Another thing zinc plays a part in is Iron nails, Zinc acts as a protective layer over the nail so that it will minimize corrosion.

The first Video titled "The Simpsons Zinc" is showing what it would be like without zinc in your life. Therefore it shows a boy who cannot use his electrical appliances to do his everyday things such as calling someone. The video shows that zinc is needed in a lot of technology we have now a days and how it is now a part of our way of life.  

 

The second video "Zinc Oxide and you-Kentucky fried movie" is about a mother trying to do her day to day routine but is unable to succeed at doing them because she has no zinc. So everything she tries to do is taken away to show how much zinc is needed and used in today's society. Therefore this video shows in a more humorous way how much we depend on zinc !
