If sheep could sing reggae, they might sing reggae like this.

Yes, it's a commercial for a New Zealand marketing company, but it's not making any sort of explicit sales pitch and it absolutely kills me every time I watch it, so I figured it's worth the one minute of all your lives that it'll take to watch it.

"Embrace Change" means "accept that your will be forcibly deprived of resources to benefit your Capitalist owners, who will, later on, eat you?"

I guess reggae arose out of the consciousness of oppression, so sheep reggae should do likewise.

On the other hand, sheep are pretty ridiculous in general, so....

somehow i had always imagined sheep placidly cropping grass as the shepherd, humming maybe, gently shears them.

So it doesn't work that way, I guess

Yeah, if you'd never seen a sheep get sheared before, it is pretty amazing how the animals just sort of...allow themselves to be manhandled like that. Yearlings who have never been sheared before will struggle more, but sheep are very docile, as a rule.

It's a problem when the sheep like shearing a little too much.
