Wikileaks: We are ‘priceless,’ so please donate (video)

We hope you survived the post-lunch slump without us. Sorry. Here’s why we abandoned you.

But, to make it up to you, we’re here for the when-do-I-get-out-of-here blues. So here’s the pick-u-up!

What Does it Cost to Change the World? from WikiLeaks on Vimeo.

Thanks to Gizmodo for bringing this Wikileaks spoof of the MasterCard “Priceless” ads to our attention. The ad is a call-out for donations in the wake of MasterCard, Visa and PayPal’s refusal to process donations to the organization responsible for leaking classified government documents and video to the world.

The video features none other than WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who is currently under house arrest as he battles an expensive legal case against allegations of rape.

This isn’t the first appeal Assange has made for cash. Earlier in June, he auctioned himself off on eBay. The winner received a seat with Assange at a dinner gathering along with Swedish philosopher Slavoj Zizek.
