Happy Birthday!

Published by PETA.

Today is my birthday, which—for those of you not familiar with birthday rules—means I can do anything I want. And what I want to do today is post this video that my friend Joel and I made a while ago for a song I wrote, which happens to be about birthdays. What does this have to with animals, you ask? Plenty. Apart from being a brilliant reflection on the alienating effects of ingrained cultural phenomena on the postmodern man, it’s also a step-by-step instructional video on how to make a delicious vegan birthday cake! E.g., use apple sauce instead of eggs. The chickens will thank you. Happy Birthday me!

P.S. Today is also Richard Nixon’s birthday, but whatever.
