Jim Carrey, who we actually take kinda seriously, recently appeared in a PSA for a cause we take very seriously: supporting the world’s only imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Aung San Suu Kyi.
The spot also calls attention to Burma’s military regime, which recruits more child soldiers than any other country in the world, has destroyed 3,000 villages in eastern Burma, and forced 1.5 million refugees to flee. The star urges us towards two great organizations, The Human Rights Action Center and U.S. Campaign for Burma. All very good things.
So why am I busy fighting awkward tingles and looking at Carrey’s hair?
Four words of advice: MORE TEXT. LESS FACE.
Sometimes well intended things go awry. Let’s just try harder next time!
They’ve got the right idea:
The Human Rights Action Center
U.S. Campaign for Burma
