NASCAR Talladega Chicken Dance Draws PETA Protest

April 22, 2009

Not sure if you’ve read about this yet, but PETA—the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals—plans a protest Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. That’s where NASCAR fans will attempt to set a record for the world’s largest mass chicken dance. Orlando Sentinel

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked Guinness World Records to ignore an attempt to set a world record for the largest group chicken dance at Talladega, site of the Aaron’s 499 race on Sunday. Atlantic Online

But track spokeswoman Kristi King says the world record attempt has been planned for awhile. And she said track officials plan to go ahead with the promotion.

KFC called PETA a radical organization that’s only interested in promoting a vegan agenda. Dothan (Alabama) Eagle

Letter from PETA to Guinness Book of World Records

April 20, 2009

Craig Glenday
Editor in Chief
Guinness World Records Ltd.

Dear Mr. Glenday,

On behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and our more
than 2 million members and supporters worldwide, I am writing regarding the
upcoming attempt by fast-food giant KFC to set the record for the largest group
“chicken dance” at Talladega Superspeedway. In the past, Guinness has rightly
stated that it will “not accept records based on the killing or harming of animals.”
I urge you to go a step further and refuse to accept any records from companies
that have refused to adopt even modest humane reforms that would reduce the
needless suffering of animals killed for their fast-food restaurants.

Video footage, which KFC executives have seen and which has been shown on
television all over the U.S., shows KFC’s suppliers forcing birds into metal
shackles, often breaking their wings and legs. Many are still alive when they are
dragged through tanks of scalding-hot water. Workers at a KFC “Supplier of the
Year” were documented stomping on live birds, spitting tobacco into their eyes,
and spray painting their faces. KFC abuses chickens in ways that could warrant
felony cruelty-to-animals charges if dogs or cats were the victims. The company
has done nothing to stop the worst abuses of chickens, despite the availability of a
far less cruel slaughter method that is cost-effective. In fact, five of KFC’s animal
welfare advisors resigned out of frustration with KFC’s utter lack of progress.

The Guinness Book of World Records celebrates real achievement—it should not
be used to publicize stunts by cruel, unethical companies such as KFC. Please
contact me at 000-000-0000 or XXX@XXX.XXX to discuss this issue further.

Thank you for your consideration.

Very truly yours,

Ingrid E. Newkirk
President

Letter from Guinness Book of World Records to PETA

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
501 Front Street
Norfolk, VA, 23510

Ms. Ingrid E. Newkirk,

We at Guinness have received your letter regarding PETA’s complaints about KFC’s attempt to set a world record for the largest group chicken dance this Sunday at Talladega, home of the Aaron’s 499 race. If there is one thing that Guinness World Records prides itself on, it is propriety. Your plea has not fallen on deaf ears.

In addition to en-drunkening the Irish, and publishing books that line toilet tanks worldwide, Guinness is known for one thing and that one thing is respect for animals.

Who can deny that worldwide opinion of barnyard athleticism was not raised to new heights when our organization dutifully recorded the world’s highest jump by a pig? Were not goats taken more seriously after we publicized the record-setting width of "Uncle Sam’s" longest domestic goat horns (52 inches)? Did we not shine a bright beacon of hope for harmony within the animal kingdom when we documented the oldest kinkajou living in captivity, giving proof to the world that humans and huggy bears can coexist in peace?

Some might suggest that your letter was a waste of time and will not be taken seriously by people who were present to see the most sheep shorn in eight hours. To the contrary, we think your letter will accomplish much good. By trying to prevent people from flapping their arms and kicking their feet to an oom-pah song in a group setting, we believe that we can prevent the inhumane practices your organization alleges that KFC undertakes.

Sad to say, KFC may proceed with this promotion, as is its right. But if because of our actions here even just one person at a wedding somewhere pauses during the bridge of the song – the part normally reserved for dancers to move about like airplanes (as if chickens could fly!) – then won’t we have made a difference?

It is in the spirit of the chicken dance, odious as we find the act, that we link arms with PETA and swing with you in the name of animal justice. And may our actions repeat themselves faster and faster, and our battle against injustice accelerate at a dizzying pace, until all animal cruelty comes to a sudden, complete and unexpected stop.

Sincerely,

Craig Glenday
Editor-In-Chief of Guinness World Records

Scott and Dominica’s Wedding Reception

You can see the caricature that my uncle Leo Richardson did for us that is on the table top. The centerpiece had instructions for people to get up and sing a song that had the word "love" in it to get us to kiss instead of clinking forks to glasses.
