Waltz and talk.
by Andrew MacGregor

Christoph Waltz is not a happy man. Sure, he’s won two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTAs, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards, but what use are they in an energy crisis? Some of his characters—Hans Landa, in particular—could talk for days. The time for talk, Waltz says, is over.

That means journalists, pundits, and academics must zip it as Waltz pursues action. He says too much energy is wasted, not enough solar panels are being installed, and there's never a charging station when he needs one… spoken like a man who thinks he knows best and ignores the people around them.

These include a couple of bemused brewery workers and a barista who gives as good as she gets (his and her 'whatevs' faces are superb). Before the actor can share his final thoughts, a couple of E.on workers pull up next to him to say: "Already on it, mate. Don't worry yourself."

Waltz's job is to make us side with the advertised energy company, who claim it's on them to make renewables. The brand have got plenty of attitude—will it become an attitude problem?
