Cash, Grass, or App

by Syd Briscoe

letgo: “My Round” - 30s

With many small businesses favouring card or phone payments over cash, it's no wonder people are starting to become confused by the whole concept of exchanging money for good and services. Thankfully, this entertaining commercial from letgo gives us a quick refresher in capitalism.

A man tries to pay for the next round of drinks with a lawnmower... only to be rudely reminded of the fact appliances aren't currency. Luckily for him, the entirely nonplussed bartender has the advertised app ready to go - quickly swapping goods for cash.

It's a well-constructed demonstration of the app's utility, enhanced by lovely performances and a dry sense of humour. Good to see directors Tim & Eric's strain of absurdist humour is still in fine shape, too.
