Yoko Ono's been a fierce opponent of hydraulic fracturing in New York for a while, spearheading the Artists Against Fracking collective and partnering with son Sean Lennon to take the anti-fracking message to talk shows like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. But it doesn't look like Governor Cuomo will be making moves to ban hydrofracking anytime soon, so Ono's made a new ad calling him out, and she's using late husband John Lennon to amplify her message.
The 30-second ad, which debuts today, is sponsored by Artists Against Fracking and features Lennon's song "Gimme Some Truth" as a background track. The ad uses images from anti-fracking film Gasland coupled with shots of leaking gas wells to get its message across, and Ono attacks Cuomo for refusing to speak with her to discuss the fracking's environmental impact. "Since you haven't met with me about the dangers of fracking, I will show you now on TV," she says in the spot, and signs off with the pointed line, "P.S. Nice to Meet you, Governor." The ad will run in the city all weekend, but Albany channels will get it through Thursday—check it out below:
