A key to promoting any worthy cause is a dash of showmanship, but this protest video documenting the plight of dozens of chimpanzees used in blood research is like eating a bowlful of activist MSG.

You've got a skeptical, if loquacious, NYPD officer ("Oh the New York Times is a credible source?"), angry Upper East Side residents walking their mini purebreds stone-faced through chimp-masked picket lines, and our videographer, who clearly knows his way around his video editing software.

At issue are the colony of chimpanzees that The New York Blood Center allegedly abandoned after discontinuing their research earlier this year.

Seeing is believing. "MA'AM YOU'RE COMPLICIT!"
