Nothing to see here: Just a couple of chicks and a cowboy in the shower

Written by PETA | April 22, 2008


Earlier today, I brought you an image of a giant dinosaur attacking DC to help end animal testing. I’m no mind-reader, but I’m fairly confident that the following, word for word, is exactly what went on inside your heads when you saw that picture:

“This is the greatest thing that I have ever seen. Ever. It will be literally impossible for Jack to top this in a subsequent PETA Files entry.”

Well, you were wrong, people. You were wrong. Because, difficult as it may be for you to imagine, there is one thing that’s even better than a giant dino rampaging through our Nation’s capital. And we pulled it off yesterday afternoon in Times Square: The first-ever girl/girl shower demonstration. The purpose of the demo was to remind passersby and the media—just in time for Earth Day—that if they’re worried about the environmental devastation caused by wasting water, they should cut it off at the source … by going vegetarian. Just to spell this point out, it takes 5,000 gallons of water to produce just one pound of meat. Which is roughly equivalent to about a full year’s worth of showers (depending on how clean of a person you are).

Now that you’ve patiently sat through the math lesson, here are some pics of two girls and a naked cowboy in a shower. Yup, the naked cowboy himself (who is normally very territorial about his space in Times Square) was gracious enough to hop in with these kickass activists, telling reporters that he was doing it “for the animals — like me.” Glorious.

    I like her pink high heels and her cool tatoo! I love that you thought otisude of the box, but then again, you always do : ) I think you are a brilliantly fun photographer and I love visiting you each week! Thanks for your great idea to get people to say something other than Great shot. That gets SO old doesn’t it? : )

    Mark Oh I don’t know about “everything” PETA’s web site analytics just happens to be a passion of mine. Joel

  • Mark says:

    Joel I knew you would know everything. Keep up your terrific work!

  • Mabel says:

    So to protest the waste of water by the meat industry you wasted water? Perhaps next time you should protest the meat industry by grilling up some nice steaks for the tourists.

    Claire what’s “gross” about naked people? This was a very tasteful and effective demo!

    Mark We believe that because of the way people use the Web as in they google everything it’s more important to get “PETA” out than it is a URL people aren’t likely to go to. When we see a spike in traffic it’s not from people typing in URLs but by people googling information about PETA and our campaigns. We’ve come to this strategy after studying PETA’s web traffic for years. Joel PETA’s Marketing Manager

    One of your most innovative and effective stunts pulled of so far! Great job!

  • Laura says:

    I want to do something like this!

  • Mark says:

    Please can someone Jack anyone tell me why “” is not written on the curtain? If one of the major aims of PETA’s media stunts is to get people to go to the websites why don’t you have the websites printed where people can see them? Really it doesn’t make any sense. Unless there’s something PETA knows that I don’t which I guess is likely.
