"Tell Washington to Stop Playing with Food Aid"

The attention to detail here is impressive: the game of wafer cookie jenga; the donkeywoman's steel balls necklace; the elephantman's flag lapel pin; the elephantman shooting water out of his trunk (at least, I hope it was water/his trunk).

It's a nicely shot video. Will it do any good? Probably not.

But Boston agency Hill Holiday now has a nifty political action ad on their reel.

So, there's that.

But, if you've been moved to action, here the Oxfam Website.
