Midnight Phantom Actor Exposes Abs and Animal Suffering in Pro-Vegan PETA Asia Campaign

For Immediate Release:
July 13, 2017

Makati — Posing shirtless with an impressive pair of silver angel wings against a heavenly white background, actor and model Rafael Rosell appears in a divine new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia proclaiming, “Earn Your Wings: Go Vegan.” Top photographer Wesley Villarica shot the otherworldly image at Parallax Studio, and artist Cha Laxamana painted the intricate angel wings.

“You don’t have to lead a sinless life to become an angel for animals,” says Rosell. “You simply need to choose delicious cruelty-free dishes such as chickpea kaldereta and tofu sisig, which will improve your health, combat climate change, and spare countless animals immense pain and a terrifying death.”

PETA Asia—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that in today’s industrialized meat and dairy industries, chickens’ throats are cut (often while they’re still conscious), piglets’ tails and testicles are chopped off without any pain relief, and calves are taken away from their mothers within hours of birth. In addition to causing the daily suffering of billions of farmed animals, eating meat and other animal-derived foods has been conclusively linked to an increased risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.

Rosell joins a slew of other meat-free celebrities, including Geneva Cruz and Chin Chin Gutierrez, who have teamed up with PETA Asia to promote kindness to animals.
