Slash has joined forces with Canadian survival expert, environmentalist and filmmaker Les Stroud to raise awareness of environmental degradation. Their joint single, One Giant Farm, features Slash's signature guitar work while also drawing attention to the destruction of marine life.

The video is not for the faint-hearted, as it doesn’t shy away from showing the realities of marine life slaughter. “The video we produced for ‘One Giant Farm’ is hard to watch,” Stroud remarks. “It brought my editor to tears, and I have friends who still can’t watch it.” However, Slash was adamant about only getting involved if the video was publicly published.
