:: Greenpeace "Kitkat" viral ::

Greenpeace asked us to direct an anonymous script, written for their "Killer", campaign, against Nestlé kitkat. Nestle were singled out by Greenpeace as being yet another multinational confectionery company tearing town the Indianian Rainforest in order to plant endless fields of Palm Oil trees for harvest. The film was pulled form youtube by Nestlé, citing copyright protection reasons... of course this is what we'd hoped for all along and subsequently the film went viral. Current count - 1000000+ views.

An amusing remix of the film appeared in my inbox recently so I though I'd share it here.
