Biscuit launches its latest film for PETA.  

British farming likes you to imagine green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years gone by but we draw attention to the fact this this isn’t the case. Today, most British meat comes from animals who are factory farmed. In fact, the vast majority of animals raised for the table and fast food take-away live absolutely rotten lives.

Biscuit partnered with Grey London and PETA to create Pig Farm, a dark but humorous look at the realities of where our pork comes from. Directed by Jeff Low, the animated film draws inspiration from Cuphead and Ren & Stimpy. By weaving together elements of fantasy and reality, we hope to spark conversations and inspire people to change their eating habits.

The cartoon film follows the journey of the pig farmer as he explains to his daughters just what his day at the factory entails. Initially it looks like an idyllic existence for the pigs, but as the film progresses the truth behind the industry’s practices begin to be uncovered. The film is set to an upbeat song (also written by Jeff Low) that drives memorability and further immerses the audience in what they’re seeing.

To support the campaign and drive further awareness we have designed and created merchandise available via the PETA website. Pig’s live for 6 months before they’re slaughtered, not having even one year of life is a stat to dramatise. To do that we’ve created a calendar measured in pig years…so you get a calendar that stops after 6 months. Each month displays the suffering pigs endure via our cartoon visuals. We have also created a number of limited edition plates, the PETA piggy crockery set! Turning boring plates into a wonderfully gory reminder of the suffering behind your bacon butty!
