Darren Aronofsky, acclaimed director of 'Requiem for a Dream,' 'The Wrestler' and 'Black Swan,' has released four TV ads warning about the dangers of using the street drug methamphetamine (videos below).
The spots are part of 'The Meth Project', an educational campaign funded by the non-profit Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation. The director seemed to be a logical choice, as his 'Requiem for a Dream' film was about four characters whose lives are ripped apart by heroin and speed addiction.
The videos are graphic and disturbing, and one of them implies a homosexual sex act. Another also shows the aftermath of self-inflicted violence.
As disturbing as these spots may be, they will be aired on elevision networks, according to Mediabistro.com.
