That was really stupid. One of the problems I have with the people who put together things like Buy Nothing Day or Drunk Santas (to use two examples) is that they are all childless. They have no sense of how a child thinks, and they subvert their own message as a result. Most of those I know involved in these projects are adolescents, though over 50.

I am not childless. Buy Nothing Day is the day after America's Thanksgiving where I come from and it's a call to avoid joining the hords to shop for a holiday that for some is a spiritual time. It's a time out that I totally appreciate. My kids are, in no way, deprived.

Childless? Adolescent? WTF? I have 3 kids. I am 39 (not over 50). Adolescent could be defined as: A person between the age of puberty and adulthood. or acting by itself without outside power or influence I'd be happy with the latter definition, but the former would insinuate that I am not YET an adult. If being an adult means buying shit for the sake of it, wasting finite resources and having a couldn't-give-a-damn attitude about it all, then yes, I'm happy to remain an 'adolescent'.

Great video. I found another one I think you would all be interested in. It is made by a designer by the name of Jess Confer from Pennsylvania.
