YIKES. PLEASE STOP CLIMBING UP ON STAGE AND GUTTING FISH WHILE THEY ARE STRIPPING. IT IS INHUMANE TO THE FISH AND ALSO HORRIFYING AND VERY SURPRISING WHEN YOU ARE NOT EXPECTING IT. INSTEAD, PLEASE SMASH THE FISH STRIPPER’S HEADS AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE STAGE TO KILL THEM, AND THEN GUT THEM. BETTER.

  1. sickest part. i was REALLY into the strip tease before … um…. that other thing that happened.
    time to readjust my number on the kinsey scale.

  2. Objectification of women and simplistic animal-rights stance? PETA, is that you?

    • when i saw this on jezebel, i was horrified, but not surprised at all.
      here – i figure i can laugh about its absurdity rather than spout the obligatory OMGWIMMIN’ response jezebel seems to elicit from everyone.

      that doesn’t make it any less horrific though.

      • Yeah, that was pretty Jezebel of me, wasn’t it?

        I was just pleased to see it wasn’t another anti-Canadian sealing ad. That hurts me more than the sexist ones.

  3. I love when horrific violence against women is used to make a completely un-analogous point! I can’t wait for the PSA that shows a woman being burned to death in order to discourage kids from killing ants with magnifying glasses.

  4. Because fish are just like people!

  5. once again….yikes. Just yikes.

  6. What bouncer lets a fishmonger with a harpoon into a strip club? Outside of boats and lakes, you would think regular land people would stop that shit.

  7. For an interesting exercise, try imagining if you’d react differently if instead of an attractive, barely-clothed model, the “fish” was an alcoholic, elderly homeless man.

    • well that’s completely different. it’s the fish’s fault he’s homeless and an alcoholic. I modestly propose we eat those types of fish…. because they’re delicious.

  8. “It’s okay to eat fish, ’cause they don’t have any feelings”

    See it’s no biggie, Kurt Cobain said so.

  9. Why didn’t someone tell me this 5 minutes ago?

  10. It doesn’t even exactly make metaphor-grammar sense either, right? “Stripping while alive” – the lady is doing the stripping herself in the metaphor, while in reality the fisher is doing the stripping to the fish? It would suggest that in the metaphor the lady should wait until she is dead to take off her clothes?
    i mean, on top of the whole what-the-Jesus-fucking-Christ problem of the ad.

  11. I don’t get it. While alive? How is she like a fish(!!!)?

  12. Why is there a PSA about this? Fish don’t have the proper brain hookups to experience pain. Just like how strippers don’t have feelings.

  13. That was hilarious. Who knew Captain Ahab would find his revenge in a strip club?

  14. So what they are saying is when we kill a fish, we are killing other fishes fish strippers? I’d feel bad for murdered fish if a trout had ever given me a lap dance.

  16. Real message: Douching = yikes!

    I’m confused by this, of course. Are they saying that if you’re going to gut a stripper you should make sure she’s unconscious? I mean, if a stripper absolutely HAS to be disemboweled, by all means knock the poor girl out, but it seems like her being conscious is a minor detail next to the fact that her organs are being pulled out… And I’m as baffled as everyone else as to how this says anything at all about fish. But if I’m ever so aroused by a live fish, I promise to intervene in its disembowelment.

  18. That country has very few problems if this is high on the PSA list. I want to go to there.

  19. wow. i had no idea fish had all that going on for them underwater. fish FTW (minus the I Know What You Did Last Summer fisherman).

    Sooo much more effective than any Peta ad. Simple, shocking and the point is clear.

    Peta should just disband. They fail at every aspect of animal rights and now it’s clear it isn’t the subject matter that makes their ads both annoying and intolerable. Peta just sucks.

  22. i’m gonna start yelling “Word Wakker!” at any sleeping person i come across.
    no one could possibly object to being woken up to that phrase.

    Actually in Dutch the tagline works very well, it just doesnt translate so well. The campaign was aimed at a Dutch audience about 3 weeks ago… The ngo who commissioned it is know for causing a stir and create discussions through media use. In that sense, reading all the comments here, on youtube and other places, I think it was successful for them! Another small thing, the actor is a wellknown Dutch comedian, so for a Dutch audience its probably easier to understand the irony and perhaps ‘over-the-top’ tone of voice…

  24. Is this some sort of allusion to the smell of a stripper’s genitalia?

  25. “Strippers, the other white meat”
