Imagine a pig playing a video game. Pretty cute, right? And totally possible. Studies have shown that pigs are in fact smart enough to play a joystick video game. This adorable little factoid is highlighted in Farm Sanctuary’s newest PSA, encouraging viewers to consider animals as friends instead of food.

A Penn State study back in the 90’s found that pigs had sharper video game skills than chimps and 3-year-old children.

“The research found that pigs could play video games with more focus and success than chimps,” said Bruce Friedrich, Farm Sanctuary’s senior policy director. “The dogs couldn’t figure it out at all.”

The new ad will be shown on Farm Sanctuary’s website and all related social media. Check it out and share it on your own social media channels, reminding people that animals are someone, not something.
