PETA has a brand new face for their first Halloween ad blitz, and it will be a very familiar one for all you RuPaul’s Drag Race fans — Sharon Needles! That’s right, Miss Needles is getting her flesh-eating zombie on to show that animals, like humans, are flesh and blood, and telling America, “If gnawing on flesh turns your stomach, why not go veg?”
“The campaign I’m donating my rotten face for is ‘Dead things should be buried, not eaten,’” Needles explains in the above behind-the-scenes interview. “Being a vegetarian, it kind of shows how gory it is to see ripped off arms and ripped off hands of people of our own species. But I think it brings a campy, disturbing and grotesque realization to the fact that that’s how animals are being treated, especially in commercial farming.”
Sharon also explained she just did not want to give up an opportunity to have buckets of blood dumped all over her head.
The ads will be hitting NYC soon, and for more Sharon head to Logo to check out FEARce! Hosted By Sharon Needles, launching with a Sharon Needles FEARCEFest on October 28 and a Sharon Needles Halloween FEARCEFest on October 31, before premiering November 1.
