The new Lego Movie, which I will be taken to see by my son, has a villain called Lord Business. It's clearly a statement, but a statement made by Warner Bros who were a large corporation last time I looked.

Not only that but Lego themselves are pretty big and they are selling Lord Business' lair as a set for a cool £60. Are they laughing at us?

This reminds me of The Lorax fronting a campaign for Mazda's new 4x4.

Why do we buy this stuff?

Hmm - the kids went to see this at the weekend and we're all huge fans of Lego. Will ask them what message they came away with, especially as my boy wants to work for Lego.

I think you went to see The Lego Movie over the weekend and I think you really enjoyed it.

Yes, that's true, it's great fun. It still remains that large corporations were having a go at large corporate culture and that's ironic.
