The parody video was scripted and puppeteered by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of NaturalNews.com, who decided to create the video "to emphasize the hilarity of BP's mishandling of the Gulf Coast oil spill."
The parody puppet video, however, isn't trying to make light of the very real suffering and destruction that has taken place in the Gulf Coast following the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. Rather, Adams says the video was created as free speech commentary that makes fun of BP's bizarre decisions surrounding the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The video features what looks like an oil rig worker puppet describing the health and nutritional benefits of "BP Fish Oil Plus" made with "100% natural crude oil." It ends with Bob going off camera, screaming, "If I still had my shrimping job, I wouldn't need to film these stupid commercials!"
"In an age where common sense seems to have been largely lost," Adams explains, "Humor remains the best way to reach out with an important message." And what message is conveyed by Adams' BP Fish Oil Plus video? Well, that BP's handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster is a joke.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.
