Human Battery Cages

I don’t normally agree with PETA‘s tactics. Sex with vegetables, nude women against fur, etc. They’ve really outdone themselves recently with this ad which manages to make light of domestic abuse and (I think?) drug addiction in the name of promoting veganism.

But I think they’ve nailed it in one particular instance. Commissioning splatter-gore purveyors, Troma Films, they’ve made the clip below, highlighting the horrors of factory farming.

WARNING: It’s pretty gruesome but that’s the reality for billions of intensively-farmed animals around the world every day. What do you think?

  2. I’ve posted the video on other social media sites and a few people have made the observation that the shot of the young girl eating the flesh at the end is a distraction from the main issue; according to one, “a bridge too far”.
    I’m inclined to agree. It’s not on point but it’s classic horror movie stuff, the gross ‘reveal’ at the end, bringing back viewer empathy which has been lost as we necessarily de-sensitize to the images we’ve been watching.
