The Vice President is like the less ambitious son who still lives at home who you give a few odd jobs to keep him from hanging around the house and eating all the cereal. You don't give him Ukraine or long term unemployment, but you let him handle the funerals of third world leaders and hiding the easter eggs for the annual White House lawn hunt. Then, when he asks to jump on a more media noteworthy political softball, you throw him rape. More specifically, being against rape. Who isn't against rape? I mean, outside of rapists, and even they probably wish they liked golf instead. Vice-President Biden and a few of his celebrity friends got together for a big public awareness campaign on YouTube to tell men that it's not cool to assault women. Sort of a gentle reminder, like keeping your elbows off the table and putting the toilet seat back down. It's so easy to fall into bad habits. Like rape.
If I saw it happening, I wouldn't blame her, I'd help her.-- Daniel Craig in the 1 is 2 Many PSAWow, crappy and tired looking Daniel Craig. That is mighty progressive of you. I'm not sure I could resist the urge to blame a rape victim for wearing her skirt to high or acting non-biblical. Enjoy your rape, harlot! I say that a lot. Or I used to before Daniel and Dulé Hill and President Obama educated me otherwise. I hope this public service campaign goes more swimmingly than that 20 year long 'This is your brain on drugs' series of commercials that spent billions only to turn out to intrigue young people into actually experimenting with drugs to see what fried egg brain felt like. I'd hate to think Benicio Del Toro is going to get a whole bunch of boys from the Chess Club to start widespread raping in their schools because they got really curious as to this awesome taboo.
I like to look shit up when the government declares something an epidemic. Rape and sexual assault are down 58% in the past couple of decades thanks to a general decrease in violent crime and far stricter sentencing and monitoring of sex offenders. About 80% of sex offenders continue to be somebody known to the victim. And they continue to happen overwhelmingly in poor, rural areas. You know, where the drunk uncles watch lots of government PSAs on YouTube and want to make Obama happy. As long as everybody involved in the making of this PSA feels better, and un-raped, I declare this project a government stamped winner.
