The Florence-based duo of singer-songwriter Phoenix Imago and artist/animator Jennie Rutz are bringing pigs to life as rock stars in an animated music video. The video features Phoenix’s song, ‘Who Ya Callin Pigs?’, a Jerry Lee Lewis-esque piano rock’n’roll track sung by a pig in protest at the treatment of his brothers and sisters at the hands of humans.
“We want to use humor to make people stop and think about the consequences of their actions. Even if they don’t become vegetarians, anyone who becomes aware of the conditions pigs are kept in, would be happier buying organic meat. We need more fun projects like this to get peoples’ attention.” – Phoenix.
They aim to use a combination of affliliate marketing, sponsorship and merchandise to fund the project. Currently, there are some initial drawings and a freely downloadable piano/vocal demo of the song on the website http://whoyacallinpigs.org/ If people join the mailing list they will get a free mp3 download of the finished song.
