but I bet it was really funny until Senor Bare Butt returned to the ring and killed the bull…
