Cool Videos: Watch Darren Aronofsky's brutal anti-meth PSAs

11.09.2011

Returning to the world of fucking us up with the horrors of drug use, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM director Darren Aronofsky recently directed three new PSAs about the use of meth. Funding by The Meth Project, established by businessman Thomas M. Siebel in 2005 and designed as a large-scale prevention program aimed at reducing Meth use through public service messaging, public policy, and community outreach, the new ads will probably want to make you stay home, hug a cat and do your homework.

The TV ads will run in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Montana, and Wyoming - states with the largest numbers of meth users. The ads are going online in conjunction with today's launch of MethProject.org, a site devoted to promoting meth awareness among teens.

As for the ads? Well, what do you expect. They're uncompromising, gritty and bleak - everything you'd want from an Aronofsky anti-drug PSA (though couldn't they just show every kid REQUIEM in health class?).

Love the quality of the spots but I think these are a little over wrought.

Requiem

"Requiem" even had me avoiding Flintstones chewables after I saw it. Extremely scared of children's vitamins once again. Thanks Darren.

Gave me chills. Loved it. I'm sick of the "It's cool not to do drugs" ads and the like, or the "tobacco executives are jerks" ads.
These are scary and real and whether they work or not, I like the approach.
