Metro Manners "Seat Blocking"
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has teamed with creative production studio Lord Danger and Director Mike Diva to present a new campaign which takes a truly original approach to an everyday subject: manners. Close encounters with abysmal behavior on public busses and trains can make simple transgressions feel monstrous and lead to sticky situations. A serious finger wagging approach is easily ignored. Enter: Rude Dude & Super Kind in "Metro Manners." Rude Dude is a furry manifestation of bad manners: a seat-hogging, door-blocking, food-spilling monster. Super Kind is a J-Pop star by day, Super Hero by night played by Anna Akana who takes on Rude Dude’s transgressions with synth-tastic song.
