'We Care About New York:' David Lynch On Littering In The City
Some of the city's anti-smoking advertising might be disturbing/gross, but no public service announcement creeps us out quite like this one that the Atlantic Cities alerted us to earlier this week. It's David Lynch's 1991 take on why we shouldn't litter, and it features ominous music, an unsuspecting child, careless adult litterers and intense close-ups of rats that give them oddly humanoid qualities. Watch video after the jump.
As you watch you just want to scream -- as in a horror film -- "DON'T THROW THAT PIECE OF TRASH ON THE GROUND OR SOME TERRIBLE ILL WILL BEFALL YOU."
(We tried the number at the end of the ad. It's a beauty supply store.)
