Here’s another lockdown video, in rather sillier vein than the last couple, to cheer up those still confined. It’s another remix of an old song of mine.
In this case it was written as a tongue-in-cheek critique/defence of vegetarianism, when someone close to me took that path back in the eighties.
However, veganism having become, it appears, an integral part of the contemporary environmental movement, ungulates have become the very opposite of the sacred cows of Hinduism, being named as a major cause of climate change. Meat eating is therefore as much a part of the new original sin as not divesting from fossil fuels.
So there’s maybe a political edge to the video that wasn’t in the song originally. The stop-motion stuff assumes that Miss Guinness is a suitable friend for Vegans – if not, it’s certainly OK with ordinary vegetarians.
Incidentally, leaving some animal noises on the soundtrack also caused some minor glitches on the music track, for which I apologise. Also, acting credits to Mr Potato Head, Miss Piggy and the T. rex I made for my granddaughter. Oh yes, and the Little Spuds dance troupe.
