Great video. It raises our awareness, however it offers no solutions to the current problem of industrialized mega farms where cows never go out to pasture, or pigs to mud, nor chickens to the outdoors.
With a little effort I found a butcher who sells his own meat and provides chicken from local farmers. Another effect on me is that I have really reduced the amount of meat I consume.
The word 'natural' in advertising does not mean it is organic. It only means that it was not grown in a test tube.

Being hung up on whether or not the clip is staged seems a bit counter productive to the message being relayed and I'm not sure if you're trying to push the topic in a different direction on purpose or if it genuinely bothers you that it's a produced mini film. If its the latter, don't sweat the small stuff.

I hope everyone in the thread watches TFV for a change and listens to the end before commenting.
There's a tone-shift at 6:25 and she's not the person you'll think she is until then.
Ironically, the person who uploaded the video appears to have missed the message too lol.

An actor you say? That's all very interesting.
Why an actor?
There is nothing disingenuous about the video nor it's presentation. Not at all. The reaction shots aren't cherry picked and edited well together. Nope no one can claim they see that. She's not a professional actress reading someone else's script and getting paid to promote their agenda.
Quite simply all the people in it are actors, their reactions are fake. Its not a TED talk..its just pretending to be one.

I use to work on the farms, know exactly what it is like for caged and free range chickens. I generally prefer beef as they tend to roam around and have a good quality of life. Try to only get free range eggs when I do.
IMO this is a fake video presentation , it propaganda intentionally made to make you be shocked at farming methods.
These practices are done as presented, and it is possible to have food that is not a product of such practices (I buy from our local agricultors and farmers; that are not big production). So what is being falsely presented here?
