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.]
