    PETA bashes Mario (and Wii) while promoting there anti-KFC platformer!

    In the process of some serious KFC bashing, seems PETA is into some serious copyright infringement while they insult Mario (and friends) as part of there "comic" cut scenes. The game starts with Mario and his brother unable to save "Princess Pam", due to Wii related injuries, leaving a pair of chicks (baby chickens) to platform across a Mario-like world instead.

    In this world you eat Tofu to power up like the super mushroom, doubling your size, and jump on the KFC flag pole to end each level. Along with it's propaganda within the game about animal cruelty, the game seems to focus about as much attention on Mario. Mario ends up being served a large number of "mishaps" such as getting jumped by a PETA activist for stomping on Koopa Troopas, and getting slapped by Peach for wanting to save another princess besides her. The Mario bashing continues in-between each level.

    I dunno if this is old news or not but it's new to me, and probably others as well. Here is the link, I want to hear what people think about this...

    (Yes, it is obviously serious.) I don't think PETA maintains there page on Wikipedia namely due to the fact of bias-based material that would be found there. You might have to utilize google and manually pour through PETA's propaganda on it's various websites for a more clear picture.

    I'm guessing that since PETA is taking a video game approach they are using the Mario icon as a means to score credibility for themselves. Mario is a well known icon, and the Wii itself is getting alot of attention, so basically by means of stealing some of the spotlight from Nintendo for themselves.

    I have read forum threads and comments in the past about PETA supporters belly aching over Mario stomping animals teaches kids it's "okay to kill animals" as adults. I took it has a drop in the ocean and never thought about it again until now. I understand the desire to push there own "heroes" by stealing some spotlight and attempting to be comical in the process however there focus between KFC and Mario are almost balanced.

    PETA has always been a borderline violent society resorting in extreme means to prevent the usage of animal based products and testing. PETA supports have been known to break the law in the past, and doesn't surprise me that they are willing to infringe on copyrights at all.

    Personally I am thankful for all the mice and lab rats who have been sacrificed to protect and promote better health and living for us all. Until wild animals stop looking at us as snacks then I will consider doing the same.

    Ok now remember how is it wrong to use rats that kill millions of people yearly because they carry around all those decieses that kill ppl right. Also Nintendo should take some leggall action against them.

    Is PETA the radical Nature lover group that often protests at places completely naked and sometimes breaks into zoos to free animals? If so, they suck. I support animal rights but they just strengthen the stereotype that nature lovers are a bunch of dangerous hippies.


    EDIT :: Just played the game, and if that information about Scalding Chickens alive etc. is true, then KFC really needs to be sued or forced to change their ways. But I still think PETA is a bunch of radicals.
