Buy Nothing Day encourages you to buy nothing today—”Participate by not participating”.
When AdBusters tried to advertise Buy Nothing Day on television, MTV rejected their ad.
MTV, the channel that markets itself to hip youth, has decreed that our Buy Nothing Day public service spot “goes further than we are willing to accept on our channels”. Gangsta rap and sexualized, semi-naked school girls are okay, but apparently not a burping pig talking about consumption
Visit the AdBusters Buy Nothing Day webpage and tell MTV you object.
