Harrison Ford Waxes on Conservation International

Conservation International has launched a TV commercial featuring Harrison Ford in sync with his latest version of the Indiana Jones film. Ford uses a session with his chest hair wax therapist to explain how deforestation is no longer just an issue of conservation. It’s a matter of climate change.

“When rainforest gets slashed and burned it releases tons of carbon into the air we breathe. It changes our climate. It hurts. Every bit of rainforest that gets ripped out over there really hurts us over here. The tagline, “Lost there, felt here”.
