Someday

Morrissey has never been shy about any of his views, but he’s been an especially vocal advocate of animal rights over the past 30 years. The latest manifestation of this crusade is a PETA-produced animated video to be aired during Morrissey’s upcoming tour dates. As explained on YouTube, “The video takes viewers on a harrowing journey as they witness — through the eyes of one terrified bird — the typical experience of chickens raised for meat. Will our young chick survive what 8 billion chickens each year cannot?” In a clever bit of repurposing, the action comes soundtracked by Your Arsenal jam “I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday.” Watch below.

  1. Fuck ‘em both, to be completely honest.

  2. This video works, because it doubles as the secret origin of Morrissey.

  3. It’s better than the alternative, which was — when I saw him about a year ago — using real slaughterhouse film of animals getting all chopped up, intestines pouring out, beaks thrown into the grinder, etc.

  4. Run the fuck away, little chick!
