Running nearly six minutes, “Purple Bins” is nearly four minutes too long. But I couldn’t not include it here for the following reasons:

1. Its a public service announcement from the City of Los Angeles.
2. It features Norwood Young’s driveway – you know, the one that has statues of David on it.
3. The humor is very wrong. As in if you aren’t offended, you’re a rotten person. And I love you for it. Call me.

To find out exactly what the city’s new purple bins are for, you’ll have to watch the short, written and directed by Susan Deming, after the jump.

  1. OK, that was severely sick and twisted. Hilarious, though, because there’s no way in hell it’s actually real. But thanks for leading us in with the idea that perhaps it is.

  2. I wasn’t offended, but I didn’t think it was that hilarious either. Not bad, but not great. And I agree, it went on a little too long.

    Now if only such a thing really existed. Oh, the possibilities…

  3. I agree that it ran a bit longer than needed. And I think the voiceover line “and save money on your grocery bill” would’ve been stronger had the filmmakers not gone on to show us what was otherwise a sly, subtle joke.

    I give it 2.5 stars.
