Zombies, Colin Farrell Uncover a ‘Trillion Dollar Scandal’

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

WASHINGTON – Ahead of the G20 summit in Brisbane, Australia, The ONE Campaign released a new video today highlighting the fact that at least a trillion dollars is siphoned out of developing and emerging countries through corrupt activity every year. We’re talking about shady natural resource deals, phantom firms, money laundering, and illegal tax evasion.

This video, produced by British creative agency, Don’t Panic, features a voiceover by Colin Farrell and uses zombies to make the point that anyone—even a dead person—can engage in the shady business practices that are short-changing developing nations by a trillion dollars every year. That’s a trillion dollars that could be used on hospitals, schools, and infrastructure for millions of people trapped in extreme poverty.
