    Well…. You see – some chickens are dangerous. This one appears to be responsible for global warming, flooding, Israeli and Palistinian conflict, and terrorism.

    The gist of the advert seems to be a comment on the interconnectedness of world events, and the dangerous of badly planned menu choices. I found the cheery music a strange contrast to the imagery. I picked up the vocab words, but can’t get a cohesive narrative. I suspect it was intended to suggest that this station can show you the connection but i’m not that sure.

    Food needs transporting. Transport causes the ice-caps to melt. The rising sea levels cause refugees. The refugees become angry. Terrorism then leads to war. Only a chicken survives.

    chicken needs chicken feed which is trransported on ships from brazil, which emit lots of carbon dioxide which causes ice to melt, which causes the ocenas to rise – people are left homeless, go to refugee camps, which causes conflict and those involved in the conflict turn to terrorism which leads to further war until all men are dead.

    then the restaurant doesn’t have chicken anyway. not sure.
