FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Think Twice Before Adopting a Gorilla
Earth Protect Productions takes a tongue in cheek approach to the serious issue of protecting our planet’s wildlife.
(May 26, 2011) Los Angeles, CA—Earth Protect Productions has launched its latest video ‘A Gorilla Makes A Bad Roommate’ on protecting endangered species. The video shows that going to the extreme of actually taking a gorilla into your home may be just a bit too zealous even for the most motivated of citizens. Earth Protect Productions creates videos for Earth Protect and other organizations interested in producing a message about generating positive action leading to a sustainable future worldwide.
The video is the first of several short public service announcement (PSA) style videos that put a twist on traditional actions often advocated by environmental organizations. “Earth Protect’s purpose centers around seeing an image or film that then translates into a personal, positive action,” says Earth Protect Production’s Creative Director and owner Grant Barbeito. “We also know that humor can engage an audience more effectively than scare tactics so we poked fun a bit by showing what literally adopting a gorilla might look like.”
The video shows the perils and pitfalls of taking a gorilla into your home telling a tongue and cheek story that leads people to learn about more effective actions on www.EarthProtect.com. The gorilla-gone-wrong video can be viewed at: http://vimeo.com/22970288.
