Gilliam at least looks embarrassed
I've been incommunicado for various reasons, but something has finally roused me from my blogging torpor.
I was flicking through this month's copy of delicious. when I read that actress Greta Scacchi has teamed up with Japanese restaurant Soseki and various other celebs to save the bluefin tuna as well as other piscine beasties.
The main focus of the campaign is to encourage us to boycott restaurants which don't serve fish from sustainable sources.
That's all well and good, but how will the lovely Greta achieve her laudable aims?
Answer? By posing naked with a fish.
It's all right though, apparently the cod isn't dead - though it's probably gasping however quickly the photographer Rankin claims to work.
Yep, I bet Nobu are quivering in their boots.
Now this poster campaign has been knocking around for a good while, but I've never really looked at the pictures before.
And you know what happens when I look too closely at things.
In case it needs spelling out:
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgggghhhhhhh - she's rubbing a dead fish against her lady-thatch!
And where for the love of God is its tail going???
Greta has been quoted as saying "The first round of images are very striking - weird, witty, very saucy and some sensual"
I guess Greta's little ploy works though, because frankly it's put me off eating fish altogether.
Anyway, if you too would like to be immortalised as a fish-loving pervert, you can apply to pose for Rankin here.
