What happens when you squelch on a promise made with PETA? First they get their creative team to design a quirky poster to point out your inhumanity. Then they send hundreds of supporters to protest with the posters. Oh, and sometimes they go as far as taking a full page ad in Variety just to make their point.
The new “Pinocchio Armani” advertisement is not only a ploy for embarrassing payback, but a plea for those attending this year’s Oscars to avoid Armani garments. The animal rights group has even taken the liberty of writing to Oscar nominees, encouraging them to wear the fur-free designs of Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger and Vivienne Westwood.
I must admit, the advertisement made me laugh, but I guess we’ll see who’s laughing when Armani remains a red-carpet hit or PETA sticks it to the man.
Thanks Daily News!
