Remarketing Animal Cruelty: Running Of The Nudes

The Naked Truth: the race is cruel(?) Spanish speakers do not be confused. Although this banner is being held in Pamplona the text is actually Italian.
The OverDrone was doing his daily google search for post-modern neo-feminist,conservative, libertarian punk, Catholic, lesbian blogs when he saw a banner ad across the bottom of a page.
Forsaking their blood soaked past, PETA has come up with a brilliant first act leading up to the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
Every year what looks to be hundreds of young fit people gather to protest the seven hundred year old human/bovine interface.Neither PETA nor the bulls mind the goring of drunken tourists. It is the bullfighting which PETA object to. Far more eyecatching then a splash of blood on a mink coat, this four year old tradition was begun to show Pamplona that "that it doesn't need to torture animals for tourism."
Who will this deter from running with the bulls? The OverDrone is sure that many people just tack an extra few days to the beginning of their bull running vacation. A couple of days spent watching naked protestors would get anyone's blood pumping for a bull run.
Now imagine being chased by the protestors down those same streets. It might go something like the video below.
