Former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan strips down for PETA

Welcome to the jungle but don’t you dare attempt to utilize any of its inhabitant’s fur or skin for clothing.

That’s the message former Guns N’ Roses bass guitarist Duff McKagan along with his supermodel wife, Susan Holmes McKagan, are conveying in their new “Ink, Not Mink” ad for animal rights organization PETA.

The ad shows a very naked—except for shoes and jewelry—Susan in a full side embrace of her shirtless husband Duff, who of course has his trusty guitar gently resting against his wife’s leg.

Susan, who used to rock the fur look herself before learning the harsh truth behind the disgusting industry said, "I think everyone should share responsibility in bringing more awareness that, hey, [fur's] not necessary, it's out of fashion, it's completely immoral to the animals."

The McKagan’s join Mario, Chad Ochocinco, Gilbert Arenas and Chester Bennington in the “Ink Not Mink” cause.
