The Meatrix

This is a compelling use of parody to make a point. It’s not a political issue I’m particularly familiar with, but I think the factory farming issue will become a major issue in upcoming elections. What I do know is primarily related to the impact on communities: pollution, job loss, etc. I like the Matrix-like animation, and it tells its story well.

I’m seeing more and more of these viral-like flash animations for poliltical purposes. Modeled after Comedy Central’s the Daily Show, they aim to educate while prompting a laugh or two. When done well, they’re surprisingly effective.
