The Meatrix II: Revolting is now online! Following in the critically acclaimed hoof prints of 2003's The Meatrix, the popular spoof of the feature-length film The Matrix, The Meatrix II features a trench coat-clad cow named Moopheus, a pig named Leo (who just might be "the One"), and a saucy chicken named Chickity. The animated short reveals the cruelty behind the commercial dairy industry, including the use of growth hormones and the practice of cutting the tails off of cows.
Humorous and educational, the goal of The Meatrix series is to motivate consumers to purchase food produced in sustainable ways that protect animals, as well as the environment, communities and workers. Like its predecessor, the sequel is coupled with online resources and general literature that informed diners can leave at restaurants. The Meatrix team has also recently launched a campaign asking Starbucks to stop using milk with recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH).
