In a new print ad for PETA, Paul McCartney opens up about the first time he realized it was time to pursue a vegetarian lifestyle. From the ad,

“Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realised, ‘I am killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me.’ “Something inside me clicked. I realised as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him and mine is to me”.

Check out the ad below. If you’d like to pick up the shirt that Paul has on, jump here.

    And that’s a really cute t-shirt. I’m all about t-shirts that get right to the point.

    I love the ad. We need more men speaking out for vegetarianism. I think most of the men I know would consider it un-manly of them to avoid meat.
