Tupperware sets are so 2009.

Go ask Katy Perry and Russell Brand, who just received a seriously wacky wedding gift from PETA India and Animal Rahat.   

So, what exactly did the animal rights groups have in store for the newlyweds?

A young bull named Russell. 

"Russell the celebrity and Russell the bullock have something in common: they are both very handsome fellows," Poorva Joshipura of PETA India tells Reuters.

The animal is apparently a traditional present.

"The gift of a namesake is also fitting because just as Russell Brand embarks on his new life as a married man, Russell the bullock has also been given a new lease on life—the heavy loads he once pulled have been lifted from his shoulders for good," explains Joshipura.

Animal Rahat, which gives free aid to animals, and the local branch of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals reportedly have yet to hear from Brand, a long-time animal rights defender, and his new missus.

News of the the gift comes a week after the oddball couple swapped vows—and shot down a tabloid rumor that they gave each other exotic creatures as gifts. As the false report went, Perry supposedly gifted her groom with an elephant and he bestowed a Bengal tigress on her in return.

That turned out to be plain crazy. But this latest gift is no bull.
