Seriously, if there's one woman we could see taking it all off for PETA, it would be Dita Von Teese. Nude is her middle name. Just kidding. It's Von.
Just kidding about that, too. It's Renee.
The point is, a new PETA ad features Dita Von Teese. And she's somehow more covered up than those Alicia Silverstone nude ads for the same group!
But just because we won't see Dita Von Teese nude doesn't mean the burlesque queen doesn't still manage to entice. As the teacher of every schoolboy's dreams - in a tight a pink corset, wearing stilettos and fishnet stockings - she's well aware of the effect she's having on her apt pupils.
PETA at its finest, ladies and gentlemen.
Fresh off a campaign that made the media sit up last week and take notice when it unveiled a new PSA featuring Alicia Silverstone naked, the animal-rights group unveiled a new ad featuring the sultry Dita Von Teese as she teaches her ABCs - which stands for Animal Birth Control.
The ad quotes Dita Von Teese as saying:
"Nearly 4 million dogs and cats are put to death in the U.S. every year because there are not enough good homes. You can help prevent this - always spay or neuter your animals, and if you're considering adding a dog or cat to your family, please adopt from your local animal shelter."
PETA has perfected the art of using celebrities - and racy, offbeat images - to deliver animal-rights messages that might otherwise be rebuffed.
Among the A-list stars and bold-faced names it has partnered up with over the years: Oscar winners Forest Whitaker, Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger; Pamela Anderson; Paul McCartney; supermodel Christy Turlington; former NBA rebel Dennis Rodman; The Sopranos' Edie Falco; and Alyssa Milano.
Last week, Alicia Silverstone's ad was deemed too much for Houston, where it was blocked from cable TV. Who has a problem with Alicia nude? Jerks.
