An important contribute to the vegan society
4 April 2017 | by yuvyaishSee all my reviews

I've never seen a use of humor in this way to promote veganism, but i sure like it. This film is absurd, but also hilarious! Too bad it's only on BBC iplayer on the UK cause i would spread it in theaters. Simon Amstell is one hell of a guy. So show it to your friends. C'mon, I dare you.
