The dynamic power of social media to generate attention is exemplified in this Squarespace short film featuring Sesame Street’s Oscar the Grouch who is content to lay around in his garbage can surrounded by trash. But one person’s trash is another’s treasure as an admirer is taken by Oscar’s environment, seeing it as a work of art which she posts online, striking a responsive chord with the world at large.

Suddenly Oscar via his Squarespace website is a famous, revered artist--much to his chagrin; until he realizes that he’s more miserable than ever as a result, which he comes to like.

Jim Jenkins of O Positve directed this short titled “A Cautionary Tale” for Squarespace’s in-house agency. Q Department handled music and sound design, with audio post from Digital Arts.
