Don’t Be a Dick: The Massage


rkwatson | June 29, 2010

The final part of the series, sadly starring me since we ran out of actresses. Oh god, the horror! It’s based on an actual post to Reddit.com/r/skeptic.

This short film is one of four Public Service Announcements (PSAs) for skeptics, atheists, and others who need a bit of help when it comes to being social and friendly while still staying true to their (lack of) belief.

This episode stars Rebecca Watson and Sid Rodrigues.
