Watch the PSA That Shocked Some Celebrities, and Will Shock You Too Grim health plea from End7

If you don't plan on eating for a while, check out the video below from the End7 project, dedicated to ending some truly terrifying infections known as "neglected tropical diseases." The clip, called "How to Shock a Celebrity," created by Wunderman U.K., begins by showing you the reactions of several actors and musicians watching footage of tropical-disease sufferers, which you are then able to watch yourself. Admittedly, the term "celebrity" is used a bit loosely here, since few of the featured talents are household names (in America, at least). The term "truly terrifying" is not used loosely. The video is compelling, emotional and deeply troubling. Check it out, and then read more about the celebrities and diseases featured in it after the jump. Hat tip to my friend Suzanne for sharing this on Facebook.
