The Seattle Times reports that a regional government partnership in Puget Sound received a $27,000 grant from the state’s Department of Ecology to produce a YouTube video encouraging people to, uh, pick up the poop.
The video was released by Puget Sound Starts Here, which describes itself as a partnership of 57 cities and counties dedicated to improving water quality in the Puget Sound area.
Produced by Peter Furia with Seedwell, the mock rap video features a spoof of Blackstreet’s 1990’s song “No Diggity.”
Here’s the video. By government standards, $27,000 doesn’t seem all that bad:
Hopefully the state saves money by using the same video to remind people to vote next election day — it’s the perfect metaphor.
