Save Ralph - A short film with Taika Waititi

  • Published on Apr 6, 2021
  • Introducing Ralph, the new spokes-bunny of the global campaign to ban animal testing for cosmetics. #SaveRalph​ is a powerful stop-motion animation short film produced by Humane Society International, featuring an all-star multinational cast including Taika Waititi, Ricky Gervais, Zac Efron, Olivia Munn, Pom Klementieff, Rodrigo Santoro, Tricia Helfer and more.
    Save Ralph is a powerful stop-motion animation short film featuring Oscar winner Taika Waititi as the voice of Ralph, who is being interviewed for a documentary as he goes through his daily routine as a “tester” in a lab.
    HSI’s #SaveRalph campaign tackles the cruelty of animal testing in an original and unexpected way-using the story of one bunny to shine a light on the plight of countless rabbits and other animals in laboratories around the world.
    While Ralph is animated, the miseries he endures in the short film are far from made up. As Spencer Susser, the director of Save Ralph, says, “It's so important that Ralph feels real because he represents countless real animals who suffer every day.”
    Susser, known for his film Hesher, is among a slate of powerhouse celebrities and influencers who collaborated with Humane Society International on the making of Save Ralph. In addition to Waititi as Ralph and Gervais as the interviewer, the film has Zac Efron as Bobby, Olivia Munn as Marshmallow, Pom Klementieff as Cinnamon and Tricia Helfer as Cottonballs.
    Producer Jeff Vespa (Voices of Parkland) teamed up with the Arch Model studio of puppet maker supreme Andy Gent (Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budapest Hotel) on the production.

    This was really hard to watch and it is so wrong that any form of animal testing is still tolerated in this day and age. The ability of people to continue putting profits over the welfare of living things is truly heartbreaking and anyone who can go to work every day and inflict painful testing on animals is not worthy of oxygen.
    If people could reply to this and let me know of any brands which are genuinely cruelty free and also advise on what brands to avoid or where I can learn about these things that would be great.

    Plz let this be the one thing to make a change because, eating meat, hunting animals, wearing leather. At least those things have somewhat of a usefull e
    scenario but, cosmetics is just where I really put the line. You can hunt of you respect the procedure (talking about the "die the less painful and the quickest way possible") and from hunting get the meat and leather, is something from the natural kingdom, if you are gonna kill something, at least let it be to give life to something else, clothes for warm or meat for food but, not because you want to be pretty, that's just not worthy of any life

    it'd be nice if as a consumer i could know exactly if all of my shampoo lotions, etc was animal tested...but even labels that say things are safe like the "Dolphin safe" BS on tuna are lying these days.

    This made me cry. I had a rabbit (rabbits) a few years back and this short film makes me so emotional. How beautiful, selfless, kind and loving these creatures are yet we humans show inhumane acts. If only animals can speak 😢😢😢😢 thank you for the awareness. As much as possible I am avoiding and discouraged everyone I know to use product harming/testing animals. This really breaks my heart 💔💔💔💔

    So, it takes an antropomorfic bunny (a being with human traits) for us to start caring. Because it looks human. That's who we are.
    This film is brilliant, but the fact that people seem to care just because the bunny looks like a regular Joe, really hits my nerves.

      Hunting is way better then testing, testing is torture and most hunters will kill a rabbit as painless as possible and that's for FOOD not to look pretty .
      Also yes, we should test more on humans
      1. Humans are able to consent, and guess what? Humans actually do test on humans, especially before a new drug will be released.
      2. Humans and animals have far different biologies, and thus wasted millions of dollars on it with slow results.
      Plz stfu--.

    este mensaje va para este tipo de empresas: "los animales estuvieron antes que nosotros, la tierra, los animales y así como también nosotros. Todos tenemos el derecho de vivir en este mundo, tenemos no el derecho sino la obligación de coexistir en este planeta pues como lo dijo Chaplin en una de sus películas, 'esta tierra es rica y puede albergar a todo el mundo' en si, si te pones a pensar por un momento, fuimos nosotros los que les quitamos su habitad a los animales, y lo seguimos haciendo ya bien Michael Jackson lo plasmo en una de sus famosas canciones Earth Song donde nos da el mensaje de que cada año le hacemos nosotros mismos el daño a la casa donde vivimos, y ella en respuesta que hace por nosotros, nos da cobijo, un poco injusto no? bueno pues el cambio empezara por cada uno de nosotros cuando alcemos la voz y nos unamos encontra de lo que esta mal, como en este caso, el abuso, el exagerado maltrato hacia los animales, yo les invito no solo a estas personas que están detrás de esas marcas de no solo cosméticos sino de toda actividad que involucre al maltrato animal, pero no solo al maltrato animal sino también a la explotación de la naturaleza, respetemos los bosques, respetemos a los animales, nosotros tenemos ese ideal que dice, ama a tu prójimo como a ti mismo, pero en ningún momento lo clasifica como a otro ser humano en especifico, es por eso que ese ideal se aplica para todos y todas, sonaría algo así, ama/respeta a los animales como a ti mismo, ama/respeta a la madre naturaleza como a ti mismo, y por supuesto ama/respeta a tu prójimo como a ti mismo" piénsalo muy bien antes de lanzar una piedra o apoyar el maltrato animal tengamos mas conciencia del dolor que le causamos a ellos, porque quieran o no, ellos también sienten, ellos también lloran, pero sobre todo, y en la mayoría de los casos, ellos no tienen como defenderse y si lo hacen, ellos son los malos por defenderse, dime, ese es el tipo de mundo que quieres para tus hijos, para tus nietos, para ti mismo??? les dejo el link de la canción de Michael Jackson - Will You Be There, cuyo tema se uso en la película "LIBEREN A WILLY", es momento de liberar a los animales explotados.... ojala la puedan oír, gracias.

    Aquellos que gracias a este video hayan descubierto un poquito más de la crueldad que viven los animales, investigad y ser parte del VEGANISMO, un estilo de vida libre de cualquier tipo de crueldad animal, del que poco a poco estamos empezando a ser cada vez más. Si te afecta este video también te debería afectar la situación que se vive en los mataderos. Cada vez más gente empieza a abrir los ojos. Anímate e investiga!
