Ash, what a fascinating read! Yeah, it seems fear with Covid doesn't make a lot of sense as so many people are already scared.
The AIDS ads of the 1980s along with the educational movies they showed in middle school gave me nightmares also.
I've been trying to find that "Your Brain on Drugs" poster for months now, but watching the ad is a close second.
You make lots of interesting points here and I appreciate how you break it down with different PSA examples.
Also, yum, gnocchi!
