  • PETA is gonna have a field day with this

    dbkii says:
  • …but it’s all post from what I understand.

    brian says:
  • ..and it seems to be hard to create something new. I like the watch ad.

  • Ha. Yeah, PETA sues for libel/slander on behalf of the animals

    mstndvn says:
  • pretty sure i saw that squirrel in williamsburg

    g says:
  • where’s the pajamas and sweaters and jewelry and boxing trunks?

    charles says:
  • it’s just photoshop … they didn’t actually shave the animals ….

    emery says:
  • chicken and monkey are ok, but squirrel looks a bit strange. under cat’s coat seems is grey fabric. Maybe it is poor photo retouch if cat is real shaved.

    retoucher says:
  • For the sake of Braun I hope this is only photoshop
