Traffic stopper: MTV is using the power of its brand in an attempt to end human trafficking. It's powerful. Watch it here.
Using a track from Parisian artist Birkii, the four minute YouTube clip tells the story of three different instances of human trafficking.
In each scenario those involved are simply searching for a better life when they are taken advantage of, and end up as human traffic.
The video is part of a greater campaign called MTV EXIT, which aims to use MTV's wide reach, especially in a younger demographic, to get the message out about human trafficking and how we can stop it.
