Anyone else seen this?

I found it genuinely affecting, like the baby crying at the end.

I thought the juxtaposition of soft cuddly toys and a slaughterhouse lorry was a powerful one.

People can change, it seems like he may have had his "aha!" moment.

I think it's powerful imagery to a point. The two images (slaughterhouse lorry and stuffed animals) create a strange dichotomy. I thought the bystanders' reactions were interesting. Some seemed to be laughing and thought it was cute, but it appeared that a few understood the symbolism quite readily. I think even some of the people who appeared to dismiss it at face will continue to think about the imagery.  I wonder how this would work in a large city like mine.

Aristede, wasn’t that done in New York?

I thought it was really powerful. Like, look just how cute they are. We are going to slaughter them, even if they are cute.

I didn't know that, but it seems that is correct! So I wonder how this would look in Chicago? Chicago has long carried a history as a meat hub and meat packing area for generations, but the vegan movement in Chicago is growing. This would be fascinating to see in Chicago.

:hug: Lavender Phase, you are loved.


Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
