PETA Wins Big at Cannes Film Festival?

Published by PETA.

OK, not quite. Actually, the International Cannes Film Festival is already over, for those of you not on the up and up with film awards. What I’m talking about here is the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, where two—yes, count ’em, two—of PETA’s PSAs have made the short list for public service messages. Ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce “Buy One, Get One Killed” and “Sex Talk”!

Buy One, Get One Killed

Sex Talk

All right, so the videos have been around for a few months now, but they’re definitely worth watching for a second, third, or 37th time, because, well, they’re just that amazing.

This is a huge honor, and we’re pleased and proud that both videos are receiving the recognition that they deserve and that spay/neuter advocacy is receiving the spotlight that it so desperately needs.

The animal overpopulation crisis is a growing problem and will only continue to grow if guardians don’t do the responsible thing and practice animal birth control for their companion’s health and happiness.

Now, about conquering that other film festival. … Hey, there’s always next year ….
