Morrissey’s recent trend of generously allowing songs from his back catalog to be used for good causes continues: Earlier this month, we reported that Moz gave a remix to his song “When Last I Spoke to Carol” to Rosario Dawson’s Latino census campaign, Be Counted: Represent, and now the famously vegan frontman has lent one of his most famous songs to Four Paws, an international animal welfare organization.
As part of their “Rabbits out of the cages!” campaign, Four Paws have created a video, endearing us to the cause of factory-farmed rabbits with cute animated rabbits and Morrissey’s “Everyday Is Like Sunday” soundtrack (watch/listen below).
To explain why factory-farmed rabbits get Morrissey’s attention, Four Paws gives us the following:
Factory farmed caged rabbits have limited space to lie stretched out or sit up on their hind legs. The rabbits are forced to live in cramped and barren conditions. It is not uncommon for bone disorders and foot inflammations to develop, as well as other excruciating conditions. Farmed rabbits may develop neurotic behaviours to relieve the stress caused by their unnatural living conditions.
