This is the most MENTAL video you will see on e-waste

Wall.E upped the creative quotient of talking about dying technology and e-waste significantly, but in its 1-minute time span, this film is way cooler.


I mean, how on earth do you make dusty CRT monitors, leaky batteries, obsolete mice, VCR tapes stored lovingly by dad and CDs burnt during your ‘Backstreet Boys’ fangirl time sound interesting enough to get you to dispose them off responsibly?

Scripted by the inimitable Vinod Lal Heera Eshwer of McCann and directed by Aloke Shetty (RawShark Films), Enviro+Mental, a 1-min film, adds a truckload of zing to something as ‘dry’ and dusty as e-waste. Wall.E upped the creative quotient of talking about dying technology significantly, but in its 1-minute time span, this film is cooler. Way.
