Animal Liberation Movement in New South Wales, Australia, has launched a viral campaign designed to expose cruelty to battery hens in Australia.
The spot features a woman preparing to fry an egg in her kitchen. Once she’s heated the oil in the frying pan she takes a miserable looking chicken and breaks it over the pan, releasing an egg. The broken chicken is thrown into the rubbish bin. Click on the image below to play the video in YouTube

The No Caged Eggs website reveals that the TV spot features two chickens. Suzy, the live star, was one of eight hens rescued from a battery farm. The chicken thrown into the bin had died earlier, at the same battery farm. As the site says, “No animals were harmed during the making of the ad. But they bloody well were beforehand”.
Animal Liberation is an animal rights charity founded in 1976 by Christine Townend, based on the philosophies of Professor Peter Singer, as set out in his book Animal Liberation.
The No Caged Eggs TV spot was developed by BWM creatives Adam Hunt, Maureen McCabe, Lisa McLeod and Paul Carter.
The spot went through post production at Frame Set & Match.
