Help save the planet

With sea turtle Rod and SodaStream International

posted by Mike Walton

Rod has made an advert starring as an animated singing turtle in a new environmental campaign against plastic bottles.

As a choir of young people looking like they have just stepped out of the famous I'd like to teach the world to sing 70's TV ad and animated marine animals injured by plastic parts sing about the global damage caused by single-use plastic bottles, Rod joins in with the singing.

Rod as the sea turtle is carried to the front of the crowd by Game of Thrones star Thor Bjornsson who plays the Mountain in the show while the Rod sings: “How many bottles would it take, before we face the cost? We can’t keep using all this plastic, or soon we’ll all be lost.”

Rod said: “I have a great love for our oceans and marine life and was happy to lend my voice and support to this campaign.

“If it helps raise awareness and effect simple changes like switching to reusable bottles then I’m honoured to be a part of it.”

The video has been made by SodaStream International and begins with a boardroom of nasty money-men overjoyed at how many plastic bottles they’ve sold.

The human choir then sings Ocean of Change, a song about wanting to live in harmony with the rest of he world when they are stopped by a seagull falling from the sky before it coughs up some plastic.

Rod’s turtle then arrives with one of its flippers wedged in a plastic bottle. He then breaks down the boardroom door and says to the businessmen: “Why are we killing the only planet we have?” before claiming on reusable SodaStream bottle could save up to 2000 plastic bottles a year.
