I think therefore I wood

Je suis donc je bois from Yseult Renard on Vimeo.

If your French is sufficiently rust free, please let me know what these drinks are talking about. The title apparently translates to "Therefore I am wood." Another puzzler

Definitely a handsome bit of film making, though.

Thank goodness for google translate... which only made a little sense when I cut and pasted the written description from Vimeo:

Tired of comedies with rose water?
Take a refreshing and refreshing break with "I Am So I Drink", guaranteed 100% natural ingredients.
The abuse of this film is not dangerous for health, to consume without moderation.

This short film was made in stop motion and without budget as part of the Nikon Film Festival on the theme "I am a meeting" in less than 140 seconds.

A nicely presented commercial about drinking in moderation?
Perhaps, but I'm still not sure.

That wasn't a bad idea, looking at the translation of the written description. Perhaps a warning not to drink overmuch at business meetings, especially if you're driving? I remember near the end of the Soviet Union there was a great concern about alcoholism among the official classes. I don't know if that's something they're worried about in France. In any case, it's nice to see a creative response.
