The Coen Brothers get political

When checking my email today, I discovered a message from the Reality Campaign, an organization determined to expose the the truth about so-called "clean coal." They've aired a few ads on TV, but their latest ad is directed by none other than the brothers Coen! Yes, the guys who brought us THE BIG LEBOWSKI and BURN AFTER READING are now getting political.

The ad, which appears to be the first of a series that the brothers will be making, takes a dark, comedic look at a very serious subject: the negative effect that burning coal is having on our lives and our environment. See the first ad, as well as a behind-the-scenes video, after the jump.
