Back in June, the US embassy fell foul of a Twitter storm when they offered grants for pro-TTIP projects. It looks like their brethren in Dublin are getting in on the online propaganda war too.
They brought in this all male choir to hype the trade deal in a Youtube video. Back in April The Yale Spizzwinks (oh god, I had to restrain myself from a deliberately infantile misspelling there…), croaked their way through this sing-along sell of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership . They describe themselves as:
America’s first and oldest underclassman a cappella group. Since 1914, we’ve entertained audiences around the world with our unique blend of sweet harmony and tongue-in-cheek humor.
They can add corporate shills to that description too. There’s not enough bleach in the world to clean this out of your ears.
