Jessica and Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas are sick of people wearing fur and have decided to speak out about it in a big way.

The Australian pop duo recently teamed up with PETA to release a new fur-free ad, which features the musicians holding 2 skinned rabbits with the tagline “Here’s The Rest Of Your Fur Coat.”

The Veronicas are one of many celebs who’ve spoken out against fur, including Eva Mendes, Pamela Anderson, Kimora Lee Simmons and Sophie Monk.

“Designers that still use fur, to us it is just ignorant, it is unnecessary and it is unacceptable,” said Jessica. “We don’t want to be an ignorant generation, we want to inform people. We can be the generation that makes a difference.”

Check out the video below to watch a behind the scenes look at the making of The Veronica’s fur-free ad campaign. Oh yeah, and for the love of God…just say no to fur!

    OK that is super, thanks for incorporating new people into the movement! Youth needs to know about this industry and how it ties to fashion! Nina Hagen & Lene Lovich would be proud!

    BTW, the video is graphic. Not as graphic as some but definitely not for the faint of heart.

    I’m curious whether Jessica or Lisa wear leather or wool.

      You’re bi-curious? Good for you!
      I’m curious as to why all pro-animal people must meet your impossible standards? If they don’t wear leather do they use cars with rubber tires (stearic acid), do they step on microbes when they walk, are they concerned that in England people kill hounds for sport, how can they justify doing concerts there etc…

      I am bored by this attempted Gotcha reaction- I expect more out of haterz.

    Seriusly, gret The Veronicas are anti-fur but for me wearing leather shoes in the picture is just plain contradictory

    I’m sure the video and all the flack received from it will get them to denounce leather soon enough and remove it from any future lines. I have no idea if those particular shoes are leather, pleather, rubber, or plastic, but I agree, that’s going to cause controversy in itself. It’s funny that PETA allowed the video to get thru with the leather shoes on, I think that was a doozy for them if that’s what happened!

    P.S. those are fake rabbits.

    The shoes, it’s called pleather! :p
