Living with the worst
At the same time, Dutch environmental organisation Friends of the Earth Netherlands launched a new anti-Shell campaign “Worse than Bad” with the catch-line: “Living with Shell is bad and it is getting worse every day. Tell the world.”
The climax of this pre-shareholder meeting campaign came just a week ago with the launch of the sarcastic iPhone app “Live with it”. Presented by an actor impersonating a top Shell executive, it invites viewers to use the app to report oil spills in exchange for rewards points. It is a parody of an official Shell app for iPads, “Inside Energy”.
“Live with it” has attracted over 20,000 views, mostly in the US, Netherlands, UK and Germany. A spokesman for the organisation says the stunt generated a lot of discussion. A Shell spokesman told RNW that the company has no official reaction to the video or its impact.
