Electric Zoo Anti-Molly PSA

In the wake of numerous deaths and hospitalizations at EDM festivals lately, patrons at New York’s Electric Zoo festival — where two people died last year — will be forced to watch a PSA about the dangers of drugs to gain entry. As Pollstar explains, it’s called “The Molly” and was written and produced by Dexter co-creator James Manos Jr. and his 19-year-old daughter Ellie Manos. It’s part of a campaign called Come To Life. Electric Zoo founders Laura De Palma and Mike Bindra issued this statement to explain:

Our message to concertgoers is simple: The Electric Zoo experience is exceptional and worth being present for. Molly can cause you to not only miss the moment, alienate your friends and have an overall adverse and unpleasant experience … but can also make you sick and can even be fatal. Fans will experience how great it is to “Come To Life” at one of our concerts from lights, sounds and crowds.

Watch “The Molly” below.

  1. Random Stranger: “Hey. For $20 I can make you feel like the dude in the Molly video.”
    Random Teenager: (Pulls out $20.)

  2. The problem is without the Mali, the show sucks. Everyone knows that, even the fans.

  3. being really high on mdma can make you severely annoying to people around you, and i think that if anything is a good deterrent, considering how people take it to feel connected but just end up alienating everyone. not sure if the psa really got that message through but hey, at least it tried

    • I get what they were going for.

      Of course, people also consume booze, coke, weed and virtually every other drug on earth in order to feel connected, and make themselves incredibly annoying in the process. I kinda think you have to live through it to see how that works (or doesn’t work).

  4. that’s right. it’s the molly. (i imagine saying this like principal skinner said ‘it’s the reed.”) not the dehydration or, conversely, the overhydration. or the tons of adulterants that are in whatever shit they’re buying. pure mdma doesn’t cause any of that bullshit. except for the exuberance, i suppose.

    • Actually, MDMA is neurotoxic. OWWWOOOOOOOOO!

      • i never said it wasn’t. of course it is. any drug is if you take too much of it. but this whole demonization of mdma like it’s the sole cause of all these deaths is ridiculously. people howl out of their butts way too much.

  5. I think that guy in the PSA is a professional PSA actor, because he is also in the Planned Parenthood vasectomy PSA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuZmF6e4Ay8 … check it out, lol.

    What a bummer that guy, first he gets a vasectomy and then he dies at a rave.
