Watch the Three Little Pigs Get Tried as Modern Murderers


In this surprisingly dark advertisement for The Guardian‘s open journalism initiative, the story of the Three Little Pigs is reimagined as it might play out in the modern media climate, complete with talking heads giving their opinion, computerized crime scene simulations, and the entire world weighing in via social media. The clever video, which applies ideas like homeowner’s rights, the way supposed medical conditions are addressed by the media, and the idea of the big bank as enemy supreme, is one of the coolest adaptations of this classic children’s story that we’ve been privy to, not to mention one of the most entertaining advertisement spots we’ve ever seen. Click through to watch the video, and let us know what you think of it in the comments!
