David Lynch would like you to stop littering OR ELSE

Perhaps to make up for the bad rap he gave to woods, owls, sycamore trees, and the little pine weasel in Twin Peaks , David Lynch apparently also directed a 1991 PSA about littering . It’s almost exactly what you would expect from a David Lynch PSA about littering — there’s even weird jerky dancing AND coffee! — except there should probably be scarier lighting and at least one torch song. As far as I can tell, the idea here is that if you throw paper on the ground, rats (possibly giant rats? Oh, that trademark Lynchian ambiguity!) will … eat it? Read it? Write a Shelley poem on it and distribute it to high school girls? I don’t know what rats want with paper. I do know that it’s incredibly quaint to see environmental PSAs whose main concern is trash on the ground — not to mention ads that end with phone numbers instead of websites.
