Greenpeace's milk ads do not go down easy
Apes and monkeys are all over adland these days. And not just in the planning department. (Hi-yo!) Here, Greenpeace in New Zealand blasts dairy company Fonterra for practices that contribute to the destruction of orangutans' rainforest homes. The spot has a creepy build-up. You know something bad's gonna happen. But it's ultimately more unsettling and icky than out-and-out horrific. Pfizer's got the gross-stuff-caught-in-your-throat market cornered, after all. Anyway, now we've got a beverage to wash down those Greenpeace orangutan-finger bars! Via Osocio.
