Kids, Don’t Share Photos of Your Willy, Warns Cute but Very Sad British PSA

Because this is what happens if you do

We live in a pretty amazing time. We can inhale information and imagery to the point where the excess spills over and blows away as fast as it arrived. This is great and all, but if you're a parent trying to raise kids in this torrent of data, you know how hard it is keeping them safe from the deluge of inappropriate content.

And then there's teaching them how to manage their own data. How do you give your children the right tools to understand the viral age?

Well, Leo Burnett Change in London (which also did that chilling Cosmo cover for another social cause) and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children present this rather candid anecdote of the implications of sharing personal data virtually. In this case, it's a boy named Alex who's taken a photo of his, erm, willy—and who is shown the potentially terrible consequences of Snapchatting the pic to someone he trusts.

Take a look below. And thanks a lot, Carlos Danger.
