Controversial Commercials

An article appeared yesterday in The New York Times in regards to the spots that PETA ran in several states during the Westminster Dog Show (which by the way a Beagle won for the very first time in the history of the dog show).

You can see one of the spots here:

Although I am firm believer of supporting shelters and rescues, especially since having adopted little Riley, I am a little disturbed by the commercial. They ran two other ads which I still didn’t find any humor in. Did these commercials succeed in changing anyone’s thoughts when they begin to look into bringing a bundle of fur into their home?
