Desperate houseplants in save-water PSAs


Two grown women dress up in leaves and petals to portray "desperate houseplants" in this trippy Australian water-conservation campaign from ad agency MWC. In what are surely the best commercial performances ever delivered by actresses sitting in giant flowerpots, the gals get their roots in a royal twist. Jivey "Rose" steals the show with her rant on overwatering: "Girl, I mean, it was nice to begin with, but puh-lease, I be drownin! … He ain't gettin' my flower!" Thorny words. The guy must've been a real prick. These ladies have nothing on Denver Water's drunk flowers, though. Those plants know how to party. Three more spots after the jump. Via Ads of the World.
