I've always liked these since I was a little kid and you can say it helped me stay away from drugs, smoking, alcohol, care for the environment, get into reading, etc.

This is my personal favorites:

Speaking of Anti-drug PSAa have you ever heard of a 3-episode series from '88 called 'Straight Up'? We were forced to watch this in health class and it brought memorable songs like 'Take the Elevator Up' and 'Gimme that Headband!'

I like them just because most of them seem to have talking dogs. And I'm a simple, easily pleased individual. :lol:

Here are a few of my favourite PSA's:

This is an ad from the NSPCC about domestic violence towards children. It's actually very disturbing despite the cartoon child.

Here's something I remember from my childhood. Granted, the quality of this video is poor, but I'm sure it's high enough for people here to further appreciate it:

But my favourite PSA ever has to be this one:

I might post more that come to mind

awww, its A blue merle Australian shepherd. Anyone who thinks retrievers are the most loyal dogs have never had one of these, such gorgeous coat patterns too.

The first one is the my personal favorite, the stripped down style seems to be a way of saying "push away all those reasons you have in your head to not quit".
