Dildos Fight Gun Violence in Seriously Funny New Ad

Editor's Pick

Taking a serious tone is the traditional tack most use in PSAs fighting gun violence, as evident in award-winning efforts like Unload Your 401K out of Grey New York for States United to Prevent Gun Violence. But gun safety organization Evolve and McCann New York use a lighthearted approach to address the issue in this hilarious ad directed by David Kerr showing kids having a ball with other "forbidden" household objects.
