WTF?! “The Lorax” Gives Mazda “The only Certified Truffula Tree Seal of Approval”
Can you believe this? Does this get you riled up? You need to take a gander at this new commercial for Mazda's CX-5, an advertising partner for Universal Pictures Dr. Suess' "The Lorax". It's the latest, most outrageous act of Hollywood greed.
"Certified Truffula Tree Friendly"?! I can't tell you how sick that "endorsement" makes me.
Back when I was 5 years old, "The Lorax" tv special first aired in 1972. It was a powerful environmental message that I believe helped shape who I've become today. Yes, sure I'd rather have more cars be as environmentally friendly as possible, but that is not the point here and to allow Mazda to sponsor THIS film is just plain blasphemy.
Universal Pictures and the films producers have completely made a mockery of Dr. Seuss' work. Seriously.
What do you think?
