GWAR And PETA2 Join Forces To Make Ridiculous Video

Intergalactic heavy-metal warlords GWAR and fellow all-caps organization PETA2 have announced (or, actually, are announcing right now...) yet another alliance aimed at the furtherance of animal rights, namely an animal's right as a superior species to not have his skin ripped of him to make clothing for inferior humans, unless, of course, GWAR decides different. This message shall be imparted to the human race through the production of another GWAR/PETA video, in follow-up to last year's "Fight Humans Not Dogs" piece. This wildly successful infomercial resulted in more humans fighting than ever before, and was nominated for a "Peggy", which is basically the "Oscar" of infomercials, eventually losing to Billy Mays, who accepted posthumously.

PETA2's Dan Shannon, Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns, had this to say: "PETA is thrilled to be working with GWAR to raise awareness about the cruel ways that animals raised for their fur are treated. Like our previous collaboration with them, Fight Humans Not Animals, this collaboration will aim to turn a few heads."

GWAR's Oderus Urungus commented: "GWAR is titillated to be working with GWAR, in this, the latest thing that GWAR is doing. We'll be providing the humans with an alternative to animal fur, and also helping improve the hygiene of this country's vast prison industry, in a collaboration that is sure to rip off a few heads."

The video is set to begin production at GWAR's shadowy "Slave Pit" next month.

GWAR is currently wrapping up the North American leg of their "Bloody Tour Of Horror" with a spate of shows on the East Coast. Catch GWAR in their last U.S. shows as their two-year-long 25th (now into it's 26th) anniversary "Slay-a-Bration" comes to its corpse-choked conclusion!

GWAR's new album, "Bloody Pit Of Horror", sold around 2,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The band's previous CD, "Lust In Space", opened with 5,000 units to debut at position No. 96 on The Billboard 200 chart.
