Jamie Bamber Gets Naked for Bears


Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber goes bare for bears in the latest ad for PETA, meant to help save black bears who die for their fur. Canadian Black Bears are apparently used to make the fur caps for the Queen's Guard.

Says Bamber: "The obvious alternative is to make caps out of faux fur. You know, use synthetic materials to avoid killing a beautiful animal. They're not to keep warm. It's not particularly freezing outside Buckingham Palace. You could wear something else. And you could certainly wear faux fur."

  2. The Google ad (for me at least) popping up under this story is for a furier. D'oh, better see if you can fix that!

  3. I'm all for bare skin vs. bearskin, but faux fur? Oh, right, the stuff made from petroleum products. That'll really help things out. We've got lots of that. Drill, baby drill! (isn't that how it goes?)

    Perhaps wool or hemp would be a better alternative. Or bare skin!

  4. I so wanted him to be one of the final 5 despite being Adama's son. Somehow someway a final 5r so we could see him pop up naked in a jelly amniotic resurrection bath

    oh well, I'm a sci-fi geek and if you have no clue what I'm talking about then watch BSG

  5. That man is sex on a stick. But his hair this season is awful. And I miss seeing him in uniform... or a towel.

  6. oh I know what bear skin I'd want to see on him... mine!

  7. This can be effective. I mean, I imagine many people would stop supporting the fur industry if only he'd put his clothes back on. I know I would. Ew.

  8. I don't agree with PETA, but Bamber sure is cute.

  9. Making the bearskin caps from anything else won't stop the killing of a single bear.

    The bears are culled each year because the population is exploding. There are now over 200,000 bears in Ontario and Quebec alone.

  11. Doesn't get much better than that. Delicious. The deadly combo of both cute AND hott.

  13. Wow a man with chest hair. GRRR!

  14. I'm confused. Does this mean people have been wearing the hides of gay male bears as fashion? Isn't that illegal in most jurisdictions?

  15. Oh, Jaimie, Jaimie, you'll get nekked for PETA but not for me? There is no justice in this world.

  17. Turn in for Law & Order UK (ITV) for more Bamber this season. First episode aired yesterday.

  18. Must ... save ... bears.

  19. While I appreciate, Mr Bambers take on it, they do not make that many fur hats a year and that there are over 500,000 black bears in Canada alone. Also the fur used comes from road kills, licsened hunters or local population culls, they are NOT endangered. Still great pose.

  20. ...makes me want to go out and club a seal.

  22. OT: Slow news week? I haven't seen the news on Towleroad so stagnant in a long time... ;)

  23. @ NIC
    Calm down NIC. I'm not really going to club a baby seal. Truly.
    It's a reaction to the hectoring, lumpenly literal, nature of zealots who want to nag, badger and threaten me into living my life their way...
    You know, the usual, intolerance.

  24. Is there really a big market for bear skin? I doubt it.

    Posted by: anon | Feb 25, 2009 9:33:19 AM

  25. He is not even naked. Don't celebrities usually go naked for these ads. Big deal he's not wearing a shirt. Either show us some cock or shut the hell up.
