We're not normally in the business of alerting you to horrifying videos of mistreated animals — we prefer to limit ourselves to only presenting that sort of footage when it has to do with magazine assistants. So we'll spare you the graphic video we just watched about a kosher slaughterhouse, even if the footage is narrated by the eerily calm Jonathan Safran Foer ("These animals had their throats ripped out while they were still fully conscious").

Instead, we'll go with the more lighthearted behind-the-scenes reel, in which Foer talks about how being a vegetarian is "as easy as easy could be." Wish we could say the same for watching the video, which requires you to look directly at the overly precious JSF for an uncomfortable length of time.

If you still want to see Foer's tour of the bovine bloodshed, you can do so here.
