    Haven't seen that commercial over here yet. But I really love this lady and imagine that I'd cry like a poor stepchild too.

    It seems to come on every 10 minutes. Well, actually, I've seen two different ones.
    They start with her singing, then a black screen comes on that says "Every 10 seconds an animal is abused or beaten" then another screen comes on that says something about how they suffer and are scared. It pulls at your heartstrings, to say the least!

    OH ML that was beautiful and very moving. I think everyone should have a tee shirt like mine..."Be nice to animals or I'll kill you!"

    The subject matter is enough to move me to tears and I hope, action. But the use of her haunting "In the Arms of an Angle" song really clinches it for me. I have to turn the channel when that comes on.

    I got it in Laguna Beach about 20 years ago...have not seen one in ages. If you ever see a tall blonde wearing one in CP walking a dog or roller blading it's me!

    I would love a T-shirt like Nudeyorkers. That's amazing.

    My wife and I race each other to hit the 30-second-skip button whenever that advert comes on.

    I've been a big fan of Sarah's since Fumbling Toward Ecstasy...but that spot is just too much. We're both animal people, and neither of us can handle it.

    Nudie, I'd love one of those shirts...I'd wear the hell out of it!

    I don't think she ever got the proper recognition she deserves.
