Enjoy the Beach, Kids, Don't Mind the Sandcastle of Death Drowning PSA isn't all fun and games

Ad agency Taxi crafted this unsettling—OK, nightmarish—sand sculpture on Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver to remind people about the dangers of water. "The beach isn't all fun and games," said the sign next to the hellish vision of bug-eyed drowning death. National Drowning Prevention Week in Canada runs through this Sunday. Check out the video below, featuring several freaked-out kids. Credits after the jump. Via Ads of the World.
