Ben Stiller PSA for the Onion News Network warns of Shaken Manchild Syndrome

Posted on

Ben Stiller has paired with The Onion News Network for this very special public service announcement about one the country’s second leading cause of adult child death: Shaken Manchild Syndrome. In the heartfelt piece, Stiller recalls his own dark days as a manchild, which lasted until the age of 42, and urges people not to lose control with dealing with the not-so grown-ups in their life.

Two things, readers: 1) The website flashed at the end of the video doesn’t exist. Do you think they put a recovering manchild in charge of creating it and he just never “did it later”? And 2) Will you Tweet your support for this cause? If so, please use the hashtag: #ILoveYouButGetTheHellOutofMyHouse

The episode featuring the startling and eye-opening clip airs Friday, March 18 at 10 p.m. on IFC. The season finale airs March 25.
