A sci-fi horror short by Ruari Robinson about Dr Zoidberg-looking monsters living among us, inspired by the current state of the modern world. To wit:
After being phased out of his job, a dangerously unstable man’s life spirals out of control when the prescription pills he takes start to have a side effect: they allow him to see the parasitic beings that have long been puppeteering our world from the shadows.
See? You were right all along.
Originally released in 2016 to publicise the Shin Godzilla movie (now only available on the secondary market for a 500%+ markup), these Kaiju figurines of monsters with their heads hung solemnly at a press conference are a respectful nod to an important part of Japanese culture: the apology – through which balance and harmony in society are maintained.
That’s Hedorah on the right in the last pic.

Luke Brennan writes:
Sad to see this sort of creative appropriation by large corporations. It seems to me that the work done by Chris judge on his wonderful “Lonely Beast” books has been lifted by the ad people.
It’s a sad story, as the small guy never has the meansto challenge the corporation, IP law and design rights are hard to enforce, so the big guy always wins.
