A fascinating video, thanks for sharing it. I was cringing as I watched it, not because of the cruelty to animals or the dishonesty of advertisers which I was already aware of. No, what made me cringe was the presenters light chirpy tone and obvious delight in her own cleverness while remaining completely oblivious of the disgust and hostility coming from the audience. If I was speaking in front of an audience looking at me like that I'd want to hide under the table! Is she a total psychopath? Then the penny dropped and I realised it was a total fake, and the presenter is actually the very accomplished actress Kate Miles. A very clever set up and the way she turned it around and sprung the trap on the audience at the end was a masterpiece.Perry wrote:A good video (Kate Cooper, short - 7 mins) to watch on this sort of thing is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKTORFmMycQ Keep a close eye on the change in the audience demeanour. They did not like what they were told and not one member of the audience offered any applause, at the end.

I think the content was valid, it was certainly in line with what I've read elsewhere. And the audience looked genuine to me. But it was criticism by an outsider, not by an insider. So why fool the audience like that? Well, this is just my opinion, but I think it was to break through the audience's self-protection.Perry wrote:Mmmm - you've got me concerned, now. I had wondered what would motivate a food marketer to blow the whistle. Was the whole thing a set-up? Was the audience in on the charade? How valid was Kate's address text?
