WikiLeaks Spoofs Classic MasterCard Commercial (VIDEO)

WikiLeaks goes after MasterCard in this spoof of the credit card company's classic advertisement. |

MasterCard's "Priceless" commercials may be one of the most parodied advertisements of all time. And now, the ads are getting the WikiLeaks treatment -- Julian Assange cameo and all.

A short video spoofing the famous marketing campaign was recently posted to Vimeo by WikiLeaks with the following explanation:

"What do MasterCard, Visa, Bank of America, Paypal and Western Union all have in common? They help you pay for what you want? Well, yes... that is unless you want to help WikiLeaks make the world a better place. To see the shocking details, please go to​support.html.

Last year, MasterCard, Visa and PayPal all pulled the plug on processing donations to the the whistle-blower organization.

"There are some people who don't like change," says the commercial. "For everyone else, there's WikiLeaks."

The spoof notes that the group is spending a million dollars fighting law suits and 500 grand on Assange's house arrest, as well as calling out the credit card company for withholding $15 million in support donations (all by WikiLeaks' calculations).

But, of course, "Watching the world change as a result of your work: Priceless."
