The Los Angeles Transport Authority Has Made A BABYMETAL-Inspired PSA, And We Have Questions

That's one way to make an impression.

Public Service Announcements are one of those necessary evils. They're important, but not usually something you'd choose to watch. 

That stops now. The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transport Authority have made a PSA that's not only watchable, but genuinely entertaining. And it's inspired by BABYMETAL.

Now, BABYMETAL might seem like a pretty niche reference to make for a PSA. How did the LAMTA land on a BABYMETAL reference? What is going on here?

The PSA drives people to be courteous users of public transport, and just put on their damn headphones to listen to music. A message we can all get on board with, really.

The message is basically “It’s easy and nice to ride Metro Bus or Rail when we all have good Metro Manners. Don’t be a Rude Dude when you ride Metro, be kind like Super Kind. Please don’t play loud music on buses and trains.”

Anyway, it has to be seen to be believed:
