Stop caring. Stop it, right now!
That's the message of the YouTube-affiliated Official Comedy channel's "Amanda Bynes PSA" video.
Filmed in melodramatic black and white, the satirical public service announcement urges everyone to "stop talking about Amanda Bynes." The troubled 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star has been in the news constantly of late following a string of bizarre social media posts and semi-incoherent rants culminating in her arrest May 23 for allegedly throwing a bong out of the window of her Manhattan apartment.
"Just think, somewhere, right now, at this very moment, scientists are working to cure cancer," one of the video's three narrators intones. "And you just retweeted, 'I want @drake to murder my vagina,'" another says, referencing a real tweet sent by Bynes in March.
The PSA suggests that instead of talking about Bynes, you should perhaps get a dog, or take said dog for a walk. Maybe catch up on "Breaking Bad" episodes, or even call back your parents.
While the situation may be dire, Official Comedy reminds viewers that all is not lost, just yet:
"We have the power to end this epidemic ... so please, stop caring."
