|Short Synopsis:||Have you ever thought about what kind of journey a dollar bill makes before landing inside your wallet? In an age of COVID-19 with an intense scrutiny on hygiene, no one seems perturbed about handing another person cash. While the world went into lockdown, people fought each other out of fear for dwindling toilet paper resources and screamed at each other to keep their distance inside Walmart, cash still made its rounds from hand to hand, from pocket to pocket, from one insanitary surface to another.
In our spec spot DIRTY MONEY, we tell the story of a freshly printed ten-dollar-bill emerging from an ATM and follow its gradual unhygienic demise through the disgusting scenarios it encounters while changing its owner multiple times. But isn’t there a more hygienic solution to rescue Hamilton’s handsome face from mutilation? There certainly is.
