After watching PETA's online video showing "undercover footage of Ringling Bros. trainers as they beat elephants with sharp metal bullhooks," G4 Host and geektress-hearthrob Olivia Munn (LAist Interview) decided to get involved to bring attention to the issue, according to the LA Weekly.

Today a billboard at Wilshire and Highland was unveiled featuring her nude--artfully, of course--with this text: "As Nature Intended, Let Elephants Be Free. Boycott the Circus."

At a press conference this morning, she said she wanted a photo that was "more powerful than sexual," noted the Weekly. "If anyone goes to the circus after this. I'll find you and smash a glass in your face. Real talk," she said.
