Hello! My name is Sarah. Last November I lost one of my good friends to the Choking Game. Kris was only 15 years old. Kris and I had known each other since 1st grade. He was like my brother. His death inspired me to write a public service announcement. I wrote, produced, and directed it with the help of local professional film makers, and I used actors who had some connection with Kris and who were all in the age range of 9 to 18. Children between these ages are most likely to participate in the Choking game. I figured that kids would listen to there peers about this issue, instead of having parents and adults talk down at them. For those of you who don't know, the choking game is when kids cut off blood flow to the brain and when they release the pressure, they get a "high". You can pass out in 10 seconds and have severe brain damage you can't recover from in 3 minutes. You can DIE in less than 4 minutes! No teenager should learn about this game the way I did, by losing their friend. Please talk to your friends. Speak out and don't do this. The Choking game is not a Game! Go to for more information. Also please rate! I would love to know what you think!

Thanks to everyone who helped on this project. Be on the look out for the 30 second version.

This PSA is Emmy Nominated.
