This one needs to be played without the sound on. Trust me. I can’t find the source of the contest in which this seems to be an entry (probably for the best), and I’m not sure about the connection between this PSA and the Companion Animal Placement Program, which flashes across the screen at the end, but it’s a worthy organization (“Rescued is our favorite breed” is their logo). Check it out!
Ok — I know you played the sound track, if only because I told you not to. So what do you think about the total package? I’m on the fence. Aside from the annoyance factor, in some ways the laughing and the music reinforce the message of the video: That people judge, but animals don’t.
Don’t be frustrated if your comments don’t turn up right away. I’m going to be spending all day at the terrific Tucson Festival of Books (click on my name in the author’s list if you’re in town so you can see where my presentation will be).
