Silk featured a hilarious (and poignant) new commercial for their Almond Milk created by John Brookbank, who was a finalist in last year’s user-submitted contest. And it’s stirring up quite a controversy in the dairy industry, referring to cow’s milk-drinkers as “suckling heifers”. This video is an intelligent counter to the hyper-masculine marketing that the meat and dairy industry uses – especially when it comes to protein and athleticism. I think the slapstick humor is clever, the delivery is spot-on, and the facts delivered are so true! We are not baby cows. Cow’s milk is designed by nature for calves, not adult humans. Plus, dairy has been linked to many diseases, and has pus and blood in it. Gross.
