This hilarious upbeat collage animation with narration in Biblical style, tells a tongue-in-cheek modern-day parable of how men with ties colonize the planet. After landing in flying saucers, they infiltrate earth spreading the plague of coffee shops, featuring low-fat and soya lattés and all manner of baked goods, only to be followed by golf courses and the ruthless sports utility vehicle. Having succumbed to the charms of these slick businessmen, the people of the earth are pulled back from the brink of pestilence just in time by the appearance of a saviour who announces he will "cast off his tie!" The people rejoice as the three moons rise again and the men with ties depart, taking the afflictions of evil consumerism with them.
