Haha I like The Onion.<br><br><br><br>
I think this would actually make people think twice about buying cosmetics, at least from Cover Girl.

I think it's "funny" in that it demonstrates how absolutely ludicrous it is to be testing mascara on rabbits for such insignificant reasons. The rabbit mouthing off their marketing campaign is a nice touch.<br><br><br><br>
Nobody's laughing at the rabbit, they're laughing at how shallow and stupid Covergirl is.

This is a great ad, it brings home the issue of cosmetic testing with some humour.<br><br><br><br>
Only thing is I think at the end they should have ended a more graphic picture of testing.

It sounds so ludicrous, but then you realize it actually happens. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">
