In this commercial, preserved for all time by a world in love with its trash, cows break their figurative chains and flee their confinement. What would cause such normally docile creatures to behave so, so… rambunctiously? Only the least reasonable thing ever, that's all!
They're not escaping—they're on strike!
Their principal grievance? Children have refused to drink the milk intended for the cows' vanished babies!
Experience the stirring (and insane) spectacle yourself:
The cows are up in arms!As soon as the cows see that the children are back on board, they happily return to their desperate lives of servitude.
They've left their fields and barns!
They're marching from the farms because...
Kids don't drink enough milk!
makes milk taste like a Hershey® bar.
The kids are happy,
They're drinking their milk—
The cows are going back home!
No free spirits, these cows. For them, it's all toeing the line, doing what you're told, and Taking it from The Man! Well, you know. It's was the 60s.
