PSAs That Didn't Work

Public service announcements (PSAs) are created to help educate people on the dangers of things like drinking heavily, having unprotected sex, or going to karate class while high on the pot. The trouble is, some ads fail miserably. Whether the message is muddled, inadvertently funny, or involves some lady giving permission to masturbate (more on that in a minute), most PSAs raise more snickers than awareness. See for yourself …

LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX, BABY … WITH BRISTOL PALIN & THE SITUATION
Casting infuriating no-talents like Bristol Palin and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino already sets the stage for a rebellion against the forthcoming message. Add dropping the word “situation” close to 20 times and viewers are ready to grab their pitchforks, riot, and then scour every bizarre dating site on the internet to find partners who want to engage in unsanitary condomless sex.

C-3PO and R2-D2 DON’T WANT YOU TO SMOKE
Instead of having two emotionless droids that don’t own lungs, brains, or hearts to warn people about the perils of smoking, why not show the scene from the Mos Eisley Cantina where that drunken asshole gets his arm lopped off to demonstrate the perils of hanging out in shitty bars with drunken skeeves? Also, what does R2-D2 do with that cigarette after he decides not to smoke it? Litter? That’s a fine, goddammit!
