Why can’t New York’s anti-drinking ads — by all accounts lame, by some accounts practically “outtakes from Fight Club“ — get more like Russia’s? This drunken squirrel with the bellowing voice and raw, crazy eyes is everything we need to remind us that our hair looks really bad after waking up in the morning after a bender. Plus, mysterious injuries! We hate those.
You in no way need to understand Russian to enjoy this, although we’re told the squirrel is ranting about chasing spiders up the walls, and perhaps killing his wife. That, dear New York City Health Department, is an anti-drinking ad.
