Amnesty International entertains with new online TV platform

Amnesty International entertains with new online TV platformAmnesty International’s new online TV platform sounds like it should be worthy and dull, but it turns out it’s hilarious thanks to a team which includes the creators of Modern Toss, co-creator of ‘The Inbetweeners’ and producer of ‘News Wipe’. Skits include a man doorstepping embassies of nations run by questionable regimes to ask them to sign a birthday card for Amnesty’s 50th (below), Cassette Boy-esque video mash-ups of Obama and spoof instructional videos for torture. The comedy is interspersed with more traditional Amnesty fare and, amidst the laughter, the weightiness is even more pronounced.
