ALICIA SILVERSTONE BARES ALL IN EL PASO

Sexy Ad to Promote Vegetarian Fitness After City Named One of America’s Fattest

El Paso, Texas — Showing off her fit, veggie-powered body, sexy Alicia Silverstone goes au naturel in a TV ad campaign aimed at reminding residents of El Paso—which was recently named one of America’s fattest cities by Men’s Fitness magazine—that going vegetarian is the best way to get slim and stay healthy.

“The Sun City’s love affair with meat is making its residents fat—and could literally be killing them,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “If the good people of El Paso want to shed their ‘saddlebags’ and get on the road to good health, the best thing that they can do is go vegetarian.”

“I’m Alicia Silverstone, and I’m a vegetarian,” Silverstone says as she emerges from a swimming pool and reveals how going vegetarian does a body good. “There’s nothing in the world that’s changed me as much as this. I feel so much better and have so much more energy.”

Vegetarians weigh on average 10 to 20 pounds less than meat-eaters do. Consumption of meat and other animal products has been conclusively linked to heart disease, diabetes, several types of cancer, and, of course, obesity. Meat production is also responsible for the daily suffering and deaths of billions of factory-farmed animals who are deprived of everything that’s natural and important to them. Animals are often still conscious as they are dismembered in slaughterhouses.

The 30-second ad will air in El Paso on KVIA-TV (ABC) during the week of June 22. It was directed by Dave Meyers, who has directed more than 180 music videos, including rapper Missy Elliott’s groundbreaking “Work It” video, which won MTV’s “Best Video of the Year” award. Meyers also directed Elliott’s Grammy Award–winning video “Lose Control.”

“The Sun City’s love affair with meat is making its residents fat—and could literally be killing them,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “If the good people of El Paso want to shed their ‘saddlebags’ and get on the road to good health, the best thing that they can do is go vegetarian.”
