The commercial made of "recycled" film clips

If you're committed to save energy and support recycling, you shall start building your green credentials by recycling film clips to create your own commercial...

In the UK, power supplier EDF Energy is launching today the TV ad above, created by Euro RSCG, that uses "recycled" film clips including the Wombles, Thunderbirds and John F Kennedy. The soundtrack is an adapted version of Sesame Street song "It's Not Easy Being Green".

This advert seems startlingly similar to The Recycled History of Recycling. A short film screened at the Britdoc festival and on Channel 4's 3MW strand 25th July 2007. It was made to promote recycling and was made using 100% recycled footage - something that it clearly points out at the end of the film.
