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.
