As Ringling Bros. comes to town next week, PETA has re-launched its circus video PSA with actor Wilmer Valderrama, who asks parents not to take their kids to any of the circus’ upcoming shows or to support similar “attractions” that exploit wild animals for profit.

“As an actor, it’s my job to entertain people—nobody forces me to perform. But sadly, animals in circuses aren’t so lucky,” Valderrama says in the video. “So please, don’t ever take your family to a circus that uses animals.”
