Sea Shepherd: Ultimate Death Scene

Embed Video
Top 6: August 5th 2015
Pursued until the point of exhaustion, shot with an explosive harpoon causing massive internal injuries, dragged violently to a ship then shot some more before taking up to an hour to die. That is the reality of whaling today, highlighted in all its cruelty by Australian character actor David Field in a shocking new video.
Field, who has starred in film roles including Chopper, Two Hands, The Inbetweeners 2 and most recently the Channel Seven mini-series Catching Milat, graphically recreates how whales are hunted then slaughtered by whalers in a new campaign for not for profit marine conservation organisation Sea Shepherd and created by independent Sydney advertising agency The Works.

In the 'Ultimate Death Scene', Field takes on the role of a whale which is hunted and shot with an explosive harpoon before being dragged aboard a whaling ship and finally suffering a long and agonising death.

The film aims to increase awareness of whaling and encourage donations to Sea Shepherd so they can continue to campaign and take direct action to help bring it to an end.

More than 25,000 whales have been killed under the guise of scientific research and commercial purposes by Iceland, Norway and Japan since the International Whaling Commission (IWC) enacted a moratorium on all commercial whaling.The IWC does not have the capacity to enforce the moratorium. Sea Shepherd, guided by the United Nations World Charter for Nature, is the only organisation whose mission is to enforce these international conservation regulations on the high seas.
