Stevie Wonder Says, “Don’t Drive Drunk” in this PSA from 1985


When this PSA aired on TV, my sister told me that Stevie had to do it because he had been arrested for drunk driving. Of course, I believed her, and went and told all my friends, who promptly mocked me for what felt like forever. I guess it doesn’t make much sense, but it makes for a much better back story to this PSA in my opinion.

Still it was pretty catch and proof that Mr. Wonder is talented enough to sing about anything and make it sound good.
