    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!

      Always had the theory that Audrey was insane and murdered her parents. You never see or hear about her family. When talking to Ted she stresses about sounding crazy. And so on. When your kids watch movies repeatedly, you gotta do something to entertain your mind lol

    3. Meryl Joy Sarmiento

      The onceler is also to blame tho not just the consumers. Sure, they patronized his business, but he was the one firsthand was able to see its disastrous effects on the environment. He could've stopped the business or found an alternative. It all comes down as to where his best interests lie and his priorities

    8. Caspian Williams

      Can't believe Matpat is a capitalist apologist

    9. Alex Rider

      The thing is, these videos open you up to the different perspectives and opinions on movies and shows, but it does not ruin how much fun you can have watching them. Just saying.

    10. beast 124153

      Remember folks, if you harass a company for operating their business, while proudly sporting their product(s), you’re the problem, not the company.

      How can the consumer be the bad guy but the corporate business person cannot be the bad guy so technically they both the bad guys the consumer and the corporate person film Theory seem to miss something yeah well that's kind of what went down in the book that's based off of the Dr Seuss book and the trees didn't get replaced in the book either even though the person who trapped down all the trees had a few seeds to grow trees just like in the movie it's amazing how he did include that into his Theory on film Theory in the book I've noticed that there's no bad guy in the book The Lorax just like the movie because the only thing the bad guys guilty for in the book is just not thinking things through just like the movie in The Lorax from 2012 how did he miss this so I'm confused what's the difference other than adding an hour to the film at least an hour to the film is it an hour or two hours.

    22. Citlali Lopez

      I recently watched this movie in school for a project and throughout the whole movie I just thought of this theory xD

    23. Phoenix Manning

      Saying others don’t understand and then not understanding. He’s the villain because he makes money by neglecting and as he said increasing “the smog more smog in the air the more they will buy”. So maybe the cutting down trees was just stupidity. But in that one line he confirms he wishes to make it worse to make more. And that was before he started selling them when he thought it was dumb therefore it wasn’t us and he was the true villain but ITS JUST A THEORY A FILM THEORY

    24. Chantal Mukansoro

      It’s was always the consumers fault the only reason the dude came to the once was for a girl and onceler save the world by keeping the last seed

      Are the citizens of Thneedville only able to survive deforestation and climate change because they bought their way to survival, because their descendants were the extremely rich 1% in America today? Is this why Thneedville seems to be the only remaining piece of human civilization, made up of supreme living conditions and greed? Am I on to something, or do I just need to go to bed? P.S. We need to talk about inbreeding.

      Now that I think of it Matpat would be a great lawyer.

    41. Elan S

      This is hilarious, my friends and I watched the Lorax a few times at around October and November of this year, then today I am looking for if there are any videos about what we noticed about the people brutally shooting o'hare into the distance for selling them air, then i see a matpat vid

    42. Catman 321

      Why do I like the how bad can I be song Thats the only "good" part of the movie XD

    43. Kay Norton

      We need a rhyme theory

    44. Lucky Fucon

      Hey MatPat, I was wondering if you would consider doing an Amazing World of Gumball episode. Mainly around the shows villain Rob and the series finale. I've been watching it with my clients and I think this has the potential to make an interesting episode!

    45. BLA BLA

      it was a classic


      In my country if you drink water from the faucet you probably get sick, so everybody needs to buy water bottles and water jugs.

    47. Bro Action

      We need RicK and MOrty Videos..!!

    48. Taylor Watson

      I loved 🥰 the singing mat pat

    49. *•Brownie Bears•*

      I have been blown away... I will never be able to see the Lorax again and agree with my family that the “Bad Guys” are truly the “Bad Guys”😂

    50. scorpiox

      I loved tis movie as a kid so im kinda bias.

    51. Caleb Sanchez

      Like everything u buy in store u can have it for free u just need to make it other than air.

    52. crazitaco

      MatPat: We are all partly responsible for environmental destruction. Commies: LALALALALAL I CAN'T HEAR YOU

      I mean the residents of flint michigan might disagree on the need for bottled water.

      I was not expecting a lesson on ethics when I clicked on this video, but I’m not disappointed in the slightest.

    57. havahog

      There's a line in the 1972 version that makes a point of how long it takes a tree to grow, that the Oncler is doing it all too fast. There's no ambiguity there, just his greed. Illumination's is messy in comparison.

    58. Sheev Palpatine

      Movie plot explained poorly: Teen boy saves nature by simping

      Y do u ruin everything

      Great video dude

    64. Monica Chin

      You actually ruin my childhood

    65. Am not Bothered.

      What if they are all the bad guys what if this film just says humanity sucks

    66. the monster you hate

      *looks at social media*

    67. The Void30

      This seems like a pretty bad take overall. Not everyone can just vote with their dollar when they aren’t completely informed, if the company(ies) have almost complete control of the market, and if they rely on that product The customers just wanted the thenes. The Onceler should have listened to the Lorax and have been sustainable. It’s stupid and malicious. Money does corrupt in many cases. While some customers can make a sign and cite with their dollar, most of the time it doesn’t work on a large scale. Most people aren’t informed about the company’s inner workings and if they are doing harm. That’s what regulations are for.

    68. Rylee Barclay

      the oncelers hot

    69. Alex Exley

      I don't think this goes deep enough

    70. C-Note

      MatPat: They totally negate the message of the original story. Me: THANK YOU!

    71. Alayna Fick

      I hate bottled water... It tastes weird٫ so I drink filtered water in glass pickle jars. yeah

    72. stephanie dooher

      you are rong

    73. Enzo Coupat

      This is a shallow neoliberal take on corporations. Disappointed

    74. Fladee Mhel Carreon

      The question is: Who is the VILLIAN of the Lorax?

    75. Shnobbs Studios

      He could have just cut the top of the tree. Problem solved.

    79. Austin The San-Antonian

      I'd say that this a fantastic Analysis of how that a Free Market actually operates, whether or not one necessarily approves of said Economic System. Explaining Smithian Theory with a Dr. Seuss Movie. That's The Super Mario Effect, in Motion. Great Job, Man. Enjoyed the Video.

    80. Leo Roman Mabiasen

      Matpat: the onceler is not the bad guy Also what the onceler said: WHO CARES IF A FEW TREES ARE DIYIN’

    81. Sir Raulo

      There is no product if there is no demand.

    82. LordVandor1

      Morale of the story: capitalism is OUR fault

    83. T B

      Where were all the Thneedvillians that don't believe in "trees"?

    84. Leo Roman Mabiasen

      Matpat: bottled water is technically useless It’s not like everyone lives near a river!

      1. crazitaco

        @Dan Al Coming from US city that has had numerous water warnings in the past, I object. I don't trust the tap water for good reason. It also tastes awful like its heavily chlorinated, bottled tastes better.

      2. Dan Al

        I believe that he was referring to tap water. Germany is a great example of this. Tap water is the safest, most regulated substance in the country, but due to cultural reasons, which relate back to the East German communist regime of the Cold War, most Germans buy bottled water instead.

    85. Isaiah Williams

      Prolly one of the worst theories he’s put out in my opinion

    86. Libre Thai

      Oh, It's up to the consumer! despite the fact that most market is either a monopoly or a oligarchy, mean that the consumer either has no choice, or has to choose between equally bad companies. Also companies lies about their ethical practices. You will literally never a company admitting to use child labour for example. The only way for a consumer to know whether the product their buying is ethically produces, is for them to find out a company's suppliers, which I remind you, is not always public information.

    87. Prawn King

      The movie clearly focuses on the animals as the beings that were affected the most. That's literally the whole point of the movie.

    88. shaunthegoat

      I'm the lorax I speak for the trees respect nature or ill break your knees

    89. David Velerajter


    90. Ellis Worcester

      My main problem with tis video is that it ignores O'Hares' actions like to prevent the planting of trees and to pollute the earth to keep his customers demands up.He didn't cause the pollution but takes actions against the reversal of the pollution to keep making money

    91. Joshua Montgomery

      Cool. You now understand advertising.

    92. ChickBee

      this. this is my favorite movie! ill be dam if you say anything bad about it! >:( im kidding "^^

    93. Pop Culture Entertainment

      I’m watching this in science class to learn about how trees grow.... for some reason

      The lorax was one of my favorite movies growing up Thanks matpat, another one destroyed

    97. JusCallMeBea

      No one wants to hear my theory about them pumping novocain as "bottled air" and that's why people are so addicted to buying it. Novocain because everyone is always go happy and dancy.

    98. MOOZE Gamer15

      Pls Dr. Seuss' horton hears a who.
