About

Paul McCartney made a cameo appearance – as a cartoon character – in the latest Greenpeace ad, “There’s A Monster In My Kitchen“. From Muse by Clio:

Developed by Mother London and Cartoon Saloon, with narration from Narcos actor Warner Moura and a cameo by Sir Paul McCartney, “There’s a Monster in My Kitchen” follows Greenpeace’s 2018 viral hit “Rang-tan: The Story of Dirty Palm Oil.” […]

Sir Paul shows up near the end, as a “warrior” in a protest scene. While McCartney’s inclusion may seem peripheral, the eco-minded Beatle adds some extra star power and potential search-engine appeal.

The world’s forests are truly irreplaceable,” the iconic musician says in a statement. “They’re home to indigenous peoples, amazing wildlife and are vital in our fight against the climate crisis. But … these forests are being cleared at a shocking rate to farm more industrial meat and dairy. This is why reducing our meat is so important. But that alone isn’t enough. To solve this problem, we need supermarkets and fast-food restaurants to clean up their supply chains and make the switch to less destructive, plant-based alternatives. Our forests—and all our futures—depend on it.

The message from Paul McCartney has been relayed in the “Meat Free Monday” newsletter of October 2020.

From Greenpeace:

Demand the protection of our forests: http://greenpeace.org/monster

Jag-wah’s forest home is being burnt down to graze cattle and grow animal feed for meat. If we don’t act, more precious habitats will be ruined, Indigenous Peoples could lose their homes, and we’ll lose the fight against climate change.

Monster, the sequel to Rang-Tan, a new short film from Greenpeace made with four-time Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, BAFTA and Emmy nominated animation studio Cartoon Saloon and independent creative agency Mother, to support our mission to end the role of industrial meat in deforestation and climate change, and to challenge the companies who are responsible.

There’s a monster in my kitchen and I don’t know what to do.
It has wicked glowing eyes and a snake-like tail too.
And claws so sharp and beastly they could tear a child in two.
It ripped our chalkboard off the wall and knocked over our stew.
And it growled at all the bones from our summer barbecue.
Perhaps this beast is here to feast?
But on what?
Or on…who?
There’s a monster in my kitchen and it’s filling me with fear!
Oh, monster in the shadows, please, tell me why you’re here?
There’s a monster in my forest and I don’t know what to do.
It turned my home to ash to instead grow something new.
Feed for chickens, pigs and cows to sell more meat to you.
As our forests disappeared, their evil empire grew.
They think they are unstoppable but we pray this isn’t true.
The real cost of what they’re doing, if only the whole world knew.
There’s a monster in my forest and it’s filling me with fear!
It’s putting us all in danger, to warn you is why I’m here.
Oh Jag-wah in my kitchen, now I do know what to do.
We’ll eat more plants and veggies and we’ll swap meat for bean stew or barbecue tofu!
I’ll assemble every warrior from here to Timbuktu.
Oh, Jag-wah in our kitchen, now we do know what to do.
We’ll stop these deadly monsters, so our planet can renew.
