It was only a matter of time before we saw a video of a guy standing in a blazing heatwave while watching his TV.
Luckily for us, the guy’s not a celebrity.
Instead, the video shows him chilling at a home with a view overlooking the city of Vancouver, Canada.
But in this case, it’s all in the name of saving the world from global warming.
The video’s director, Josh Harris, told Mashable he wanted to create a video that highlights the value of sustainable living.
“I’ve always loved the idea of putting a spotlight on a positive change,” Harris told Mashables.
While Harris said he wanted the video to highlight the value that living in a city can bring, he also wanted to raise awareness about climate change.
“I think there’s a lot of fear about how the climate is changing, but it’s not,” Harris said.
“It’s actually changing because people are moving away from their homes and they’re choosing to live closer to their cities.”
It’s important to recognize that even if you live in a very warm city, you’re not going to have the same impact on the climate as people who live in an extremely hot city, Harris said, noting that it’s important that people realize how important it is to live within their means.
Harris also told Mashups that the video’s message is also important for the general public.
“We want people to know that we’re here and we care about the planet,” he said.
There are several other examples of cool videos that have made the rounds over the years.
In 2010, for example, a man in Indonesia filmed himself sitting on a beach with a camera phone, making a YouTube video of him doing just that.
In 2015, a video about a man’s trip to a remote village in Nepal with a mobile phone camera caught the attention of the world.
Also in 2015, two men in India shared a video with a Facebook fan page.
One of the men posted the video on the popular social networking site, while the other took a selfie and uploaded it to YouTube.
In 2017, a guy in South Korea posted a video showing how he was walking along a highway in the wintertime and the weather in the surrounding area was getting worse.
But in the video, the weather didn’t appear to be as bad as it looked on the TV.
Despite the number of cool video creators out there, the average person may not realize that there are still many ways to save the planet.
