This Edgy Video With A Trash Talking Seed Is Hoping To Get People Talking

Meet Mr. Seed, a foul-mouthed cartoon, that denounces the agrochemical industry's control of seed. This edgy and laugh filled video mocks the modern seed, and that organic seeds such as Mr. Seed himself are tougher and stronger.

Created by Seed Matters, an initiative of the Clif Bar Family Foundation, the video aims to expose the truth of what happens when the same chemical companies that make pesticides also produce the majority of our seeds - and what that ultimately means to our food industry. “The video challenges the myth that giant agrochemical companies are feeding the world,” says Matthew Dillon, director of Seed Matters.

Regardless of what one's views are regarding the message of the video, it will surely leave an impression. Watch the video, comment and share, let us know what you think!
