(Scroll down for video) A group of young women were seen walking on the streets of China, with crab on leashes.
A restaurant in Beijing, hired the women to walk down the street as part of a promotional stunt to draw attention to their seafood menu.
The stunt was orchestrated by the same artist, who came up with a project earlier this year, called cabbage walking.
Crab activists complained that the advertising stunt is cruel, but the restaurant is happy about all the attention that the promotion drew.
“It was fun, and now everyone knows our name, and I do not care about the few people who complained that the crab were suffering,” restaurant manager Peng Mai said.
“What I can say is that they did not suffer much because after they were brought back to the restaurant they had a quick wash and went straight into the pot,” he said.
