Justin Gaston's Naked PETA Ad Makes No Sense

While nudity in a PETA advert is nothing new, this latest shoot featuring model Giglianne Braga, actor Benjamin Elliott, and Miley Cryus-ex Justin Gaston doesn’t even try to make a point to justify a lack of clothing. There’s no tagline — or anything related to a campaign of some kind — just the words PETA and “If I Can Dream”; Hulu.com’s online television series featuring the three.

“If nudity is involved, especially because it’s for a cause, I didn’t see anything wrong with that,” said Braga. “We’re just supporting a good cause by being naked.” Meanwhile, Justin added, “With this PETA campaign, what I really wanted was it not to be about me but to be about the animals. We’re trying to bring light to this cause.”

What cause?! Is PETA just supporting pain ‘ole nudity now? Did someone forget to photoshop these three into a fur factory or meatlocker? And why do I get the feeling a threesome is about to break out?

[UPDATE: According to PETA, these are just promotional shots. The real ads will be released sometime this fall.]

    My God, Peta is bullshit! This add is just an excuse for some kids to dry hump each other!

  • DeborahKK

    got YOUR attention…. you are talking about it, we are and now I am… POINT made.

  • Looks pretty good to me! 😉

    But yes, they’ll need to do more in the way of an actual message.

  • Scottysrule

    SOOOO, there’s a problem with being vegetarian & against killing animals for their fur??? Then YOU are the problem, people. Get off your high carnivorous horses. PETA ain’t perfect (like you guys seem to think YOU are) but at least it does its best to try to gain support for animals. WTF have YOU done good for animals, Huh? Turds.

    • skye4

      A lot of these folks are also misinformed over what PETA campaigns for. PETA does not oppose animal consumption in principle -though most of its members are in fact vegetarian, no doubt. PETA only targets animal cruelty, such as fur, which is derived by beating and/or skinning animals while they’re still alive. That’s different from instant death for a cow whose body is used for meat and leather.

      • messr

        Actually, thats a pretty utopian way of looking at it. The truth is, many cows and sows aren’t killed by the instant shock method because it is not correctly used. Many cows are actually still conscious while they are being gutted. You should read “slaughterhouse”. Instant death of a cow is no longer much of a reality.

      • Marcade White

        PETA doesn’t oppose animal consumption??? What?? The main reason why I even became vegetarian (now vegan) is because of the information I got from PETA about how animals are killed for their meat, and tortured for dairy and eggs. You should check out PETA’s site sometime and see what they really do and how cows are REALLY killed.

  • skye4

    PETA doesn’t contest wearing leather, or animal consumption in general. PETA focuses on animal cruelty, and the reason fur is targeted is because animals are beaten and/or are skinned alive for their fur.

    PETA does not oppose painless slaughter of a cow (for beef and leather) if the recommended slaughter method of direct shock to the animal’s head is used.

    • Rach

      Just so you know, PETA does oppose leather, animal consumption, and killing of any animals. PETA is for total animal liberation. You need to get your facts straight.

      • Kalese

        Just so you know PETA does support killing of animals. they slaughter, promote and support the slaughter of companion animals across the USA. they are against the no kill movement and countinually shut down any attempt at amending laws to help protect them. its not ok to kill a mink but it is ok to kill thousands of healthy cats and dogs. you need to get your facts straight.

        • Carol

          That’s right. PETA opposes the spay and release program for feral cats. They also support horse slaughter in the US as a way to keep the horses from being transported to Mexico or Canada

      Obviously then you have not actually been to a fur farm…you can’t provide a good product if you regularly beat an animal. Second, have you ever tried to skin a LIVE animal??? Get a life!!

      • Kimberly

        There’s footage of animals being skinned alive. It’s hard to watch but it is certainly done. They also use electrocute them anally. People also crush animal’s heads, again there’s footage.

        The conditions in which these animals live in is cruel by itself. many animals have infections and broken bones and are not treated at all. Their cages are filthy and they are often crammed together in all weather conditions.

        The fur industry in the states and worldwide (China is the absolute worst from what I’ve read and seen) needs to be stopped. Even the look of fur products makes me cringe, imo it looks so bad.

  • Sciencefreak

    PETA=people for the extinction of trained animals

  • *to a person unfamiliar w/Peta* ‘So…they sell porn?’
    Seriously, this has Zero to do with saving animals. They have lost all my respect. Don’t mind me, I’m just off to give my attention to a real organization, like ASPCA.

  • Bekka

    PETA means well. I honestly think all of that exposure to truly hideous and unbearable animal cruelty footage (besides the workers who secretly infiltrated things like hog farms and the like) traumatized them right out of the water. They’re crazy, but I sadly heart them. And I suspect that all of that obsession with young, beautiful, un-tortured, un-mauled, un-disgusting flesh is a sort of antidote for unforgettable images of another sort. That stuff will truly drive you mad.

  • Scruffytheferalslayer


  • That is what you call the “bad kind of threesome”

  • “if I can dream.” Dream about what? Threesomes? Polygamy? Being in peak physical shape. I suppose the third ad at the bottom could by the “after” photo for a workout video or diet plan.

  • Remonasec

    PETA, PETA, PETA…smh…why must you people be so damned crazy? What on earth do these pics have to do with animals?

  • rick

    I think this is a great advertisement! Yes I really really do!! So many people are in absolutely terrible shape- overweight, unhealthy, on numerous medications… this ad shows People who look absolutely stunning and in amazing condition next to the PETA name. It’s brilliant because what is says is basically ” Eat Vegan, and dream of incredible health, vitality and Beauty!” Let’s face it, most people really could care less about animals being slaughtered for their hamburgers or bacon or whatever…. people actually have told me that I am eccentric just because I have mentioned that I feel peculiar about eating animals, and they have actually told me that right to my face! However, most people want to be in good shape and healthy looking, and if they see an ad Like this one with people who Look absolutely Stunning And promoting a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, it gets them thinking that maybe they could Look this good if they eat this way too. Most people dream of a great body and this ad says “eats vegan and you can be beautiful too!” I totally get it, and really think this is one of their best ads ever!!

    • Marcade White

      Actually, just because you are vegetarian or vegan, that doesn’t automatically give you an awesome body (unless you are raw vegan.) Normal vegetarians and vegans eat a lot of processed foods, I like to call them “fake” foods. And I am vegan, but I LOVE vegan junk food. So, vegetarians and vegans aren’t automatically healthy just because we don’t eat meat, dairy, or eggs. Again, unless you are a raw vegan.

  • SheriB

    misguided campaign.

  • Leanne McKenzie

    PETA abuses women. They sell porn and they kill pets.

    There was value in the work they were doing in the beginning, but selling women in order to draw attention to their cause is not the least bit helpful.

    i miss the days when PETA meant something more. Now, they are a sick organization.

  • Elizabethxf

    Yeah, but here we all are talking about them…….

  • Nadime

    Though I do somewhat respect PETA for fighting against animal cruelty, I do not understand how gazing sensually at the camera while holding a boob conveys this organisation’s message in any way.

  • Daya Subramanian

    I have never understood these ad’s of PETA. I’m a vegan and an animal lover, and I know that there are better ways of spreading awareness than posing nude.

  • Ethan Kelley

    There are some things I don’t like about PETA, like veggie burgers, but there are some redeeming things about them too, like hot nude photo shoots!

  • Marcade White

    HELLO PEOPLE. The whole nudity thing is basically saying “I’d rather wear nothing than wear fur (including reptile skin, and leather).” God, it’s not rocket science.

  • Marcade White

    No one is forcing them to pose in the picture.

  • jbdean

    Wow, so I guess Alicia Silverstone isn’t the only one that’s clueless. I’ll explain for those that “don’t get it.” The human skin is ours. Ours to show off, to be proud of and … most importantly … to keep. The animal’s fur is their skin and yet while they show it off and are proud of it, because of horribly archaic societies and the laws, too many don’t get to keep theirs. They are skinned ALIVE. They are electrocuted anally and vaginally. They are beaten and live is concentration camp-like surroundings until their captors are ready to strip them of THEIR skins so that some vain and (also) clueless person can parade around in it as if it were theirs. I hope that was clear enough for everyone to get.

    Now please, stop making fun of PETA ads and do something constructive … like working towards ending animal cruelty.

  • Dick Fabulous

    Positively absurd. PETA is now purely a self sustaining marketing provocateur without any purpose or cause. Useless.
