Indiana Jones and the (real) Last Crusade

Caring for the planet may be our last crusade. At the end of the day if Mother Earth goes haywire on us, there may be not "us" anymore.

Harrison Ford, the man that was in so many different movie crusades, battling against Darth Vader, the Nazis and so, so, many "evil ones" seems to understand this problem pretty well. So he put himself -this time for real- in harm's way to help raise awareness of the effect of deforestation on global warming.

The torment this time? Waxing! Take a look:

According to an article in The Guardian, Peter Seligmann, chief executive of Washington-based Conservation International, said Ford was game to do the 30-second campaign ad. "I didn't have to talk him into anything," Seligmann said yesterday as he launched the campaign. "I was there when he filmed it. It really hurt. There's nothing about the expression on his face that was fake."

The actor, whose latest film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, had its world premiere at Cannes on Sunday, is also director of Conservation International.

Some may think is not such a torture. Those are the ones that have never tried it. Waxing can be excruciating experience...(if you don't believe me, ask this girl!)

Thanks Mau for sending me the video!
