The Best of the Awful Truth - Voice Box Choir

Posted on: August 31, 2006 | Views: 676 | Comment

Fifty years ago on TV, a little guy in a bellboy costume pitched Philip Morris cigarettes by claiming that nose and throat doctors said these smokes were "definitely less irritating" than other brands. Today, Michael Moore shows up in the lobby of Philip Morris headquarters and conducts a chorus of throat cancer victims singing "Deck The Halls" through their voice boxes.

In this cable show, muckraking director Michael Moore continues his war against all the wrongs commited by greedy businesses, the callous wealthy and opportunistic politicians that exploit the little person in society. To that end, we have his standard protest pranks, investigative reports and satiric games with the audience.
