Watch the holiday video deemed too disturbing for TV.
Directed by famed music video and commercial director Dave Meyers, our new Thanksgiving ad features a straight-talking little girl dressed as a turkey who goes off-script during her school play. Surprisingly, it was banned by ABC even though it doesn't contain any sex, violence, or profanity, unlike popular ABC shows such as American Crime and Scandal that regularly depict sex and violence.
More than 45 million turkeys are killed each year at Thanksgiving alone, and more than 22 million die at Christmas.
Before ending up as holiday centerpieces, these gentle, intelligent birds spend five to six months on factory farms, where thousands of them are packed into dark sheds with no more than 3.5 square feet of space per bird. Turkeys are genetically bred to grow as fast as possible, and they often become crippled under their own weight.
