Your Hump-Day Recess: How Much Stupidity Can You Bear?

We can narrow down the types of drunk driving PSA to two, in general: the serious and the light. The serious can be scary, thoughtful, clever, disturbing, or illuminating. They can focus on the human cost, the possiblility of death or injury, of humiliation or disrupted lives. The funny, on the other hand, generally center around one quality: stupidity. In particular, the stupidity of the decision to drink and drive.

This PSA comes from the Tennessee Governor’s Highway Safety Office, as part of the state’s “Booze It and Lose It” program. It’s as good a depiction of stupidity as any.
