This fake commercial has a heartwarming message about replying to drunk texts
A hilarious new video from sketch-comedy group Lavo Lyfe tackles a familiar late night foe: drunk texting.
If you’ve ever received a “sup?” or sent a “hey” while you were out drinking with pals and staring at your phone, the video will have you rolling on the floor with laughter. “Too real,” you’ll tell yourself.
The video parodies the ASPCA’s famously depressing advertisements. It’s set to the same music, Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel,” but its sweeping slow shots feature no kittens or puppies. Instead, drunk girls cling to their phones and their drinks as they weep, hoping against hope to receive a text back.
The hilariously earnest representative for the #TextHerBack campaign urges viewers to respond to all those late-night texts: “You can save a girl from two slices of pepperoni pizza and a side of ranch.”
Mel Owens and Eva McEnrue, the brains behind that Craigslist ad for fall boyfriends, wrote the sketch, and they plan to release more next month. Keep an eye on the Lavo Lyfe YouTube channel for more laugh-til-you-cry videos.
