On the YouTubes: Sock Monkeys, the Reston Zoo, Global Warming Deniers, and You

We love us some "viral marketing," and this fancy video from the Reston-based National Wildlife Federation definitely fits that bill. Much like one of those buddy cop movies, "Dirty the sock puppet" and his earnest human keeper visit the Reston Zoo to talk smack about climate change, spineless lawmakers and a bunch of wonky public policy stuff like "API scorecards."

As one of several Secret Restonian Operatives who forwarded us this fancy video told us, "It’s practically like being featured on 60 Minutes! If 60 Minutes was watched by only 300 people. And Mike Wallace was a sock puppet."

  1. Dear Restonian,

    Like everyone else, I am simply speachless after getting only half way through this delightful fancy video. I am wondering, however, if it would be possible to move the "Doomsday Clock" forward about 7 minutes -- let's just get it over with.
