Sarah McLachlan Hates Her SPCA PSA As Much As We Do

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Sarah McLachlan revealed she can`t bear to watch her infamous ASPCA commercials.

The singer outlined how she came to making the call to save animals in the heart-wrenching ad to Makers, revealing she had a friend on the board of the charity.


`I was free that week,` she shrugged.  I said `yeah, I love animals, absolutely I`ll do it.`

The In The Arms of An Angel singer described her experience recording the TV spot as brutal, because producers pushed her to be as sad as possible."


Sarah McLachlan has three strikes against her: She`s from Canada, she founded the female-centric Lilith Fair, and she stars in the most hated PSA in the history of Western Civilization. If she woke up in the arms of an angel tonight, I wouldn`t shed any tears.

I have a two cats and a dog, and I`m an animal rights activist who`s written hundreds of articles about animals, but if Sarah McLachlan`s maudlin PSA comes on one more time while I`m on the couch chilling, I will kill myself.

McLachlan`s heart-wrenching ad may have raised over $30 million for the SPCA, but for the love of God it`s time to pull it from the airwaves.

I take comfort in the fact that McLachlan can`t bear to watch her own commercial, hopefully she`ll gouge out her own eyes, before recording another PSA.
