jeej! There should be more farting in advertising.

They are kind of losing me by ending with visuals of cows taking a shit and a (human?) farting (hard!) in his bed.

the cow shit is responsible for lots of CO2 emissions. Its a message to eat less meat. The human fart is a metaphore. I like this ad very much!
