Innocent shoppers were covered in blood after trying on leather goods, and you won't believe why
Think twice next time you go on a shopping spree....
What would you do if you tried on a luxury pair of high heels, only for your feet to come out covered in blood? Sounds like something out of a horror movie, but for shoppers at a trendy shopping mall in Bangkok this nightmare became reality.
Upon the opening of a luxury leather store, The Leatherwork, shoppers flocked to get their hands on premium luxury goods made of crocodile skin and snake skin. But what they would find inside the bags, shoes, wallets and gloves would make their stomach turn.

OMG! These "exotic leather bags" were filled with what looked like the insides of the creature that was killed to make it! And no, this isn't some crazy new fashion trend (thank God!!!) but rather the work of animal rights group, PETA Asia.
This interactive installation created by Ogilvy & Mather Advertising Bangkok was disguised as a pop-up shop in order to shock unsuspecting shoppers in search of high-end leather goods. Hmmm..... I don't know about you but if I ever saw THIS in a luxury department store, I'd run right out and never go back...... and definitely never buy leather products again!

The look on these people's faces is priceless! Hopefully they've all learnt their lesson! Innocent animals are killed (or skinned alive in some cases) to create exotic leather products. In fact, it takes the skin of FOUR crocodiles to make one leather hand bag!
It just shows, luxury bags may be beautiful, but they come at a high price.... and it's worth more than any amount of dollars you can spend!
