    Ylvispiracy

    From the anti-speciesist message of 'The Fox' and then to 'Intolerant', a film about swapping dairy for nuts and the plights animal product-driven allergies. Ylvis are clearly a part of the vegan underground mission to takeover the world! Why didn't we make the connection? WHAT THE *FOX*...
