When our abuelitas cover their couches, their lamps, their TV sets—todo!—in clear plastic, what are they trying so desperately to protect? Our first project together, Latino Plastic Cover is a mock cable access commercial for the ultimate all-purpose product, guaranteed not only to keep dust off your muebles, but to solve all kinds of social ills affecting the Latino community & beyond. Discover the luxury of freedom!
