Peaches: Anti Canada’s ‘Club’ Scene
The electroclash artist joins Morrissey's crusade against seal clubbing in Canada by appearing in an ad for peta2.
Peaches is speaking out against Canada’s seal hunt by appearing in a new ad for peta2, offering the quote: “Canada’s ‘Club’ Scene Sucks.” The artist joins fellow musicians like Morrissey — who refused to tour the Great White North, citing the country’s method of clubbing and skinning baby harp seals for their fur — in calling on the Canadian government to stop the annual slaughter. In the ad, Peaches appears, dolled-up like a 1950s-era icon, next to an image of a hunter about to club a seal. The ad asks viewers to log on to peta2’s website and sign a petition against the seal hunt. Artists like Le Tigre, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Brazilian Girls, and Trent Reznor have teamed up with peta2 to promote awareness of cruelty to animals.
