If you want to get New Yorkers’ attention, you’ll have to do something drastic…like hiring surrealist director David Lynch (Eraserhead) to direct a “Clean Up New York” PSA.  Apparently, the rampant littering problem in New York was slightly more concerning than the ravenous hordes of blood-thirsty rats that seethed beneath the city streets.  This PSA stops just short of a full-scale outbreak of bubonic plague.  All because you couldn’t be bothered to throw away your popsickle wrapper.  For shame.  Hit the jump to check it out.

Here’s Lynch’s anti-littering PSA, followed by one of the creepiest scenes in cinematic history from Lynch’s Eraserhead:
