Los Angeles – “It’s a violent world. Keep cruelty off your plate. Go vegan.” That’s the message from punk icon and legendary Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein in a new ad campaign for peta2, PETA’s youth division.
And to drive the point home, he also stars in a peta2 video in which he impresses a skeptical chef with his fit plant-fueled physique and his monstrously delicious vegan dishes.
“Being vegan is metal as f***,” he proclaims, before demonstrating how to make savory asparagus tarts, Hasselback potatoes, and a layered cashew cheesecake with chocolate sauce. “If you don’t have time to make these recipes, there’s lots of vegan frozen desserts at your local grocery store,” he concludes. “Just look at the list of ingredients.”
peta2—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way”—notes that not only are vegans less prone to suffering from heart disease, obesity, cancer, and strokes than meat-eaters are, they also spare many animals daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries.
Von Frankenstein is one of many musicians and other celebrities—including Alissa White-Gluz, Davey Havok, Ashley Costello, the members of Rise Against, and Travis Barker—who have teamed up with peta2 to promote kindness to animals.
