There’s a new action hero in town and it’s not James Bond. Meet Graverson Green, a planet lover on a new animation by Greenpeace UK.


The website, CoalFinger.com, gives you an in-depth look about the fight against coal by our environment hero, on a great script by TellyJuice, animation by Blue Zoo and the almost perfect webdesign by BiroCreative.


A different, but very creative approach of making the switch to clean power, that it will surely be popular amongst kids. And if you’re a blogger, if you write about the campaign, you’ll get some inbound link love from the Graverson Green’s blogroll, a small step to reach 200’000 video streams.

Comments about Coalfinger

Just to let you know the counter on the coalfinger website is a fake.

When I had a problem with loading the video I refreshed my browser the counter went down about 20 points and increased the same way it had when I first went onto the site.

How’s lieing now Greenpeace? I though I could trust you but you are the same as multinational companies who take advantage of other people
