PETA had an aggrement to feature Jenna Morasca, the latest Survivor winner, in an upcoming anti-fur ad campaign. Apparently a deal with CBS and PETA was in place as long as PETA did not mention the word Survivor in the ad. However, at the last minute, CBS backed out saying her appearance in the ad would interfere with her contractual obligations to the network.
Morasca was to appear in a faux fur bikini in the "Wear Fake for the Animal's Sake" ad campaign. I guess they'll have to revert to their blood spattered fur approach of old.
A nifty look at a designers efforts to escape the advertising business:

To fight against the potential further FCC loosening of consolidation rules in it's upcoming June 2 meeting, MoveOn.org and Common Cause have banded together to create a new campaign featuring Rupert Murdoch. The TV spots show Murdoch on all channels with the viewer clicking his remote in a vain effort to switch to a non-Murdoch channel.
The voiceover reads, "On June 2nd, the Republicans on the FCC plan to get rid of an important regulation so that Rupert Murdoch can buy more TV stations, radio stations and newspapers, giving him control over much of the news you hear. This monopoly is no game."
Murdoch's company, News Corp owns Fox TV, eight cable networks, 34 TV stations, newspapers, movies studios...and the list goes on.
The campaign does have a point. Every where you look, there is intense media consolidation. The benefit is supposed to be lower costs of operation and better cross-media deals for advertisers. Rather, it has produced a lack of individuality and a sameness across many media outlets. Competition is a good thing. There is less and less of that with this move towards mega-consolidation.

Wasn't Jewel this conservative, "don't stare at my big boobs" folk type singer? Now she's gone totally Britney! Like ApeChild says, she figured out that sex sells. Literally. Look at her video. It's filled with spoof logo's. At least this version is. And talk about transformation. Just look at that butt shot. I guess butts are the theme of the day today at Adrants...see the post below.
