Dick Plays Mcdonald's Clown In Viral Video
Comic Andy Dick has donned his RONALD MCDONALD costume again for a spoof interview.
The anti-fast food activist dressed up as the beloved MCDonald's clown for a recent People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) protest and now he's playing the colourful character in a new viral video skit.
DICk, as MCDonald, sits down with Martin Short's offensive interviewer Jiminy Glick to discuss the fast food chain's questionable slaughter practices. The video is the focus of a unique online PETA campaign.
A spokesman for the animal rights organisation says, "The parody focuses on MCDonald's chicken slaughter practices. PETA, along with members of MCDonald's own animal welfare advisory panel, has urged MCDonald's in the U.S. and Canada to switch to a less cruel slaughter method that some of the company's suppliers in Europe already use.
"MCDonald's North American suppliers use an outdated method that causes birds to suffer serious injuries, including broken wings and broken legs. The birds' throats are cut while they are still conscious, and many of them are scalded to death in defeathering tanks."
