(I believe this is going to be Nigel's new favorite karaoke song)
The video is, in the words of my five-year-old son, "The coolest thing ever!" Mostly because of this:
It's a perfect example of using talent and creativity to make a visually stunning video on a total shoestring budget. Meanwhile, that abomination known as Michael Bay spends $200 million to make stuff like this. Oh the humanity.
Anyway, on to what I want to bitch about:
posted this yesterday and I really dislike the mentality behind it.
People aren't fed by the Food Industry. People feed themselves. And the Health industry pays plenty of attention to food, they just pay attention to the wrong kind of food.
People guzzle down Canola oil (rapeseed) because it is supposedly heart-healthy. They eat crap-in-a-box because it has "heart-healthy" whole grains. Why? Because governments have adopted the low-fat pro-grains dogma despite all evidence to the contrary. Because grant-whore government sponsored researchers like the AHA endorse Canola oil and promote the Food Pyramid.
The problem of Big Pharma and Big Farma is a problem of Big Government. And it's a problem of individual choice. Frankly, if you are stupid or lazy enough to get your health advice from Dr Oz or a vegan propagandist like T. Colon Campbell, then you deserve what you get. Don't start bitching about the food industry, because they just give folks what they want. I've yet to see anyone buying Twinkies because they had a gun pointing to their head.
Of course, we all know that McDonald's actually does force people to eat there.
