A Golden Oldie for Black Friday
Thanks to nearly 2000 revolting backers, we have surpassed our original goal! You each have played a vital role in this success. It’s been so successful, in fact, that we are now announcing an even more ambitious goal. Say, another $100,000 in the final week?
That’s not (totally) crazy - after all, Black Friday is tomorrow and we hope you’ll support small businesses (like we are, kind of). And you can easily increase your pledge on Friday because you’ll be at home joining us in boycotting Wal-Mart and other big-box sweatshops.
In honor of this annual psychotic shopping orgy, we thought we should share a fun, consumer-oriented video clip with you - a clip we think you’ll enjoy, but also that will give you an excuse to email and facebook your friends with yet another link to our Kickstarter campaign. We don’t know your friends, but all of our friends love gilded phalluses.
This is a scene from our first movie, The Yes Men, in which a slightly suggestive “employee visualization appendage” (designed to monitor slave-laborers in Third World sweatshops, of course) explodes from a World Trade Organization rep’s trousers at a conference on textile trade in Tampere, Finland.
