Lego's partnership with Shell 'not awesome', according to Greenpeace viral

Lego lovers be warned - the typically idyllic scene at the beginning of this video is not as it seems. Prepare to watch the happy toy characters drowned by a rising tide of oil, overseen by a cigar-puffing Shell executive.

The film is the latest phase in Greenpeace’s campaign to get Lego to end its ties with Shell, after the Danish toymaker released a statement defending its association with the brand last week.

The ad features a solemn cover version of the theme song from the recent Lego movie, ‘Everything is Awesome’.
