GWAR and PETA2 To Once Again Join Forces to Make Ridiculous Video
Oderus tapped as spokesman in “alternative fur” campaign
Intergalactic heavy-metal warlords GWAR and fellow all-caps organization PETA2 have announced (or, actually, are announcing right now…) yet another alliance aimed at the furtherance of animal rights, namely an animal’s right as a superior species to not have his skin ripped of him to make clothing for inferior humans, unless of course GWAR decides different. This message shall be imparted to the human race through the production of another GWAR/PETA video, in follow-up to last years “Fight Humans Not Dogs” piece (see it here http://blog.peta2.com/2010/04/gwar_says_fight_humans_not_dogs.html )
This wildly successful infomercial resulted in more humans fighting than ever before, and was nominated for a “Peggy”, which is basically the “Oscar” of infomercials, eventually losing to Billy Mays, who accepted posthumously.
Billy Mays – his heart exploded
PETA2’s Dan Shannon, Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns, had this to say–“PETA is thrilled to be working with GWAR to raise awareness about the cruel ways that animals raised for their fur are treated. Like our previous collaboration with them, Fight Humans Not Animals, this collaboration will aim to turn a few heads”
GWAR‘s Oderus Urungus “said” this– “GWAR is titillated to be working with GWAR, in this, the latest thing that GWAR is doing. We’ll be providing the humans with an alternative to animal fur, and also helping improve the hygiene of this country’s vast prison industry, in a collaboration that is sure to rip off a few heads.”
The video is set to begin production at GWAR‘s shadowy “Slave Pit” next month. GWAR is currently wrapping up the North American leg of their “Bloody Tour of Horror” with a spate of shows on the east coast of the U.S.A. Catch GWAR in their last U.S. shows as their Two-year long 25th (now into it’s 26th) Anniversary “Slay-a-Bration” comes to its corpse-choked conclusion!
To make matters worse, once again it is time for Metal Sucks semi-regular opportunity for you to “Ask Oderus…Again”, as everybody’s favorite front-thing will respond to all manner of asinine inquiries! Entreat, cajole, or just play “stump the asshole”. Just make sure you “Ask Oderus”…right here! Only the top ten questions will be used so think hard! http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/02/09/ask-oderus-returns-again/
