In my mind celebrities all hang out by glittering turquoise pools and are served drinks by trained monkeys all the while throwing their heads back with non-face wrinkling laughter. If you’ve ever been to ivy bar in Sydney, you’ll know this is mostly true (for the c-z grade variety of celeb anyway). In reality lots of famous people do really wonderful and compassionate work. It’s important to remind ourselves of this sometimes.
In news that has me equal parts excited and sort of grumpy (pffft why is everyone around me so much better at being a good person?!), Radiohead and Jude Law have been working together on a campaign for Greenpeace. *CLAP CLAP CLAP*. That’s the sound of dolphins clapping.
SORRY, back to the collab. It’s a wonderful and heartbreaking little ad for the charity that follows a Polar bear, forced out of their natural habitat by climate change, to the soundtrack of Radiohead’s ‘Everything In Its Right Place’ from the band’s 2000 album ‘Kid A’.
On the video Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke said, “We have to stop the oil giants pushing into the Arctic. An oil spill in the Arctic would devastate this region of breathtaking beauty, while burning that oil will only add to the biggest problem we all face, climate change.”
What do you think? Moving or what?
