Currently, more than 90% of the US’s 300 million egg-laying hens are kept in battery cages, with only 67 to 86 square inches (170 to 220 sq cm) of usable space for each bird. In 2008 the giant wholesale corporation Costco made a promise that it would eventually stop buying eggs from sellers who kept chickens caged and in inhumane conditions. Though, as of fall 2015 the company still had not followed through its promise. Humane Society of the United States has been monitoring the corporation for a while, and decided to do something about this. Agency Rokkan came up with the idea of setting up a scenario in which unsuspecting New Yorkers would visit a crumbling, run down micro apartment in order to rent it. The reactions that would ensue were of course the core of the film and would help understand people the appalling conditions in which the chickens are forced to live in.

UPDATE: By the end of 2015, Costco went cage-free! Not sure of course if our video was part of the reason, but feels good to even just assume it was. Read about Costco change of policy here.

The other side of the fake room.

In order to get the reactions we needed from the potential renters, we hid eight GoPro cameras around the room, so then I could oversee the scene through a live monitor. 

As we’ve found as of late, chaep replica watches brands are making Replica Hublot Swiss Made a special effort to accomplish new records in slimness, as well as in the level of entanglement and multifaceted nature that they pack into those super-thin developments and cases. Here are seven late illustrations of timepieces that (at any rate for the occasion) have set records for slenderness in their individual classifications.

World’s Thinnest Minute Repeater (Current)

Presented at Baselworld 2016, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, now asserts the title of littlest striking cheap fake watches available, a title that had been held already by Jaeger-LeCoultre (see underneath). Striking swiss replica watches convey a few particular development limitations, and require an abnormal state of mastery to accomplish the testing objective of a serious, completely clear replique montre de luxe ring with a uniform, reliable rhythm when the component is initiated. Normally, such a tag heuer replica watches for sale watch replica watches has a tendency to be on the huge side, because of the requirement for adequately liberal inside volume for ideal dissemination of the sound inside of the case, in this manner guaranteeing perfect acoustic quality. Bulgari, be that as it may, set out to accomplish this “immaculate sound” inside of the littlest conceivable space. To this end, the brand built up the in-house BVL Caliber 362, which measures only 3.12 mm thick, and made a case whose general thickness is just 6.85 mm. The case is made of titanium, whose low-thickness properties turned replique montre out to be fabulous for sound dispersion. Another sharp touch was the removed hour-markers on the dial (additionally made of titanium) and cut-out ring around the little seconds subdial, which made openings Replica Tag Heuer that serve to enhance the reverberation inside the case and in this manner enhance the sound impact. More detail on that watch can be found here.
