A tree uproots and leaves the rainforest

House and garden brand Unilever has released a short film about a weary tree that leaves the rainforest, after the realisation it might be safer in the city.

The clip, features a Lord of the Ringsesque scenario where a mighty tree uproots itself and begins walking on two.. roots?

The tree then leaves the rainforest for the concrete jungle that is the city witnessing all sorts of people, and having all sorts of people witness it and spreading the message that humans are the only ones who can help the dire situation.

The message ends with the text: “A tree may be safer in the city than in the rainforest. Let’s change this. At Unilever we are committed to making our products sustainably without harming our forests.”
