What Sucks…The Guy In The Charger Who Throws Garbage At The Indian
Look, I understand this Native American man in this famous public service spot from the 70’s loves the environment.
He’s looking around- not crazy about our power plants and out highways. I see his point but we kinda need that stuff. Not everyone wants to have to take a canoe to get where they need to get.
Let’s face it- what’s is he doing in a canoe anyway? Where is he going by canoe? And yes, he sees some garbage in the stream he’s canoeing in, but you know, it’s nothing SO bad. A couple of newspaper pages and a soda can. I’m not saying I’m happy that stuff is there but it could totally be worse. And yes when he pulls his boat ashore he’s hit with some more trash- boxes, more soda cans- what looks like a plastic tarp. Not cool, but you know- that shit could totally be cleaned up.
I understand he may a “deep, abiding respect for the natural beauty that once was this country”, but giving me those guilt-ridden looks, I feel like, just come out and say what you’re trying to say already- the soda cans and cardboard boxes that ruined your canoe trip don’t belong to me- get out of my grill. You don’t have to walk the streets in your Native American garb, trying to canoe all over the place while the rest of us are driving.
But then the guy in the white Charger, or Malibu or whatever that is...
...COMPLETELY goes over the line and throws garbage....
...at his feet completely validating everything the Native American guy is thinking and it turns out, he’s right.
NO ONE deserves that – weird Indian dressed guy or not. Someone throws their Chinese food, or Jack-In-The Box crap at my feet, I may shed a tear too.
Hey guy in the Charger- join the human race!
