Michael Vick, new PETA spokesperson?

Bet you never saw this one coming:

Michael Vick is in talks to become the new spokesman for PETA.

Yea, that Michael Vick.

Yea, that PETA.

According to Ad Age, the next time you see Vick, he may be educating you on the evils of dogfighting in a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals public service announcement.

The potential PETA spot is part of a larger PR campaign to improve the public image of the ex-Falcons phenom. And PETA is excited to sign him up.

"I can do it until I'm blue in the face and it might not convince anybody," Dan Shannon, director of youth outreach and campaigns for PETA, told adage.com. "Michael Vick sure can. He can say, 'Look, I did it, I was wrong, and it ruined my career,'"

ESPN has reported that Vick will be released from prison on May 20 and serve out the last two months of his sentence in home confinement in Virginia.
