The Killers have joined forces with MTV to stamp out human trafficking.
Produced in partnership with UNICEF, USAID and MTV Exit – MTV’s campaign to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking and exploitation - the band have made a powerful video for their track Goodnight, Travel Well, highlighting the dangers of trafficking and the sexual exploitation of young women.
"We are deeply shocked and appalled that women and children are forced into such exploitative situations,” said The Killers, announcing the collaboration. “We hope that through MTV's efforts and this powerful video that millions of people across the world learn about this tragic form of modern-day slavery".
MTV Exit’s partnership with The Killers follows in the footsteps of last year’s collaboration with Radiohead, in which the band co-produced an award-winning film to accompany their single All I Need.
More than 1.2 million children are being trafficked each year and nearly 80 percent of all trafficking is for sexual exploitation.
