The first video with the monster parents doesn't affect me today as I am not a parent nor plan to be for a long time. However, I can see how this video could affect loving parents and might stop them from taking that last drink. However, I think that adults that are already alcoholics might not care about this video.

The 2nd video of the brains didn't really make sense to me. It was two very quick pictures of brains but they didn't look different enough for me to understand what they were trying to show. I think this one could have more meaning if it had more detail.

The 3rd video of the ex-smoker was disturbing. This video I think is the most realistic because it shows the long-term affects of smoking that people don't think about today. My dad has a friend that is in this exact situation and lost his ability to talk because of throat cancer due to smoking.

The last video didn't really make sense to me without the text around it explaining what it was about. Even the females narrative was not clear enough during the video. The part that pulled it all together was the last 5 seconds when her boyfriend took out his drugs. I think it would have made more sense if the female had handed money to the boyfriend at the end.
