What Becomes a Loser Most? ‘Jerri Blank’ Reveals Fur’s Ugly Side
Comedian Amy Sedaris reprises her role as “Jerri Blank”—the 47-year-old high school freshman and self-proclaimed “boozer, user, and loser” of Comedy Central’s cult hit Strangers With Candy—to parody Blackglama Mink’s “What Becomes a Legend Most?” ads. In PETA’s latest campaign, a fur-clad Jerri asks, “What Becomes a Loser Most?” and advises consumers that “if you wear fur, people laugh at you, not with you.”
Supermodel Gisele Bündchen—who used to pose for Blackglama Mink—now regrets it and tells Vanity Fair, “It was a bad decision on my part, because I don’t wear fur. … I am the biggest animal-lover in the world.” And Sarah Jessica Parker (who costars with Sedaris in the Strangers With Candy movie) recently said that unlike her character on Sex and the City, she would never wear fur.
