PSA raises volume on oceans' problems
USA Today October 9, 2003

School of Rock star Jack Black lends his energetic brand of comedy to a television public service announcement about the plight of the world's oceans. In the Ocean Symphony PSA, now airing, Black serves as the frantic conductor to a discordant orchestra that features Henry Winkler on harp, Tom Arnold on kettle drums and nearly 20 other Hollywood actors on instruments for which they have no skill or training. Produced by the Shifting Baselines Media Campaign, a partnership of more than a dozen ocean conservation groups and the entertainment community, the PSA asks the question, If we don't accept a butchered symphony, why accept the state of the world's oceans, from depleted fish stocks to dying coral reefs?"
