Exxon still loves Volvox

I hope Exxon’s scientists know more more algal taxonomy than their ad team. We’ve seen before that they don’t know the difference between Chlorophyte green algae and cyanobacteria (Exxon loves Volvox). Some of the things they’ve lumped together in that video are more distantly related than humans are to mushrooms.

I suspect the ad team was just told ‘algae’, as if that’s one thing. Volvox, as everyone knows, is the coolest of the algae, so naturally they’re going to use Volvox footage.
