Yucky Anti-Drug PSA

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

title Anti drugs commercial: Eating your brain
description “A very graphic, but very cool anti drugs commercial that shows you are literally eating your brains bits by bits every time you take drugs.” Uh-huh. There are good reasons to not take illicit substances, but couldn’t they be more honest about them in a public service announcement? Metaphor, right. But as one commenter said, “That’s one nasty commercial. Would it do any good except make people throw up tho?”
