A few years ago a photographer dropped by with his book and in it were a bunch of pictures of people literally string up by hooks and chains. I can't remember exactly what it was for, but it was an ad campaign and it completely, totally, utterly and without question creeped me out.
This does too.
I found it on copyranter, who found it on the Denver Eogist.
This freak show was put on in a London store window to protest mutilating sharks to make shark fin soup. I am definitely not in favor of mistreating animals for any reason, Certainly not for soup. But I agree with the Egoist whose headline was: "File under frickin' nutbag".
This is British performance artist (and card-carrying lunatic, I suspect) Alice Newstead hanging by shark hooks in a London soap shop (a soap shop? WTF?).
"How," asks the Egoist with all due sarcasm, "are we supposed to keep up by doing tri-fold brochures for clients when the world’s freaks keep raising the advertising bar with methods like this?"
