This video is about the AMOCO CADIZ OIL SPILL DISASTER – HUGE PROFITS BEFORE SAFETY.
Amoco was bought by BP in the 1990s. However, rebranding as Amoco might not really stop reminding people of oil spills.
According to Wikipedia:
Amoco Cadiz was a very large crude carrier (VLCC), owned by Amoco, that split in two after running aground on Portsall Rocks, 5 km (3.1 mi) from the coast of Brittany, France, on 16 March 1978, resulting in the largest oil spill of its kind in history to that date.
