New U of M anti-binge drinking poster: "Drink, drank, drunk, dead."
|Friends don't let friends drink so much they end up dead.|
A new series of posters makes the point that friends can help their more-drunk friends avoid some of the worst possible consequences of slamming back a few tee many martoonies.
One poster shows a co-ed resembling Aaron Rodgers lying on the ground, looking wasted. "Drink, drank, drunk, dead," says the top of the poster. The bottom: "Don't let your friend drown in his own puke." If only Robert Plant would've taken that advice...
Will the posters do any good? WCCO found that it depends which students you ask.
Said Darya Antanovich:
They show these in high school. It's just that these posters are everywhere. It's not something I've never seen before. It wouldn't grab my attention at all.Ajaj Chamon had a different take:
With the amount of bad decisions made involving drinking. Something like this is probably a good idea. Probably needs to happen around campus.The anti-binge drinking posters represent the second stage of the U of M's so-called Step Up campaign. The first focused on personal safety -- "He's been prowling around the ATM and something doesn't feel right... You've got a cell phone. Use it. STEP UP" -- and the third will focus on sexual violence.
