The only thing better than getting naked is getting naked for a good cause. Or maybe the only thing better than supporting a good cause is supporting it while you're naked?
Either way, three of Vanderpump Rules' hottest stars are teaming up and stripping down to protest against orcas being held in marine circuses like SeaWorld.
And, as you'll see in the video below, they're wearing some very interesting body paint. ...
For those of you hoping to see Lisa Vanderpump wearing nothing but body paint ... we've very sorry to disappoint.
But we hope that Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay won't leave you disappointed.
Nudity isn't inherently sexual, but it sure does grab people's attention.
Just look at how good Scheana Marie Shay looks in body paint:
If your message is important, you might want to make sure that you hook people's attention.
Controversial animal rights organization PETA, which has been slammed in the past by political opponents but also by big-time proponents of animal rights who accuse PETA of hypocrisy and of misguided practices, uses nudity a lot.
PETA even made some weird bestiality posters in a recent push to promote veganism.
Sometimes the message gets lost.
But when it comes to this particular campaign, it's not difficult to agree with PETA or these three Vanderpump Rules beauties.
The video below isn't just skin and body paint (though those are also factors). It's also
Ariana Madix makes sure that their goals are clear, saying:
"Today we're here with PETA shooting a campaign to release the orcas into seaside sanctuaries from SeaWorld."
Her costar, Scheana, adds some grim information about the prospects for captive orcas:
"Orcas have died at SeaWorld and the fact that none of them died from old age is just insane."
That is so, so sad.
Lala Kent shares how the release of captive orcas from marine circuses like SeaWorld is important to her.
"When I saw the documentary, Blackfish, it literally changed my entire life."
That documentary did wonders for raising awareness.
"I found my passion and I found my voice and I will not stop until any place like SeaWorld is completely shut down."
That's a powerful personal cause to have.
"Places like SeaWorld or the Miami Sea Aquarium ... it is the equivalent to me of taking a baby and putting them in a bathtub and having them grow up there."
That might be a bit of a stretch -- maybe forcing a baby to grow up within a single room, also unforgivably awful, would be a better analogy.
(We're not blaming Lala for that -- PETA has compared meat-eating to rape in the past; being inflammatory is arguably part of their brand)
"When you take a mammal of that size and put it into basically a swimming pool, you can't expect it to do anything but self-destruct."
Sadly, we know of countless instances of orcas doing just that. They lose their minds.
Ariana provides her own thoughts:
"Orcas are very social animals and they're very intelligent animals."
That's very true.
"Each pod has their own language. So you have orcas from all different pods who are living in these bathtubs."
Conflict in that situation seems inevitable. And so does misery.
"They're fighting with each other because they have no way of communicating, they're confused, and they're full of anguish, and it shouldn't be that way."
As far as PETA advertisements go, this one is solid. It's an idea that we can all get behind.
Shout-out to these three Vanderpump Rules stars for using their platform for good!
