Satirist Mark Humphries has finally given a bunch of angry adults what they need: A helpline for those upset over teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg trying to save the planet.
The satirical infomercial posted to Twitter shows a call center taking complaints from bitter grown-ups fired up at the thought of a young girl bringing much-needed awareness to the issue of global climate change.
The center fields a few exaggerated talking points from typically conservative critics, all highlighting the sheer hilarity and absurdity of grown adults acting like children.
"We shouldn't be listening to a child, we should be listening to an expert," one man says.
"Oh right, well do you want me to put you through to an expert?" the representative asks before being hung up on.
The video ultimately envisions a sad world of adults shouting into the void to blow off steam as a less-terrible alternative to bullying Thunberg online. Humphries pokes fun at a scenario that has managed to take the usual maturity levels of teenagers and grown-ups and invert them.
Even Greta got in on the joke, retweeting Humphries' video, adding, "Hang in there! Help is available."

"If you're a grown adult who needs to yell at a child for some reason, the Greta Thunberg Helpline is here to tolerate you." Grown adults, take note before you send that Tweet.
