LA’s Metro System Returns With A Trio Of Truly Bonkers Ads Promoting Passenger Safety

One of the weirdest ad campaigns of 2017 has returned with an equally wonderful follow-up launched over the weekend.

The trio of ads are for Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and are designed to promote passenger safety and welfare on the city’s public transport.

Again, the ads play out like a Japanese anime cartoon and feature the series’ heroine, the pink-haired Superkind, who shows you how to behave on LA’s busses and trains.

Big orange blob ‘Bad Dude’ also returns, living up to his name as incumbent commuter pest.

The three ads tackle barging on to trains, playing loud music and buying from vendors. The first one below even has a wonderful cameo by Hollywood bad boy, Danny Trejo.

Check out the insane madness below in these truly memorable spots:
