Animal rights group Peta caused a car crash during a naked shower protest, a report has said.
According to the Daily Mail, an LA driver had been distracted by the beautiful, naked models soaping themselves in a makeshift shower on the side of the road.
He ploughed his grey sedan straight into the back of a white pick-up truck at a stoplight in front of him.
CBS cameras captured the entire incident, the report said. Fortunately the damage appeared to be minimal.
A similar protest was also held in London’s Trafalgar Square – with Playboy models taking a bath.
The group claims that by giving up just one pound (about 450 grams) of meat, Americans could save more than 9000 litres of water.
That’s six months of shower water, Peta claimed.
But the American Meat Association hit back in comments to CBS, claiming that the industry is constantly trying to find ways to economise on water.
“Sometimes, when people do these sorts of carbon-footprint analysis, the obvious answer is the opposite of what they thought it was,” spokesman Jeremy Russell reportedly told the network.
“Water use is actually quite expensive for meat companies. There is a constant pressure, an economic pressure on them, to become more and more efficient in how they use water.”
