Alien Zlog and his sidekick Asbo report back to their planet, Zorlich, on the terrible plight of robotic shoppers, known as people. From Eastenders to Knightsbridge, shopping for ‘stuff’ is out of fashion; instead humanoids shop for ‘happiness’. Zlog says: “It seems the higher ups want to simulate being poor”.
Zlog and Asbo feature on WORLDbytes, the online magazine news channel created by WORLDwrite volunteers. It aims to get behind the headlines and promote a people-first perspective on a wide-range of issues; the programme’s credo is “don’t shout at the telly, change the message on it”.
