WTF Are You Doing?: PETA Goes On Pokemon Offensive
Because PETA has zero clue how to be a driving force in the fight for animal rights, the organization has launched a campaign against Pokemon. SPOILER: It will not be super effective.
In response to Sunday's United States debut of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, PETA has released a parody game called "Pokémon Black and Blue" with the tagline "Gotta free 'em all."
The game has users play as an escaped Pokémon, Pikachu, who fights trainers so that other Pokémon can also escape the abuse of being forced to fight.
"Much like animals in the real world, Pokémon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments," PETA wrote in a statement.
Listen: I'm all for animal rights but this IS NOT HOW YOU GO ABOUT GETTING THEM. You're just pissing money away -- get your act together, PETA. Please note: My offer to pose nude in one of your, "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" ads still stands, but only if you bodypaint my peen to look like a fox.
Thanks to chichi, Shane, Bibbity Bobbity Bacon and louise, who agree making a parody video game is rarely the path to animal rights.
