In this 2008 animated Pixar movie, an adorable robot is left behind to clean up the earth's trash after its people light out for space to grow fat and lazy. WALL-E teaches us about the evils of consumerism, while sending movie goers forth to buy lots of WALL-E party plates, plush toys, and dancing toy robots. The film is universally agreed to be a giant, though subtle, placement for Apple products, which of course must quickly move on to landfills (when not recycled) to make room for the next generation of iPods and iPhones. Looks like more work for WALL-E.
