Whether it be fake press releases about donating polar bears to zoos, satirical websites or staged PR fails, Greenpeace has gone to great lengths to try and draw attention to the fact that Shell wants to drill for oil in the Arctic. And it managed to piss Shell off again recently after smuggling in two radio controlled banners—one featuring the words “Arctic Oil? Shell No!” and the other “Save the Arctic.org—to the Belgian grand prix, an event Shell sponsors.
The YouTube clip was removed due to a copyright claim from F1, but it’s still up on the Greenpeace Facebook page.
As it sums up at the end of the video:
Banner material: €50
Four car radio antennas: €88
