Well, if I didn’t know who Bonnie-Jill Laflin was before, I sure do now!

The first and only female NBA scout, and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, bared all for a new PETA ad to show how sexy being a vegetarian can be.

“Want My Body? Go Vegetarian!” the ad states, rather tongue-in-cheek.

It’s an interesting idea, considering all of the fad diets out there and how they market to women using models in bikinis. Here, PETA has taken a similar route, but shown someone who is actually practicing what she preaches.

“Vegetarians and vegans typically weigh 10 to 20 pounds less and live six to 10 years longer than their carnivorous counterparts,” the PETA website says.

In a video recorded by PETA, Laflin explains, “I hope after seeing this campaign that people will … want to go to PETA.org and get more educated and see what happens to these animals in slaughterhouses and how horrible it is, because basically you’re eating fear.”

We totally agree, and while we’re not sure seeing Laflin in the buff will make people understand the fear component of eating animals, it’s certainly going to appeal to those looking to get in shape! Check out the video of Laflin below.

    There is debate over whether this is sexist, but I hope this gets some people’s attention who ordinarily would avoid this issue.
