Joaquin Phoenix is not only known for his acting chops, but also for his ability to get his point across in dramatic fashion. The Best Actor nominee is starring in a new PETA ad to promote veganism, and it’s definitely raising some eyebrows! In the video, the 38-year-old actor is completely submerged in water, panicking and struggling to breathe, to depict a fish's last dying moment. In the promo, he urges viewers to “try to relate” and “go vegan.”

Check out the vid to see the ad that you won’t see during the Academy Awards!
