This video is PETA’s latest attempt to make you feel guilty for liking delicious things.
That video is RIDICULOUS. I mean, seriously, c’mon. Really? What restaurant has a live fish just sitting on the cutting board like that? Absurd. A lobster I would’ve believed. I don’t know if I’m more impressed with how oblivious PETA is or how badly overacted the entire video was. By the way, whenever I see spousal abuse in a commercial I like to think it’s because the wife made her husband a frozen pizza for dinner. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S NOT DELIVERY!!!”
I’d actually like to start writing videos for PETA if I could. That’s got to be a fun brainstorm session.
Ad Director: Okay guys, we need to make a commercial that really drives home the fact that eating meat is evil. Whad’ya got?
Writer 1: I’m thinking we intercut footage of the Bataan Death March with video of a dog and a shepard herding sheep.
Ad Director: Nice, I like it. What else?
Writer 2: I thought maybe we could have a Jerry Sandusky lookalike order veal at a fancy Italian restaurant.
Ad Director: LOVE IT! Eating veal IS like molesting children. Next.
Writer 3: I don’t have anything concrete but I’m picturing drawing a comparison between like, abortion and scrambled eggs, or something. Maybe like a an abortionist named “Dr. Benedict” and something with eggs benedict. I don’t know, just spitballing.
Ad Director: No it’s cool. I like where your head’s at. Great job guys. Keep up the good work, I gotta go, I’ve got a meeting with the Jewish Defense League. They’re all pissed that we compared a cattle ranch to Dachau.
Seriously, I’d be awesome at that.
