“Got Ethics?” campaign spoofs sexist California milk ads

Posted by Tom Megginson | 28-07-2011 14:12 | Category: Animal rights

The California Milk Processors “PMS” campaign by Goodby Silverstein & Partners, which caused much outrage over its sexist message, has already been parodied by an American animal rights group.

Here’s one of the “Got Milk” ads:


And here’s one of the parodies:

Personally, I’m still more angry about the sexism. But that’s just me.

BTW, the Chicago-based advertiser, Mercy for Animals, looks and sounds just like PETA but is more focussed and apparently unrelated.

This was a cool advertise. But personally I find it hard to understand why you are MORE provoked by the sexism in these pictures than the fact that lots of animals have to suffer all their lives for our exploitation. I think living most of your life confined in a tiny stall and getting injected by painful hormones (which they do in many countries) is worse than getting a little humiliated by a commercial.

Im not even a vegan (I pick organic if I buy animal products myself), but I really wish I could end all treatment of animals that causes them to suffer days, and make sure they are humanely (either abrupt or pain free) killed when theire eventually killed.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign.
