Grey New York, the company behind the recent “gun store” PSA, has released a new public service announcement (PSA) which combines country music and stop animation of dismembered fingers.
The ad shows all the amazing (and naughty) things you can do with your fingers, but still “keep your finger off the trigger”.
The Women Against Gun Violence ad is aimed at millennials who might be desensitised in the shock tactics and gun gore of past PSAs.

“I want my peers, the millennial generation, to use their power to affect change, and I believe this PSA will help get them engaged in the conversation.”
