Here’s an extended cut version of the original PSA:
The Mexico City Metro has installed a “penis seat” in one of its subway cars, featuring a molded likeness of a man’s torso and penis.

Trade magazine Adweek reports:
Deb and Maria are the same age, each has two kids, and they live just a few miles apart. Deb, however, will live, on average, 15 years longer than Maria. This public service video from The California Endowment — narrated by George Takei — explains the discrepancy:
What determines how long we live? The surprising thing to us was that adjacent communities can have a 15 year-difference in life expectancy.
“Negroes and whites, Jews and Christians, [women are seen but not heard],” says the cheery announcer. “We are all in this together.” Also we’re all in the circus and on the baseball diamonds, high rise construction sites and neighborhood block parties.
Ground-breaking integrated pre-rock-n-roll boy band, the Benny Goodman Quartet, swing the PSAs to a brilliant climax as silhouetted jitterbugging hep-cats prefigure iPod commercials. We can make beautiful music together if we all play ball! Bake a cake for your colored neighbor. HOME TEAM USA! Tuned up for freedom! Solid!
Do you think Mustache Guy is Latino?
It’s a tragedy that happens every day – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Please reach deep in your pockets to help the extremely wealthy, with American Gold Cross.

It was the tail end of the 1960s and Frank Zappa of the Mothers of Invention was making Public Service Announcements for “underground radio.” Few examples survive, but this short audio segment warns impressionable young people about a popular Chicano-themed cartoon that had not even been invented yet — a subversive cartoon that could “rot your mind!” Let’s listen in to see what Zappa has to say…
The Land Down Under offers this public service announcement urging high school kids to stay in school and don’t be a slacker.
We don’t care if it’s a perfect day to cut class and enjoy skimpy swimsuits and sexytime surfing.
If you mates and sheilas go walkabout, you’ll have no one to blame for the consequences but your own billabong. Karma is a boomerang.
This video tries maybe too hard to be cool, but it’s packed with information for college students on how to apply for DACA.

The human rights marketeers are dead set against *&^%$#@ snakes on a plane. You’d think that with all the groping and X-rays, the TSA could easily detect assholes, but not so much.
Hey, you two! Get a room! (From España with love, but not too much.)
They didn’t think it could happen to them! Speak to your kids about cooties…before cooties speak to them first.
Funny former Saturday Night Live comedian Amy Poehler is down for Domestic Workers, and comes clean on something not many in the U.S. will admit:
She could not be the busy actress and mom that she is without her hard-working domestic help.
Poehler’s Public Service Announcement (PSA) is a call to action to petition to California Gov. Jerry Brown get him to sign the California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights. Our moms and tias and abuelas have worked hard for years and deserve humane and equitable treatment afforded to others.
You can support the California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights by calling your state senator and Gov. Brown (916-445-2841) today. To learn mas, please visit www.domesticworkers.org.
