New York, New York – A new video online called Dear BP Global, What If They Were Us?, we see a woman (played by Yukiko Miyawaki) on her knees and throwing up oil at a beach. Later, we see this woman reaching out to get help from assumingly a BP executive (played by Steven Ramirez), but this executive doesn’t want to have anything to do with her.
The video was created by photographer/author Gene Geter and friend Steven Ramirez. AP Photographer Charles Riedel’s horrific seabirds photos inspired them.
