Hidden Cameras–Coming to a Billboard Near You?

Written by PETA | October 30, 2009

Yesterday, the enormously talented (and playfully goofy, but more on that in a minute) singer/songwriter Joel Gibb of the indie band The Hidden Cameras was in Ottawa to unveil a billboard reminding everyone that “Canada’s Club Scene Sucks.”

While other compassionate celebrities have opted to wear our seal T-shirt to point out that the annual massacre of baby seals is a big, bloody blot on Canada’s reputation, Joel got into the spirit of things by donning our seal costume for the unveiling (well, part of it, anyway).

To read more about what Joel thinks of the seal slaughter, check out his interview with Exclaim!

Or you could check him out in concert—The Hidden Cameras are currently on tour. (No word yet on whether Joel will be performing in a seal costume.)

  • bandchicky314 says:

    Wait so this guy posted cameras in a billboard sporting the “Save the Seals” logo? I’m really confused and probably sound really stupid right now.

  • roxanne says:

    Joel Gibb is sexy and so compassionate. what a Catch. Catch cute guy not fishes.

  • Randi Jackson says:

    thanx this is a grotesque massacre and it needs to stop the beautiful innocent seals dont deserve this

  • Nicole Ann D'amico says:

    I dont understand how this could be allowed. Laws need to be passed this is insane and the fact that this is legal says alot about the human race! its not good! This breaks my heart. Its not right!.

  • Brien Comerford says:

    It’s enraging and infuriating that the Canadian Government is so inhumane to allow the sadistic killing of seals to continue.

  • lynda downie says:

    What a great guy! Thank you Joel.

  • PigPal says:

    Great billboard. That chilling image should help spread the word. What up Canada? Why would someone support this? Illegal to film the slaughter? Hmmm…

  • Raven says:

    Thanks so much Joel Gibb for doing this for the seal’s in Canada. You rock!
