WATCH: Darren Aronofsky Directs Gruesome PSAs for the Meth Project
One could argue that Darren Aronofsky’s first drug awareness PSA was his film ‘Requiem for a Dream.’ I can’t imagine many people watched that movie and then popped a pill. Now, the award winning director is scaring the pants off of anyone who is thinking about trying meth. Even Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad’ would quit his life of well meaning crime if he saw these babies.
Aronofsky partnered with the Meth Project, an organization that tends not to pull any punches when it comes to educating the public about the dangers of meth. As you can see from the ad above, they want teens to see the reality of a life addicted to meth.
The PSAs do much the same, and don’t shy away from showing the rotted teeth and cut up skin of an addict. All three are below, but we’re not sure you’ll get through all of them.
