State of the Union video

By | January 29, 2007

If you’re looking for the video of the speech by that imbecile called Bush, you’ve clicked on the wrong link. Of course, if you stay long enough to watch, you might just come across some bush (if you know what I mean).

In this clever adaptation of bait and switch, PETA manages to keep your attention and deliver its message.

Yet the approach is not without its detractors.

Here’s one:
We didn’t really even pay attention to what she said because we were too busy lampooning her for her tasteless choice of underwear. If you’re going to exploit women as a gimmick to keep people from exploiting animals, can’t you at least find them better knickers than whatever they had lying around courtesy of their (already abusive) not-for-profit paycheques?

Ok, so you may not agree with PETA’s tactic, but do you shoot the message because of the messenger?

    either way it’s exploitation of women, as with most advertising campaigns these days.
