In PETA’s new ad, Joel Gibb of Canadian indie band The Hidden Cameras announced that “Canada’s Club Scene Sucks.” and he’s not talking about JELL-O shots.
Today, Joel and the band teamed up with PETA for a public unveiling of the ad in front of Queen’s Park in Toronto.
The Hidden Cameras performed a short acoustic set, during which fans sang along to “Animals Belong Alone.” The chorus goes like this: “We take and take, we know it’s wrong. The earth belongs to animals, and animals belong alone.” The performance must have been a good one, because a group of people at the park to protest the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka even joined in.
Talk about compassion bringing strangers together!
