Does the City of Toronto have a sense of humour or just bad taste?

Apparently the City of Toronto has a sense of humour after all. Well, maybe.

In an effort to foster awareness of the City's e-waste recycling program, 'Chuck' and 'Vince' have taken to YouTube to tell Torontonians they want your unused electronics. The video, which clearly has designs on going viral, is a little reminiscent of the "cash for gold" commercials that plague television. Chuck and Vince hop around the screen reminding us that they want our old electronics, be that pre-internet computers, stereo speakers or rotary phones.

Dare I say...it's actually pretty amusing. (Well, how can it not be with gorilla masks and robot sound effects?) Can't wait for the "keep garbage collection public" clip.

What do you think of the video?
