New York -- Just in time for New York Fashion Week, PETA is
rolling out a computer-generated parody that makes consumers think twice about
wearing animal skins. In the video, foxes are disguised as statuesque runway
models draped in human body parts—including a wrap consisting of dozens of
arms. PETA's point? That every year, millions of animals are killed in the name
of fashion—but what if the tables were turned? The parody, titled "Runway Reversal,"
was donated by Ogilvy & Mather, the
world's top ad agency, with offices located in 169 cities on six continents.
"No one should die so that their skin can be
worn by someone else—and that includes the millions of foxes, rabbits, minks,
and other animals abused and slaughtered for their fur every year," says
PETA Vice President Dan Mathews. "If the idea of an animal draped in human
body parts seems grotesque, how can anyone who wears animal skins think that
they're making a 'fashion statement'?"
Every year, humans kill millions of animals for fashion.
Foxes on fur farms are kept in cages so small that they go insane. Snakes are
commonly nailed to trees and skinned alive. In the U.S., most animals whose
skin is turned into leather endure all the horrors of factory farming,
including extreme crowding and confinement, deprivation, castration, branding,
tail-docking, and dehorning—all without being given any painkillers. And geese
are violently plucked alive in order to produce down-filled products. In
China—where there are no penalties for abusing
animals on fur farms, millions of cats and dogs are strangled or bled to
death for their fur, which is often intentionally mislabeled as that of other
Animals trapped for fur endure excruciating pain before
their chests are stomped on or their necks are broken by trappers. In Canada, seal pups are shot or have their
heads bashed in while other babies watch in fear and try in vain to escape.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
