…It’s Movie Monday: The Journey?

The Journey

The Journey is a fantastic PSA by Justin Young about where your water comes from, how water waste contributes to global warming, and how much you can save by turning off the tap.

Check it out:

…Cocaine is bad for the brain?

Caution: This video is very graphic.

In Australia, they apparently don’t have to hold back for their PSAs like they do in the US.

To teach people the dangers of cocaine, this clip follows a man as he enters a bathroom, peels back his head, and then proceeds to snort down a little piece of his own brain.

It gets the message across loud and clear, but is definitely not for the squeamish.

Now Look What You Did

Now Look What You Did is a set of the cutest PSAs you’ll ever see.

Whether your vice is smoking or littering, it’s effecting the environment, and it’s time to change.

…Alicia Silverstone got naked for vegies?

Alicia Silverstone

I’m not sure what shedding the clothes and showing the goods has to do with giving up the meat and eating the greens, but if it gets a surprisingly sexified Alicia Silverstone back in the spotlight, then I guess there’s no need for an explanation.

The Clueless star bore all for a new PETA PSA, and though I doubt the message, there’s no doubting the medium.

Does this make you want to go veg?

…It’s Movie Monday: Three Legged Legs?

Three Legged Legs

Today’s Movie Monday features the work of Three Legged Legs. What is Three Legged Legs, you ask? Well, it’s “a hillbilly with stinky hobbit feet, an angry brown guy freaking out all the time, and a guy who likes wearing collared shirts under regular cotton t-shirts”.

The first film is a shorty but a goodie. Humans!, a 60 second global awareness PSA “sensationalizing the excessive, all-consuming nature of the human being”, shows the Earth’s “utter demise in a fun and sickening kind of way”.

The next “animated fable”, Samurai, was a collaboration between TLL and GE for their Imagination Theater campaign. “It’s a tale of a pint-sized samurai faced with a seemingly impossible challenge as proposed by a behemoth Emperor and his wicked minions. Can you spot all the ninjas?”.

Their next short, Los Angeles Lets Be Friends, “depicts friendly monsters overrunning Los Angeles to spread joy and beauty throughout an otherwise drab and monochromatic society. Despite the creatures’ best efforts, the public isn’t swayed”.

Finally, Ricochet, a short “featured primarily as a visual effects showcase”, that “puts the viewer in the middle of an all out battle between two disparate armies set in an apocalyptic near-future environment”. Be warned though, this one gets violent.

You Tube Awards

Bonus: If that didn’t satisfy your movie appetite for the day, be sure to check out YouTube’s 2006 Video Awards Winners. You’ve probably seen most of them already, but maybe you missed one or two, so it’s always good to go back.
