Who would be evil (or stupid) enough to actually sue Greenpeace? It's a question asked and answered by TV smash hit Succession, in which everyone's favourite upwards-falling-failing-social-climber cousin Greg plans to do just that. And Greenpeace has outdone itself by comparing that situation to a real life lawsuit being brought by oil giant Shell, in a brilliantly witty new video called 'Don't be like Greg'.

The video shows the scene in which Greg explains his plans to sue Greenpeace for defamation of character. A bemused Tom – who sees the issue with how the public could perceive such an action – answers, 'who's next Greg? Save the Children?". See it below (then hop over to the best print ads rundown).
