From vegan red carpet bath bombs (last year’s PETA swag bag contribution) to secret spy pens, PETA has joined the ranks of swag bag product providers.
A spy pen that would “make any James Bond wannabe green with envy,” the PETA website claims, “These stealthy recording devices fit discreetly into a shirt pocket and enable compassionate crew members, actors, or anyone else on a film or television set to document animal abuse and report it.”
PETA then lauds the use of computer-generated imagery instead of “forcing” real animals to perform “on and off camera,” and comments on whistleblowers claiming animal abuse on movie sets – claims that have been debunked. “Whistleblowers are crucial to exposing cruelty to animals, and we think Hollywood’s A-listers are perfect for the role.”
The super spy pen will join other highly sought-after swag bag products such as the toilet plunger by a company called Mr. Poop and cannabis-infused chocolates, according to a USA Today report.
One keen observer suggested the tables be turned on the notorious animal rights group. Take the spy pen on a visit to one of the PETA-run kill shelters and surreptitiously film PETA staff killing dogs and cats instead of adopting them out. Now that is the stuff of horror movies.
