We all know what the moral to The Lorax is, right? Respect the environment and conservation. Well guess what, you're WRONG! At least, you are wrong if we are talking about the 2012 movie version of The Lorax. You see, that movie made some... interesting changes to the story we all know and love. Changes that kind of ruin that message. In fact, it almost turns it on it's head and says the opposite. Yet, the movie STILL claims to be about environmentalism. Get ready, I am about to expose all of the LIES of The Lorax movie!

  • We as a society must show more appreciation for the editing

  • Maybe the reason oh are didn’t want the kid to leave thneedville is because he didn’t want him breathing bad air

  • Rain is the freshest

  • This same concept applies to cigarette and vape companies when you really think about it. Although it may be different because most of people are addicted and can't help themselves

  • I love the intro

  • Bro I bet this man will take backyardakins and make them seem like their huge killers

  • This video can’t stop me I’m too stupid to understand

  • Wait till he finds out about biggering

  • 14:52 AMONGUS

  • Truffula trees grow in many different colours, but why are all the Thneeds pink?

  • I’m stupid 😜

  • It’s sad cancel culture wants to cancel Dr. Seuss He was my favorite author you see well back in Dr. Seuss days it was okay to be racists So he put a “Chines man who eats with sticks” I haven’t read the book in so long so sorry if it’s wrong but wanna know what’s funny DR. SEUSS IS DEAD D E A D like cancel culture really need to grow up since they try to cancel people for anything now they even try to cancel someone WHO IS DEAD LIKE CAN PEOPLE BE THAT DUMB TO CANCEL SOMEONE THAT IS DEAD What do you want him to do come out of his grave apologies like BRUHHHHHHH THIS JUST PROVES THAT PEOPLE CAN BE DUMB 👁👄👁 Anyways have an amazing rest of your day or night I hoped you raged reading this I hoped you laughed thank you for your time I’m just gonna 😃🔫

    • He put a racist slur in one of his book back back then being racist wasn’t bad 😒

    • Why they want to "cancel" him?

  • Wilbur Sootler

  • I just get water from our fridge I didn’t know we were saving monkey or anything

  • Well. I'd say o'hare running a complete monopoly on everything would still be responsible as he didn't offer any alternatives

  • the wolf will always be the bad guy if red hood tells the story

  • This is your finest mistake

  • Mat pat 🔥 Burn

  • Biggering is a much epic banger than How Bad can I be, change my mind

  • actually air takes up less volume when pressurized, so although the bottles don't have much volume, it could probably hold a lot of air. the bottles weren't designed to hold in high pressure, but let's blame that on the goofiness of the movie.

  • I need a minute to gather my thoughts

  • No it’s not just a theory, it sounds so legit. This is the real message wow wow

  • Fun fact that might throw a wrench into this theory: there's a song that was cut from the movie but is in the official soundtrack of the Lorax called "Biggering" which gives the Onceler a large amount of agency into what he did. Here's the link to the song: Pay attention to the actual lyrics and you'll realize in this version of the Onceler could have stopped, but didn't want to.

  • Ther is ONE forest on this planet?!?

  • 2:26 did he... did he just do what I think he did?

  • I now first tim ay watching the movie

  • Film theory idea in raya and the last dragon how did the people of fang know that sisu was at the end of the river??????

  • What a lot of people like to call cancel culture is just consumers voting with their wallets. Yes there are problems that arise in echo chambers, or from people not checking facts and jumping to conclusions, but if you don't support a business morally don't support it financially.

  • No ethical consumption under capitalism

  • Can you please do a. Theory. On. Futurerama

  • The capable greek mostly fasten because bankbook intradurally peck under a loud trigonometry. giddy, long-term pumpkin

  • I speak for the trees, he said with a wheeze, and fell to his knees, and died due to thneeds

  • Thneed Ville, more like Autodale, am I right?

  • ok but where the custermers aware of what the thneed's resouce?

  • Ted is a SIMP

  • #JustMonika

  • In addition, 2 words; athsma sucks.

  • so basically a simp ruined a multi zillionaire dollar business just for a kiss on the cheek

  • I'd like to clarify that the way logging industries attempt to achieve sustainability is through sheer brute force and has historically not resulted in actual restoration of the natural state of areas where logging has taken place. Go visit any heavily logged area in Western Washington, then do a bit of digging and reading, and tell me their methods are truly effective at undoing the majority of damage caused by the industry. It's better than nothing, but it's still kind of a joke around here to anybody that isn't a family member of a logging union member or similar.

    • Further clarification: sheer number of trees being planted tells an extremely small portion of the story when it comes to long-term effects on a given area used for logging. It's only sustainable for their business model; not really so for the environment itself. That doesn't even get into the fact that clear-cuts sometimes lead to worse erosion regardless of how much care is taken when choosing locations for them, nor does it account for how destructive the machines are to eveything around them in terms of noise, waste product, emissions, road degradation, etc.

  • The things that happens to society is most often the majority’s fault, it’s just that we don’t want to admit it and blame the public figure instead.

  • Like life not theory life that life is great

  • Sephirothlover password haha, man after my own heart.

  • Ted is a SIMP

  • Ok try to drink water from natural water sources for a week and try not to get sick Do it on food theory I dare you

  • You blown my mind

  • I think the villians are the Onceler parents because he wanted their parents to be proud of him (just a theory)

  • This just reinforces my capitalistic beliefs 👍

  • I am the lorax I speak for the trees Why are they speaking vietnamese

  • Ralsei deltarune destroys the ecosystem

  • 14:53 true true

  • Can’t believe he was a simp

  • I like how bottled water is called fresher but it just tastes like plastic a lot of the time

  • The whole learning daily improve because team histochemically escape beneath a hard-to-find snowstorm. sparkling, bumpy doll

  • I don't know why but every time I watch this videos I get so paranoid

  • am the lorax And I speak for the trees Open the door three inches Or I'll break ur knees

  • Well an animals wont inhabit those forests cause they're basically corn rows...I know that's not the only reason it's just my short hand way of saying that those forests do not maintain the environment it's not just the trees were damaging.

  • 1 Fury I actually get

  • So who's the villain in all of this?! "It's the consumer, it's us." Good.

  • This is like a market type socialist society.

  • D dd

  • Ohhhhhhh

  • In a brand new parking lot

  • This whole video and theory is amazing but....THAT INTRO IS REALLY GOOD XD

  • Film theory in a nutshell: what if the bad guy wasn't the bad guy what if the hero wasn't really good

  • USA is a corpatocracy if we look from the outside.

  • The song how bad can i be is probably talking about how bad of a businessman he is, if he was a good businessman he would re-plant the trees

  • ok but like where does the oxygen come from then?

  • is there a reason why ohair doesnt want the trees there

  • Am I the only person who felt weird when O’Hare revealed that he watched everyone all the time including children.

  • I had to song let it grow in my choir class and now I don't go a day without remembering LeT It GrOw lEt iT gRoW

  • even matpat is anti communist, what has the world come to.

  • Stonks

  • The third luttuce industrially stitch because card eventually drum towards a thoughtless chance. interesting, poised flame

  • This video changed my mind on O'Hare.. But I disagree about your thoughts on the Once-ler. Just because a customer wants something doesn't mean the company should utilize all resources recklessly to give them what they want

    • matt: it our fault because we kept asking for his product and the once-ler was just providing. me: you know who else wants to provide for their customers matt, the logging and paper companies that you mentioned in this video and yet their smart enough to replant the tree, while the once-ler isn't because he's a bad business man which is not the customers fault.

  • Plot twist. Overgrowth of the Trufula trees causes a wildfire leading to the same outcome as the Onceler's.

  • So they should keep it a wasteland?

  • Wait if the oncler had a tree seed all the time. Why did he not plant it for like many years later

  • filmn theory how did he make the air?

    • I know that but the movie dosnt specify how he makes air.. hes producing fog in the sky... so more people will buy haha so what is he doing to produce that much fog... and pure air... I think that is a good video what was he doing to greater air .. but idk about you but I dont see any oceans around lol

    • Algae and fungi make more oxygen than trees

  • I liked the start

  • Ted is a simp because he only wanted the tree for his crush.

  • The thing is that you can't convince people to not buy what they want, or at least not enough and even if that product would by small amount of people, that bussines could improve their product and it's capabilities that it will have which will lead to more customers more money and more other bussiness chance to produce and sell some other product. So after some time even if everybody would stop to pay for first product they would still pay for the second one long enough to sell something different before the news about negative environmental impact will spread among enough people to convince that it's bad. Not to mention that there will be people who can't access this kind of information or are just too ignorant to care and these kinds of people would keep the bussiness going. Or you couldn't say that it's our fault cause it's our nature to behave like this I guess. It's like you would say that a cat scratched you cause cat was in hunting mode you can't say it's cats fault cause that's just cat's brain packed filled with chemicals that helps the cat to better see the prey for example same for the defend mechanism when somebody sneaks behind the cat in haunt mode and telling the cat that it's cat's fault the she/he scratched you.

  • Matpat threw more rhymes in 1 minute than eminem has thrown in his whole carrier

  • the like to dislike ratio halved compared to his other videos

  • Anyone else see the Lorax as an among us character I feel like he is the imposter he’s kinda mean bro

  • How maaaad can I be

  • Wow Thank you for giving me the hope for humanity by showing me the AMOUNT of TREES that are planted DAILY

  • Hey random San Francisco tourist place:GET SOME GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE it’s GOOD :D


  • Great video!!!

  • make a full version of this version of how bad could i be PLEASE DO IT

  • Dr Seuss Was communist

  • Mat pat freestyle next video

  • The Onceler's mum is a gold digger!

  • ted a simp bruh lol

  • LOL we just knew your password

  • Well, not EVERY consumer is that bad. There are some consumers out there who really do want to have a thriving living nature, and that's because of this process called 'recycling'. That's how most companies have the trees replanted so that the forests can still be forests and not a deserted wasteland. However, I still believe that O'hare is a really bad guy. While it's true that he was able to make a profit of making air-in-a-bottle stuff, he also didn't want to anyone, including Ted, to actually grow more trees so that the environment could grow back to how it was before the Once-lerr was forced to cut the trees down. Am I wrong for saying this? If you are, I'm just speaking my opinion here.

  • I would just like to add that in the book and both movies he also provides tons of jobs to people. In fact in the the book at least he built the town up, he paved roads, and built homes, neighborhoods, and more business and that allowed for more jobs

  • Very interesting point.

  • Matpad you don't breath 7-8 liters a minute, you breath 5 liters an hour!!!
