Parody Video Released On Anniversary Of BP Oil Spill
Still pissed about the BP Gulf oil spill? Yeah, we are too! It has officially been over a year, yet an unusual amount of dead marine life has been washing onshore, and in spite of reports that the food and water is now safe for consumption, the locals remain doubtful.
Which is why this parody video called, “I Know What You Spilled Last Summer” was a welcome one! The concept comes from the slasher film, “I know What You Did Last Summer” and the comparison to BP oil execs trying to cover their tracks is shockingly similar to the plot of the horror film.
The video was created as part of the launch for Counterspill,which is a website dedicated to highlighting the impact of energy disasters.
“Counterspill was created so we can actually make changes in the wake of disaster,” said Counterspill co-founder and filmmaker Chris Paine. “We want to constructively counter industry and governmental spin on these disasters so we don’t keep returning to business as usual. These should be opportunities to accelerate our renewable energy future.”
Perhaps the best part is that the video is actually funny, and comedy tends to be a medium that everyone can relate to. Also, it has a cameo from eco-warrior Ed Begley Jr.!
