The Best Work You May Never See: The World Wildlife Fund's "Beautiful Day"
Welcome to the future neighborhood. To the tune of the famed Mr. Rogers' anthem "It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," we see a succession of people seemingly oblivious to the elements. A couple pushes a baby stroller along the sidewalk in the face of a powerful wind storm. Next, we see campers enjoying the great outdoors with a bonfire next to their tent--while the countryside behind them is ablaze, almost fully engulfed in flames. And finally we see a flooded neighborhood in which we see a man, waist deep in water, washing his car which itself is about two-third submerged.
A supered message reads, "Ignoring global warming won't make it go away "
