Stop Beating Your Monkey

Not to bring the tone down to an all time low, but I found the banned advertising video for Peta to be quite interesting.

Please do remember it is Peta and these ads were banned, therefore they maybe a little rough to watch for you sensitive types and probably not too safe for work. For those of you who have been living in a cave all these years, Peta is an organization who likes to use exaggerated and blown-out-of-proportion antics to get the media’s attention in an attempt to stop animal cruelty. Some parts of this video are sad, but others are quite humorous and the truth comes out in the end.

On a more somber note, trainers have confessed to the abuse of trained monkeys, apes, and orangutans in advertising. If this is true, then it’s a sad thing and should be put to an immediate stop! However, the site is sponsored by Peta and they have been known to stir the pot on occasion with a few exaggerated truths.

    I can’t believe they tried to defend raccoons.

    those were some damn funny ads though. they have such a brilliant execution to them. too bad we never see them on tv

    actually my favorite part, and this is seriously sick, was the garbage truck dumping cans full of dead dogs into the back of the truck. what a sucker punch to the emotion cortex.

    I’d have loved to see these during the superbowl…

    ….Wow that had to be some desturbing pictures.  It definatly wont make me stop eating meat, it just tastes to dam good to give up, especially rare steak.  I mean lets face it, we were put at the top of the food chain.  We kill and eat just about anything we want, so why would be lower ourselves to eating planets?  You need protien and proper neutrtion from meat, Yea i know they have pills for that but thats just fucked up.  They complain about having to many cats and dogs, i say lets send the to china or kanbodia cause they sure dont have a problem eating them! 

    Seeing those commericals during the superbowel might just be to graphic for that time.  I mean you need to remember that the super bowel is meant for the whole family, i sure as hell dont want to see some cats going at it in the middle of a game with my kids.  So just leave them online and maybe certain stations.

    Overall i did find the video to repeat alot of what we already know.  We knew they kept the animals in cages for the meat, veil, and fur.  We knew about the over population of cats and dogs but, some of us cant afford that kind of treatment.  We just need to remember that although they make good points we need to look at the bigger picture sometimes.  Cause if we dont eat the cows and chickens then your going to complain about how there over populated
