Three ironic video clips in which Western consumers express their thanks to the people of the Third World.
It’s time to thoroughly express our gratitude to the Third World. After all, the people who live there work hard on our behalf, day in and day out. They work hard – often for a mere pittance or for nothing at all – struggling in appalling and dangerous circumstances so we don’t have to go without our bananas, chocolate, mobile telephones, cheap clothes and plastic toys.
