However you feel about consuming animals and their by-products, wearing their bodies or just flat-out how they affect your diet, I think we can all agree about one thing from the latest ad courtesy of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals:

United States men’s national team and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is tatted and jacked.

Sure, there’s some photoshop involved, but Howard looks like a mix of an UFC fighter, a lumberjack and an artistically-altered character from “300.” No wonder the dude’s a veritable brick wall in net. He has apparently eaten bricks and they’ve lodged themselves in his abdomen.

I’m almost willing to bet Howard can do a plank for the duration of “Braveheart.”

As for the political side, from PETA:

What motivated Tim to join the lineup of top athletes—including Terrell Suggs, Willis McGahee, Maurice Jones-Drew, and Metta World Peace—who have signed up with Team PETA?

“Protecting animals is very important to me, and I think speaking out against fur is an amazing cause,” he says. “When I see someone wearing fur, I just want to sit them down in front of one of PETA’s videos and show them just how badly animals suffer for this supposed fabric that no one needs.”

    “Sure, there’s some photoshop involved…” Do you have any source regarding that comment at all?

      My source is my eyes. Whether it’s air-brushed, make up or another form of alteration instead of Photoshop is up for debate, but this is a multi-million dollar ad budget in action. Sure he mostly looks like that, but come on…
