Behind The Leather: PETA Surprises Shoppers With Fake Leather Accessories

Some people tend to turn a blind eye to animal suffering when it comes to buying leather goods. Ogilvy & Mather Advertising Bangkok and PETA Asia teamed up to change this attitude. They opened a fake pop-up shop in one of Bangkok’s most trendy shopping malls and put seemingly ordinary luxury leather goods on display. However, they had a terrifying secret inside.

The inside of the bags, shoes, wallets, and other items was the ultimate definition of gore. “Shoppers were shocked when they opened a bag or unzipped a jacket to reveal a beating heart or pulsating intestines,” PETA’s Ashley Fruno told Bored Panda. “This is a provocative way to confront consumers with the cruelty behind every exotics skin bag, belt, jacket or pair of shoes.”

More info: petaasia.com

PETA Asia and Ogilvy created a fake pop-up shop in one of Bangkok’s most trendy shopping malls

Unsuspecting shoppers jumped back in horror, gasping for breath

Leather purses, jackets, and even gloves were filled with fake animal flesh and blood

“Every year, at least 440,000 pythons are caught in the jungles of Southeast Asia”

They’re cruelly decapitated

Sometimes they’re even skinned alive…

Just to become a trendy item…

“An average handbag requires the slaughter of not one, but four crocodiles”

Does this really have to be the price to pay for yet another bag?

Watch how shoppers reacted to these bloody accessories here:

Thank you, Ashley Fruno, for talking to Bored Panda about this much needed project!

I consider myself an animal lover, and I personally don't wear leather, but I think PETA crossed the line and then some here. In fact I suspect that the number of people who are going to be put off by their tactics is going to be larger than the number of those who change their minds as a result of this particular stunt by several orders of magnitude, and I'm fairly certain that most of those forwarding this link to everyone they know already consider themselves animal rights activists. In other words, what we have here is yet another instance of PETA preaching to the choir while annoying pretty much everyone else.

I love leather. Basic cow or deer hide from a local hunter is my favorite. Exotic leather from stores come from cruel places. Shop local, buy local and support a local hunter. PETA stupid shock method is hypocrisy since they kill many dogs and cats. Know the difference and know your facts. Not all leather is sourced from cruelty. Don't like leather, don't buy it. Like leather, buy from a local hunter.

Hunting a local deer or an exotic python is the same level of "cruelty" (not that I specially care, I'm not vegetarian..but I don't support hunters neither). The big difference is the method of hunting and killing, the regulation about the numbers of animals allowed to kill,... FYI most of crocodile leather come from crocodile farms and are killed in an official framework. I think it's far more important to have a global conservation than looking at one specific animal (except if it's endangered)

wow! What do I think??? SO glad you asked!! Hypocritical PETA!! They pull outrageous shenanigans like this, but when THEY euthanize (murder) Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes (which they do!) its supposed to be okay, because THEY are "experts" and THEY deem Pitt Bulls as baaad, and therefore their lives are not worthy of saving! Right PETA?!?!

WAKE UP PEOPLE! PeTA is the most hypocritical organization in the world. They dupe the simple minded with their insincere "animal rights" message while they're killing tens of thousands of animals in their "care" (last count over 30,000 as reported to the state of Virginia). The real kicker? They are against no-kill animal shelters. If you're sending money to them, stop and, instead, contribute to your local animal shelter where you will really be helping animals in need.

What a lot of disgusting, sickening over kill! Like publishing comments about the fur industry - as in "skinning animals alive.. they are also responsible for the slaughter of homeless animals as in this quote: "In 2006, PETA put to death an astonishing 97 percent of animals it impounded -- finding homes for only 12 of the 3,043 animals it claimed to rescue."

I can only wonder how the animal was treated prior to having it's head cut off. Hopefully not as bad as we treat animals in the food industry. Was driving through Nebraska last December. The temperature was in the teens, it was sleeting and there were high winds. I passed many semis with open air trailers packed full of pigs. As I drove by I could see the animals pressed up against the rails of the trailer. Their flesh was frozen. When a bolt is shot into a pigs head, it usually dies instantly. How the animal is treated prior to that moment in time is what sickens me. If you don't want to support an animal welfare organization, please support petitions and legislation.

I get mass pointless killings of animals is appauling the waste of meat is atroscious ... Thats companies not individuals ... Thats down to hitting targets not customer demand... I get that there are other products blah blah... But u cant bully people into believing what u do but calling em uncaring... Some people eat meat because they want to....

This is an absolutely repulsive & desperate move from PETA, resorting to disgusting horror tactics for the shock factor element does NOT equate to raising awareness about animal cruelty. The only thing I'm taking away from this clip is the fact that PETA irresponsibly and grotesquely twists facts. Can't say I'd support any organization that shamelessly uses this type of propaganda to further their cause no matter how noble the mission.

Still think it is stupid J.B. cause every year as people worry about the economy.. for gods sake we keep a list of all of the endangered and extinct animals as if we can bring them back from the dead. If we raise awareness now than just like all of those animal cruelty projects people will become vegans, vegetarians and now we can think of a new way to say Anti-Cruelty oh wait there already is one it is called the animal testing movement that has 68% of America signing it so if you think this is fucking stupid.. COOL, you know how to use the F bomb and you dont understand that keeping the animals in the world will help our world live longer and in better conditions.

While reading some of the comments, I found that some people did not appreciate the doings of PETA as how they are protecting the animals. I think PETA is just doing their job as protect, no to mistreat and give us awareness about the animals. Please don't say something not good to them just because of how they're are promoting their advertisement regarding to this matter. Even though it kinda inappropriate (especially to those of our children) for them to use something like that as an advertisement but I think they're just doing this because of their love to the animals. I think its unfair that they are doing something for the good of all while we are here doing nothing and complaining something that we ourselves did not contribute for that matter.

PETA is indeed extreme, however, sometimes that's what it takes to make people realize where leather comes from. The same hold true for the meat we eat. I've seem some pretty graphic PETA exhibits concerning the meat we eat. I'm not a vegetarian, but it goes without saying that we all "know" how our food animals are raised. Every time I see a documentary or exhibit about these food animals I think twice. Don't you?

PETA is indeed extreme, however, sometimes that's what it takes to make people realize where leather comes from. The same hold true for the meat we eat. I've seem some pretty graphic PETA exhibits concerning the meat we eat. I'm not a vegetarian, but it goes without saying that we all "know" how our food animals are raised. Every time I see a documentary or exhibit about these food animals I think twice. Don't you?

I do think twice, and that's why I cannot eat animals. I don't understand how you can know how factory farms raise and slaughter animals, and still eat them.

A lot of things to worry about other than snakes and gators being made into a purse.

This video has somehow motivated me to start using leather.

Brilliant! A pop-up shop like this should be put in every trendy shopping district. Sometimes you need shock tactics like this one to drive the message home.

Exactly! PeTA needs to be stopped before they kill more innocent animals.

Why shouldn't we use every part of the animals we have to kill? If only out of respect?
