Even though movies try and be as animal friendly as possible, the life of an animal actor is not an easy one.
Anyone who's seen the trailer for The Hangover Part III knows that animals can get the short end of the stick in films sometimes.
Like the giraffe that gets decapitated while being driven around by Zach Galifianakis.
PETA was clearly not happy when they saw this, even though it's just CGI.
PETA doesn't have a reputation of being subtle to get their point across.
In what's sure to be a semi-controversial ad, PETA got seksi Adrien Brody to lend his soothing voice for a commercial featuring the great ape!
Set in an interrogation room - the suicidal ape fiddles around with a loaded gun while Brody talks about how apes have been mistreated in Hollywood.
It's quite effective and scary!!!

Viola Davis is really good at playing strong women in film.
We're starting to realize it's possible she's so good at acting those parts because she IS a strong woman in real life!
On behalf of PETA, the award winning actress wrote to the Senator Susan Sosnowski of Rhode Island, and urged her to end the maltreatment of elephants that travel with some circuses.
Here's some of what she said:
Ricky Gervais is a kind-hearted, caring man who also just happens to be crazy HIGHlarious!
Ricky has worked with the WSPA, Cruelty Free International and PETA.
So he's a huuuuge animal rights supporter and activist. But how can he best help out his animal buddies??
Firefighters in Atlanta don't just put out burning buildings or pull cats out of trees.
They also save ducklings!!
Apparently, a mother duck was going crazy after her ducklings fell down a storm drain, and a PETA member called the fire department.
The firemen sprung into action, arriving at the scene, removing the grate, climbing down and rescuing all 8 baby ducks!
Michael Vartan from the amazing show Alias has joined up with PETA to offer pet owners some tips and advice on how to maximize one's walks with their pet dog!
There's really some wonderful information here like don't rush your dog and don't pull on its leash.
Well, after all a dog walk is for your dog — not you!!
Allow your doggy to enjoy the walk as much as it can!
No one can do that if they are being dragged!!!
