Keep it Sober, Stupid!

Foundation for Alcohol Awareness and Responsibility –  (formerly Century Council) a national not-for-profit leader in the fight to eliminate drunk driving and underage drinking and is funded by the following distillers: Bacardi U.S.A., Inc.; Beam, Inc.; Brown-Forman; Constellation Brands, Inc.; DIAGEO; Hood River Distillers, Inc.; and Pernod Ricard USA. I Know Everything consists of a video with a voiceover suggesting that teens ‘know everything,’ for example:

•             I know not to text and drive

•             I know not to drink alcohol and drive, it’s dangerous, illegal, and just plain stupid

•             I know my parents can take away my keys anytime

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 15 to 20 year olds.
