    "Disposable Lez" is a play on words of "disposable lens" a black comedy on how fast and frequent many lesbians tend to dump (dispose) and find (recycle) girlfriends. A cynical attempt to reflect on the harsh reality of the art of dating in the dyke community.

    Urara overhears the conversation of two high school girls talking about how convenient disposable lens are to use these days. In their conversation they never mention the words "disposable lens" and they somehow trigger Urara s memories of how frequent she has been dumped lately The copy at the end of the first half of this video tells the audience that "We can use Disposable Lez anywhere, anytime". But in the second half, Urara gets "picked up" (recycled) and the ending message tells the audience we should "try to recycle and be environmentally friendly"!
