Shirley Manson of Garbage’s New Ad

Written by PETA | March 27, 2007

Being outspoken, sexy, and super talented are three things that pretty much sum up Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson in a nutshell. Of course, I say Garbage frontwoman, even though she’s currently on hiatus from the band doing her own solo thing, because being the emo boy that I am at heart, I’ll always love her for the 1995 Garbage song Only Happy When it Rains. But that’s another story for another time I guess . . .

Anyway, I was really excited to get to work this morning and see Shirley starring in a new anti-fur ad for PETA Europe. And whether you’re into Shirley’s music or not, there’s no denying that this is a powerful ad that will really get people thinking about where fur and fur trim really come from.

The folks across the pond report that the ad is getting mad press over there, and they’re getting lots of good feedback from the fly-posting they did in Shirley’s hometown of Edinburgh. I just found out that we have a US version of the ad as well, and if you’re interested, you can win some cool PETA stuff signed by Shirley here. Feel free to enter of course, but be forewarned, when it comes to music memorabilia I’m like Charlton Heston and his gun collection, so they’ll have to pry the T-shirt signed by Shirley out of my cold dead hands.

Just kidding . . . sort of.

    Thanks for answeing my question about not seeing PETA’s ads anywhere. I work in the advertising dept of the Village Voice and have tried to get PETA to advertise with us. Maybe one day they will.

    “I love PETA’a s ads but how come I never see them any where?” My guess is they’re “too controversial” for some markets. The only one I’ve actually seen was the Le Tigre ad on the back cover Bitch magazine a while back.
