Portugal. The Man Raise Awareness
2014-04-22 by apokolypz | 25 Comments

Portugal. The Man have created a new song to promote the awareness for the Sumatran Tiger, whose species only have 400 remaining tigers in captivity and in the wild. The song is entitled, "The Endangered Song" and will degrade unless the vinyl record is purchased, transferred digitally, and shared throughout social media outlets, a metaphor as to how the tigers are going extinct. The record is only being copied 400 times. A musical consumer has posted a youtube video of the song by purchasing the record and deciding to share the song to the world. Check out the full article and song down below in the link:

its not that. XD Just the whole idea of the campaign, while well intentioned, just seems just fucking weird

I had a job where I was exposed to the Sumatran tiger problem quite a bit and it saddened me. I'm sure this will be a source of endless ridicule by internet-dwellers but this is cool. Good for them. More people should know this issue, and issues like it.

"cool idea i guess but the idea of saving a species thats going extinct is kind of retarded to me. billions of species have come and gone on this planet."

it's preventable though, that's the point. they're going extinct because of the clear-cutting and destruction of the Indonesian rainforest. it's cause by humans and should be (and could easily be) prevented. billions have species have gone extinct by natural means. this is not a case of that and should be talked about and prevented. do you know anything about what's happening in Indonesia or are you basing your lovely opinions on headlines you've skimmed past?

gotta love these message-board dwelling, entitled, frighteningly ignorant teenagers who think they've got it alllll figured out because they check 9gag twice a week

I don't think "do it for the tigers!!!" is a good way of raising awareness, because extinction is the natural state of things. I think they should focus on the root issues like the destruction of the indonesian rainforest. Focusing on the tigers neglects any other problems that might accompany the issue in indonesia.

in a similar vein, fuck pandas.
