David Lynch's 21-year-old "We Care About New York" anti-rat, anti-littering PSA is suddenly infesting the blogosphere. (Has there ever been a pro-rat commercial? Apart from Gingrich's campaign ads, I mean.) Lynch's monochrome clip has an Eraserhead doomsday/industrial feel. The close-up of a rat's claws is especially unnerving. Those tiny hands look almost human. No wonder rats can play guitar. The New Yorkers shown here are pretty scary too. They litter compulsively—and one biker guy clutches a torch, Statue of Liberty style.
