The Secret Life Of The Majestic Plastic Bag

Have you ever wished the plastic bag from American Beauty got its own spinoff? Your dream has come true. This is a mock nature documentary narrated by Jeremy Irons that follows “one of the most clever and illustrious creatures: the plastic bag” from its first birthing into the wild all the way to its ultimate home, the Pacific gyre.

It’s actually a promotional video to drum up support for AB 1998, a bill in California that would ban stores from using plastic bags. Not gangbusters, but amusing enough.

Watch out for that teacup Yorkie! And the hungry mouths of dolphin and turtle predators!
