Dirty for Swain - The Filthy Campaign for Clean Oceans (Video)
Image credit: Dirty for SwainDirty Campaigners Support 1000 Mile Swim through Toxic, Shark-Infested WatersOiled-up women? Men bathing in sewage? This is a campaign that was just born for the internet. There's no doubt about it - Christopher Swain is a lunatic. He's swimming over 1000 miles through waters filled with toxic pollutants, heavy metals, sewage and quite possibly sharks in the name of clean water for all. Along the way he's stopping in at schools to spread the word about our oceans plight. Luckily, we can all do our bit to help him - and all we have to do is get a little dirty.
Click below the fold for some filthy video footage of just how dirty some folks will get in the name of clean water. The Dirty for Swain Campaign looks set to spread virally through Twitter, Facebook and the like as folks pledge to, well, get dirty in support of Christopher's swim. Early pledges include frying bacon naked, letting dirty dishes ferment, and spinning a donut through a centrifuge. What would you do for Christopher Swain?
Underneath all the fun there's a deadly serious message to the campaign, which is being supported by Changents.com and Timberland Earthkeepers - namely protecting our oceans at all costs. Like Oily Cassandra's sexy peak oil message before it, I'm pretty sure Christopher's campaign can only benefit from a good dose of filth.
