Anti-Cocaine PSA Featuring Pablo the Drug Mule Dog

Pablo the Drug Mule Dog wants addicts to “Talk to Frank” in this anti-cocaine PSA put out by the UK which features poor Pablo with his chest and stomach cut open to hide coke. 

The “Talk to Frank” video begins with Pablo the Drug Mule Dog narrating his ordeal. He asks, “You know that feeling you get when you wake up in a basement with a gaping hole in your chest? No? Well, I’ve had better mornings. Turns out, I’ve been used to smuggle drugs into this country.”

Pablo the drug mule dog then narrates a day in the life with cocaine users. At the end of the story, an 800 number and website appear that read “Talk to Frank.”

“Talk to Frank” is a very informative website with a supportive community offering help for those who are addicted to drugs or concerned friends and family who fear their loved ones are addicted to them.

Shocking Public Service Ads like the UK’s “Talk to Frank”, starring Pablo the drug mule dog are, in my opinion, one of many great ways to reach out to those who are addicted to drugs or know someone who is. And, as disturbing as it may be to see a dog whose body cavity is used for drug smuggling, it’s a harsh reality that happens everyday whether we know it or not.
