I was a weird kid. I loved PSAs and safety videos. It was, and still is, a dream to become a PSA director.
A lot of money from The War On Drugs got funneled into making some of these educational masterpieces. The special effects were pretty cutting-edge at the time, and there’s even some good old-fashioned hand-drawn 2D animation.
I sorted through about 300 PSAs to compile this video mixtape. There’s lots of scarier, Requiem For a Dream style PSAs, some of which are downright disconcerting. I didn’t include any of those in this – just wanna keep it lighthearted and trippy. Enjoy!
