Greenpeace Celebrates 40 Years of Pissing People Off

Peter Thwaites crafts birthday spot

Here's an amusing little 40th-birthday spot for Greenpeace, directed by Peter Thwaites (of Georgeous/Les Télécréateurs), in which various greedy corporate bigwigs literally curse the group after being defeated in some sort of environmental scuffle. Greenpeace celebrated its anniversary in Vancouver yesterday—40 years to the day since the Don't Make a Wave Committee sent a boat named Greenpeace from Vancouver to Amchitka Island, Alaska, to protest American nuclear testing there. The group subsequently adopted the name Greenpeace.
