Okay, in all honesty, I had never heard of Madison Park before. But then, I’ve prrrrrrrretty much only ever heard of Rufus Wainright and Patti LuPone, so I’m not really your best judge for what’s hot in the music scene. Still, when someone sent me a link to electronica-inspired Madison Park’s video, “Opus One,” I immediately took notice.
I took notice of two things, specifically: First of all, the video is all about factory farming… complete with images of male chicks being suffocated (this is a common practice of the egg industry, since there’s no use for boy chicks), and veal calves struggling to stand (veal calves, of course, are a byproduct of the dairy industry).
Secondly, I noticed that the video has gotten 156,201 hits on youtube, making me one happy activist.
Vegan kudos to Madison Park for using their talent and fame to speak up for animals. That’s exactly how you do it.
Here’s that video:
