A PETA Asia public service announcement (PSA) that's currently airing on prime time TV in the Philippines is generating quite a bit of buzz (you'll get the pun when you watch the PSA) because it features the late Philippine president Corazon Aquino—along with other world leaders, including Nelson Mandela, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mohandas Gandhi—"speaking" about peace and justice. But there's a twist. Check it out:
The ad was released in observance of International Justice Day and will be airing in the Philippines through the end of July. PETA Asia hopes that it will inspire viewers to give a voice to the voiceless.
What do you think? Does this PSA leave you howling or hooting or ...? Please show it to everyone you know. You can show it in a classroom, in an office, or online (by putting a link to it on your e-mail).
