Have you seen “Free Me,” the PETA video set to the music of Goldfinger? It’s so moving.
About once a week I hear someone say, “Oh, PETA videos of animal abuse can’t be real. They must be manipulated in some way.”
Don’t we wish. The images on our videos are so horrific, they’re hard to believe, and we wish they were not real. But they are. And here’s the simple fact: If anything on any of our videos was less than 100% legitimate, we’d be sued and would have to take it off the web. That’s the end of the story.
When we say, “This is what happens at Agri-Processors,” you can bet the company tries to stop the video. But they can’t. Because it’s real, and we always prove that it’s real.
So the next time someone questions a video, gently remind them that it’s all too real, and real enough to survive attacks against it. There’s no question. That suffering exists, and we need to stop it.
Unless you're talking about the Sex and the Kitty video. That one's not real. :)
