Radiohead and Jude Law Team Up for ‘Save the Arctic’ Video
In order to help raise awareness for anti-global warming initiatives — and alert concerned citizens about impending Arctic oil drilling — Radiohead and Jude Law have teamed up with Greenpeace to create a short video titled ‘A Homeless Polar Bear in London.’
According to a press release issued by Greenpeace to promote the film, “Shell’s Arctic fleet will be arriving any day now to begin exploratory drilling off the coast of Alaska this summer.” An alarmed Jude Law added, “As the Arctic sea ice melts, polar bears are being forced to go far beyond their normal habitat to find food and look after their young” — thus explaining the clip’s fanciful (for now) depiction of a polar bear prowling around London.
“We have to stop the oil giants pushing into the Arctic,” argued Radiohead singer Thom Yorke in the press release. “An oil spill in the Arctic would devastate this region of breathtaking beauty, while burning that oil will only add to the biggest problem we all face, climate change. That’s why I’m backing this campaign.”
Added Law, “This film is a powerful expression of how our fates are intertwined, because climate change is affecting all of us no matter where we live.”
