Greenpeace caused a stir last week with an affecting video protesting against Lego’s commercial relationship with Shell, reported to be worth £68 million. It shows a Lego-brick Arctic being drowned in oil as a doleful version of Everything Is Awesome (The Lego Movie’s theme song) plays. Warner Bros, the studio behind the movie, can’t seem to make its mind up about the ad, though. Greenpeace received notices from YouTube and Vimeo that the video was being removed pending a copyright investigation – which it would almost certainly lose – only to have the complaints withdrawn on Monday (14 July).
