Monkeying with our emotions

Posted by Tom Megginson | 29-06-2010 17:04 | Category: Animal rights



Copyranter put me on to this disturbing video, which won a “Film Craft” gold lion at last week’s Cannes Advertising Festival:

“Your peace of mind starts with his” is a nice message to mainstream empathy towards lab animals, and the nightmarish animation puts us in the skin of an unfortunate test primate — then rips us right out of it.

I’m not sure it would work as well with a rat or a bunny, but the family resemblance between ourselves and chimps sure drives home the psychological horrors of being bound, prodded and vivisected.
