Killers Do Sex Trafficking PSA for UNICEF (Video)

 

Look, we do about our fair share of swipes at the Killers, but we can recognize when the band does good: the above video for Day & Age's "Goodnight, Travel Well" serves as a PSA for UNICEF about sex trafficking. In the dark and powerful clip, we see a woman being forced to work as a sex worker by Gary Oldman's partner in Batman Begins.

 

To learn more about sex trafficking, head to UNICEF. [Stereogum]
