Hidden Cameras Expose Canada’s Shame

Published by PETA.

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!
