If you watch my channel, you are certainly familiar with Gary Yourofsky, and if you’re human and alive, you should be aware of Brian May, legendary guitarist and songwriter with the infamous rock group Queen. yes, the Queen. Well these two giants of their respective fields have come together to produce an ad to raise awareness about the plight of animals by promoting Gary’s famous speech. It’s about time this got on television.
Welcome to another anouncemennugget! (That’s such an awkward word.) anyway, I wanted to share this exciting news with you and if you are following Gary on his brand-spanking-new social media accounts, you’re already in on it! Check out yesterday’s video post for all the details on that earth-shattering revelation.
So, Brian May is famous for being the lead guitarist of Queen, but some lesser-known facts about him are that he is has a doctorate in astrophysics (yeah!) and is a huge supporter of Gary Yourofsky and the cause for effective vegan education. And he’s putting his actions where his mouth is by creating a TV ad about Gary’s speech. The ad will run 29 times on WDIV, NBC-Detroit from February 9 to February 20, but you don’t have to be in Detroit to see it. I have it in the video at the top of this post. Here's what the video says:
Brian: This is Brian May from a little group called Queen it’s taken me a long time to get to the point where I am a proper vegetarian.
Gary: When you’re not the victim, it becomes pretty easy to rationalize and excuse cruelty. My goal is simple. All I want to do is reconnect people with animals.
Brian: He’s called Gary Yourofsky. Take a few moments right now to look at one of his lectures. Listen to what he says. It may change your life forever.
Be sure to watch the video above for the full effect! I’m including a link to Brian May’s YouTube channel. Brian talks at the end of this post so be sure to go subscribe. Check out yesterday’s video post about Gary’s new social media accounts for all of his links.
If you’re jazzed about these two epic individuals coming together for the animals, share this post around to spread the message. And let me know about it in the comments!
and Dr. May, if you are reading this, please accept my sincerest apologies for butchering your infamous song at the end of the video!
