Every girl and woman should be able to live safely, feel protected and grow up free of violence, because she DESERVES IT!

Let’s make anti-rape culture, the new culture.

East India Comedy’s video drives a powerful message home. Men condemn acts of violence against women and feel ashamed and deeply apologetic about being men in a country that treats women worse than Saudi Arabia.

Imagine “What Does the Fox Say“, now picture Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and throw in the Cadbury Gorilla and mix it up well. That’s when you get an Adver-dance-ment.

Its part of a rather clever campaign called “Do the Wakudoki,” in which consumers are encouraged to submit clips of themselves dancing to win a trip to Tokyo (or also some Beats headphones). If you think you have the moves, Do the Wakudoki all the way to Tokyo.
