Adrien Brody's Project With PETA Wins Gold Lion At Cannes

| Filed under: TV NewsAwardzSad SadPETAAdrien BrodyApe

Adrien Brody is an incredible actor, compassionate human and now part of an ad that won a Gold Lion for visual effects at the Cannes Lions awards!

The PETA ad is seriously intense!!

It features an all digital ape, who looks more real than some actual apes, and has a haunting narration by Adrien.

It's part of PETA's 98% Human campaign, which seeks to get ad agencies to take PETA's Great Ape Pledge and promise to never use real, live apes in their projects.

This commercial alone shows just how easy it is to have a seriously powerful performance from a digital animal.

So no real apes are harmed AND you can get the exact performance you need!!

Way to try and change the world!

Check out the video (above) to see the award-winning, powerful ad!

PETA doesn't have a reputation of being subtle to get their point across.

In what's sure to be a semi-controversial ad, PETA got seksi Adrien Brody to lend his soothing voice for a commercial featuring the great ape!

Set in an interrogation room - the suicidal ape fiddles around with a loaded gun while Brody talks about how apes have been mistreated in Hollywood.

It's quite effective and scary!!!

great apes threatened by poachers(1)

The illegal wildlife trade is literally a multibillion-dollar industry!

The same type of trafficking that's almost made tigers extinct is now threatening great apes!

Chimps, orangoutangs, gorillas and bonobos are all being plucked from their natural habitats and bought by private collectors or disreputable zoos.

The numbers are cray cray!

Sometimes, life can get you down at the half way point….

Just ask humans….and apes too?!?!

Scientists have published a study stating that humans tend to be unhappiest in their 40's. This low point comes after a peak in the 20's, and before another peak in the 70's.

In the same study, zoos surveyed over 500 chimps and orangutans on happiness and shockingly, apes experience the same U-shaped happiness range.

He wrote her a letter on PETA's behalf, asking her to join the over 160 senators and representatives who support the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act.

These acts would stop the use of chimps and other great apes in testing in the U.S. and save tax payers millions.

An excerpt from the letter reads:
