Animal abuse in Super Bowl ad
NBC plans to air a Super Bowl commercial that uses greyhound racing to show how fast Skechers' new sneakers are. But an undercover investigation has revealed that the Arizona track that serves as a backdrop for the commercial is notorious for extreme animal cruelty.

And with over 100 million viewers expected for Super Bowl XLVI, though, animal advocates fear the ad will effectively whitewash an industry so dependent on animal cruelty that it's outlawed in 38 states.

GREY2K USA recently published findings of an undercover investigation that exposed the Tuscon Greyhound Park’s shocking cruelty. Now, the group has started a petition on Change.org asking NBC not to air Skechers' commercial during the biggest American sporting event of the year. Will you sign GREY2K USA's petition telling NBC to take a stand against animal cruelty by refusing to air Skechers' new commercial, shot at the Tuscon Greyhound Park, during the Super Bowl?

When it learned Skechers was filming an ad at the Tuscon Greyhound Park, GREY2K USA wanted to draw attention to that specific track's terrible record of mistreating greyhounds. Through its undercover investigation, the group had already found that the track was:

* muzzling greyhounds while they're warehoused in dark, cramped kennels;
* providing inadequate exercise out of doors;
* feeding dogs raw meat from diseased animals and animals dead before slaughter;
* running dogs in dangerous conditions; and
* ignoring a disturbing frequency (every 3-4 days) of serious injuries like fractured skulls, broken bones, dislocations and muscle tears.

Then, when GREY2K USA found out the ad was planned to air during the Super Bowl and had some of the biggest names in sports behind it, it became clear this issue was much bigger than just one track in Tuscon. Thousands of dogs each year suffer broken legs, cardiac arrest, spinal cord paralysis and broken necks in the dog racing industry. When the dogs are no longer profitable, they're killed.

Super Bowl ads are the most sought after slots on the air all year, NBC wouldn’t have any trouble replacing Skechers' ad with another. All that's needed is enough of a public outcry to get the broadcaster to drop Skechers’ ad promoting dog cruelty.

Please sign GREY2K USA's petition telling NBC not to air the dog-abuse-promoting Super Bowl ad from Skechers next month.

Thanks for being a change-maker,

- Stephanie and the Change.org team

Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: Animal abuse in Super Bowl ad
I'm not down with cruelty to animals, but how in the fuck does filming a commercial in that location equate to Promoting animal cruelty?

That's like saying if they filmed the commercial in Red Square they're promoting communism, or if there was a church in the shot they are promoting Christianity. Yeah, there's a connection due to the location, but to say it actively promotes it is really stretching it.
Wouldn't it be great to heal the world, with only a song?

because via the ad, they are PROMOTING and CONDONING the treatment of these animals. People just won't SEE the ugly side of the business because their focus will be distracted from the truth.

Wow, way to NOT answer the question! This is a brief summary of the thread so far:

OP : Skechers filming at so and so track is promoting animal cruelty!

Me: how exactly is it promoting animal cruelty?

OP: Because filming the ad there they are promoting animal cruelty.


-------------------------------------

And of COURSE people are going to be distracted from the "truth" , they'll probably be mainly distracted by the real focus of the commercial, which is Skechers and it's products.

If you really follow that line of thinking you better take a good hard look at all the products and services you utilize in your life, because there's a very good chance that some nasty things have gone on behinfd the scenes to deliver those products and/or services to you, and you wouldn't want to be promoting and condoning that now, would you?

ok....how's about getting to make a lot of money as a means of continuing their cruelty. When you watch the ad, you are promoting the cruelty.

sorry if you don't get it.......
