Spoof PSAs on GMO labeling

October 29, 2012

Even if you don’t live in California, where GMO labeling is on the ballot this fall, you’ll probably enjoy the various online satires addressing the issue.

First came an endorsement video from the California Right to Know campaign, featuring such comedians as Danny DeVito and Bill Maher asking, “Why would you want to know what’s in your food?”

Next came three PSA parodies, in which actors claim that having to read food labels is not just stressful — it’s discriminatory, causes migraines, and breaks up families.

Need more? Health-food manufacturer Nutiva has a popular endorsement video. Tune in now; after all, you’ve only got a few more days of anticipation.
