He is a whack a doodle, and funny. Does he mean to be funny or he is serious? Hard to tell these days. There are many "end of the world" crazies out there. While the consumers are consuming each other, crazy Rev. Billy might want to be careful. He might just give himself a stroke.

I think "Rev." Billy Talen, militant performance artists extraordinaire, by creating this persona, the Reverend, and formatting his organization into the "Church of Stop Shopping" has found a way of getting the attention of people who might not ordinarily listen to environmentalists and other progressives when we insist that mindless consumerism is destroying this planet. Besides, it's always fun to see the footage of their direct actions.
