Two-minute Electric Zoo video has bad dancing and 'golden waterfalls'

Electric Zoo is a three-day electronic music festival in New York, and it is very worried about you. To make sure festival visitors avoid bad trips, its organizers enlisted Dexter writer James Manos Jr. to create a two-minute PSA that warns people about the dangers of MDMA — often known by excitable youngsters in the US as "Molly." Two people died from an overdose of the drug at the festival last year, but the new PSA might not be the most effective tactic in halting its use. According to the video, the dangers include an impressive flop sweat, the uncontrollable desire to close your eyes tight and spin around on the spot, and "golden waterfalls." Sounds uncomfortable.
