Satirist thanks BP for creating eyeless shrimp
BP is still in the Gulf of Mexico, and they want… cookies, according to satirist Andy Cobb and his team of political comedians.
In a spoof of the oil giant’s public service ads that attempt to reassure Gulf residents that BP actually cares about them, Cobb and “The Partisans” skewer the company for inadvertently producing mutated, eyeless shrimp, fish with malformed hearts, crabs that don’t properly mature and other frightening byproducts of the largest accidental oil spill in human history.
“I don’t want anything looking at me when I’m eating it!” Cobb says, next to the title “BP food experience consultant.”
“BP: We’re still slathered all over the Gulf, and now we’d like a fucking cookie or something,” a tagline declares at the end of the ad.
