Social responsibility is becoming something that is expected in society, but there's still a lot of people out there who refuse to take such a responsibility for their actions.

The company Sleepthinker produced a humorous video showcasing a product that would permanently lower a person's IQ. In the video, Cornelius Grouppe talks about the benefits of lowering one's intelligence. He says that life becomes much easier when a person's dumb. The video then takes an interesting direction when he talks about the side effects of having a low IQ, which include intolerance towards people of different races, sexual orientation and economical stature.

This clever way of addressing social issues is an amusing direction that several companies can take if they ever decide to be socially responsible.
