Patton Oswalt
The Alamo Drafthouse has a simple rule: If you talk or text during a movie, they kick you out. Just ask Patton Oswalt. 

In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!

The world’s greatest public service announcement just got even better.

While visiting the Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz for a special screening of Young Adult, comedian Patton Oswalt’s reimagined the theater’s infamous voicemail-turned-PSA, complete with an extended intro.

The original clip from June not only went viral, with 2.3 million views date, but was applauded by theatergoers nationally, including Anderson Cooper.

“The Alamo Drafthouse is brilliant! I wish we had a cinema like that in Belfast,” commented YouTube user Velmac42
