Or Hollywood movies, for that matter. Pretty good description in there of our American way of “food” production, too.

Read about it HERE.

    Move on, nothing to see here.

    Americans are so pwned and happy for it!

  2. MikeN says:

    What I find surprising is that the guy who couldn’t write an ad on Mad Men ends up writing The Butler. Sorry Warner Bros, I meant to say Lee Daniels’ The Butler.

  3. MikeN says:

    So what is the ad even for?

    • Whole-Lee Cow says:

      Typical. So typical of all idiots with big mouths and NO BRAIN!

      “Uh, so what’s the ad even for? Der de der de der…” Says the mouth breathing retard.

      Answer: TRY WATCHING IT! Watch it to the bitter end and MAYBE, just MAYBE you will see what the ad is for.

      JEEZ!

      • noname says:

        Whole-Lee Cow, are you an embodied Kindred Spirit in this wasteland of existence?

  4. Better Living Through Chemistry says:

    Poor scarecrow doesn’t realize his vegetable seeds and soil are probably genetically modified and tainted by the likes of Monsanto.

  5. bobbo, we think words, and flower with movie references says:

    Well………I stopped watching 45 seconds in. Its NOT AN AD but a bit of social criticism delivered by a cartoon. Appropriate only for those without the attention span TO READ!!!!

    That said: what I knew I would really hate was a piece of crap filled with only criticism and no suggested alternative to make the identified situation any better. YOU KNOW: standard FERP BS.

    All THAT said: then I went to the link. Turns out, its a Neo-Hip Ad for Chipolte Fast Food Chain aimed at Millennials. HA, HA>>> actually gives me a warm feeling I didn’t like it.

    All THAT NOW being said: I’ve been quite happy with some of the good movies I’ve seen lately, not to mention the TV. Just finished a black comedy masterpiece called Killer Joe. Black comedy is not for all, but this one caught my funny bone. Just watched Prometheus again. They could have done more with it and it did limp in a few places but its a good story on its own and gains complexity with imagining how it fits with the other Alien movies. I hope there is a sequel to this prequel with that Babe and robot Head going back to the home planet. My chief complaint: Charlize Theron should have played the heroine. Would have made the stomach stapling scene much more enjoyable. The Island on right now as well. Not as good as Prometheus, but still worth the watch. I like how “easy” Scarlett Johansen is. Good type casting.

    ……. but I dither.

    • bobbo, we think words, and flower with movie references says:

      I didn’t dither enough: All of the ABOVE HAVING BEEN said: its manipulative and just too “artsy” to hide an ad underneath a pile of irrelevant (lying) social commentary. I already felt being used or preached to dishonestly at 45 seconds. I hardly think watching the whole thing and finding out it was a commercial ad FOR FAST FOOD would make it all better now.

      ……I blame my hemorrhoids.

      • Whole-Lee Cow says:

        And that was said by one of the few hoomans with hemorrhoids ABOVE the neck!

        Seriously, dude. STFU!

    • Neo-Bobbo says:

      Neo-Hip?

      What is this Neo-Hip you speak of, Bobbo? Teach me, for I come to learn.

      • bobbo, we think words, and flower with movie references says:

        Just watch the ad again. Sincere, Earth Friendly, Tangential. Not “traditionally” hip as in: here is how to sell your soul to make a lot of money.

        Just look.

        Didn’t Yogi say something like: “You can see a lot by looking?”

  6. deowll says:

    The add is produced by and for city people who have been educated far above their ability to deal with reality.

    • bobbo, we think words, and flower with movie references says:

      I’ve heard the internet tubes extend into (some say empty) the country side?

  7. jpfitz says:

    I applaud the commercial. Wife and I just yesterday re-watched Soylent Green. During the week The Daily Show had a bit of fun with Monsanto. All fits together nicely.

    bobbo, too many youngsters don’t read and need the audio visual stimulation for the light bulb to light. A shame… but take a look around, they’re all staring at their devices and following twitter and texting.

    • bobbo, we think words, and flower with movie references says:

      You sound like you are correcting my post or explaining it but only repeating what I said. Tweet much?

      • Whole-Lee Cow says:

        Again! STFU! You (Bobbo) are neither funny nor witty. Your posts just go on and on often about something else entirely OFF TOPIC! So either get back on your meds (since you are a clear supporter of that industry) of jump off the roof!

        • Just Dave says:

          Mods: How much longer are you going to allow these personal attacks to continue?

      • jpfitz says:

        I wasn’t correcting you, just trying to help you see how the young-in’s get their food info.

        Tweeted, me, never will be interested in that narcissist type of electrons. My daughter years ago would leave the PC on just so her AIM message while away would be seen by her friends. I had a thought for an invention and named it IM-AWAY. The reason was electricity was wasted running a machine just for a silly message about oneself. Smart phones hadn’t hit the market yet. Now we have twitter, and Facebook, both of which I’m not signed up for.

        Why you so angry? Yin and Yang. I hope the rental problem goes away for you.

    Mmmmmmmm. Dead animal flesh. I’m hungry now.

    • Tim says:

      If God didn’t want us to eat animals, He wouldn’t have made them so tasty — It’s certain fruit consumed that leads to fuck-all.

  9. Mextli says:

    They have one of those places in Louisiana right near LSU.
    Some of their advertising.

    “It means thatwhenever possible we use meat from animals raised without the use of antibiotics or added hormones. ” “And it means that we source organic and local producewhen practical.

  10. Kevin Roa says:

    Immediately stripped the audio, my new favorite song of the week.

  11. Jon says:

    Anyone who has tasted home grown meat and produce will understand the message in this video. For others who are content with genetically modified, highly processed, boxed food-like lunches… probably not.

    • Whole-Lee Cow says:

      IOW, hunters. Right?

      Or is that opening up that gun argument again?

  12. Captain Obvious says:

    Pretty heavy handed but what do you expect in the US media market? An ad like this is better at getting an emotional response.

    • Whole-Lee Cow says:

      Your right! How else can you explain WASHINGTON?!

      Didn’t we all just give the same ass hole 4 more years (about a year ago) based on more HOPE and a BELIEF in some kind of CHANGE?!

      And not to go off on too much of a tangent but does any that sound anything like a RELIGION?!

      So you can’t exactly blame the marketeers (politicians and preachers) for sticking to a formula that works. Can you?

    • jpfitz says:

      Captain…Thank you, much more an emotional AND societal impact than the apple/chipolte ad, my response was tears. Yea, I have a heart and real men cry too.

      Just saw The Ramen Girl for the first time last night. The sense of community is much stronger in the Far East. Some strange ways of life and hardships.

  13. Kent says:

    Old story. Scarecrow didn’t attract a market for his organic foods, was sued by Crow Enterprises for violating their seed patents, went out of business and was made into a broom.

  14. Uncle Patso says:

    Better Living Through Chemistry said:

    “Poor scarecrow doesn’t realize his vegetable seeds and soil are probably genetically modified and tainted by the likes of Monsanto.”

    And patented as well.

    The Crow Foods logo looks like a backwards version of the old Commodore “Chicken head” logo.

    • Whole-Lee Cow says:

      I noticed that too.

      But you know what’s really weird? It now has me wanting to find that old game, Redneck Rampage!

  15. denacron says:

    Now imagine that we were all that scarecrow (the video asks that too) and we all had to drive out of town to gather our own food stuffs from a farm. Of course a conventional farm takes a LOT of area so the “trips” to the countryside would become very long for some after the nearer produce was consumed. We become limited to what foods grow in the local clime too. Of course we are scarecrows in this imagining so maybe the farm magically produces a huge abundance as well as variety?

    I know my scarecrow patience would be sorely tested by my regular trips out of town to get produce. I guess i would try buying from the enterprising scarecrow selling his own pickings. Trouble is I cant cross the street from all the traffic generated by the many, many pickup trucks endeavoring to do the same, trying to feed a hungry city. Ah well its tough being a scarecrow ya know? 😉

  16. sargasso_c says:

    I love this new documentary format.

  17. BracketCreep says:

    One of the execs for that firm admitted they employ hundreds of illegal aliens and that they regularly discuss these matters with LaRaza (WSJ December 2011 — google it).

    A firm which cannot compete without stoop labor…whose profitability depends on keeping workers impoverished…. has no business making social commentary.

  18. bobbo, we think words, and flower with movie references says:

    To our gentle community of misfits, non-conformists, wanna-bes, fantacists, and those suffering unreleavable boredom… I ask:

    Who is Whole Lee Cow?

    Who is Lucifer?

    Who are these good folks who come on the stage fully engorged, vomit for 1-2-MAX3 threads and then disappear?

    I don’t undertand or relate to the “energy”/interest/involvement that allows/compels them to respond at all, then not at all.

    It makes sense to me for those who post in a humorous way to make a joke as in calling one’s self “Dr Freud in Bobbie Soxs” to an issue of why girls like to dance more than boys. I’ve thought those might come from our Eds having fun. The vitriol and animosity and posting guideline violations these two exhibit make me think these two at least aren’t our Eds??

    Seems to me the childish name calling needs to be EARNED. Who was not impressed by the high water mark reached in this by Pedro and noname recently over who could remember the more perfect vacuum? Yes, the status to insult should be EARNED. The number of relevant comments made in some multiple of the number of childish outbursts. Our icons could be replaced with, or supplemented by a power bar showing all when “Meaningless Dithering” is allowed?

    Truly informational interactive cookie monitoring artificial intelligence integrations.

    Like an earthquake, the answer is not whether…. but when?

    ………..but I dither.

  19. Dallas says:

    It’s a good ad and makes me more inclined to only eat vegetables but sadly, that’s not gonna happen.

    I’d like to see a similar ad about the healthcare care industry (the term healthcare being a misnomer) and of course, the oil industry.

  20. noname says:
