Being the Deso...
What are peoples thoughts on the designated driver campaign now showing on channels like V and MTV? Do you think it works?

If you havent seen it, here it is.

Media Player
The Deso - MAFMAD 2012 winning film - Make a Film Make a Difference - YouTube

My thoughts.
- Looks like they got the words worst andosound look alike. Shoulda shelled out the cash for the real thing.
- Who calls it a deso anyway?
- Not a bad campaign though, but no one will take it seriously.

I dunno where you are from but in Brissy I always heard it as Deso.

'You not drinking?

Nah i'm Deso tonight.'


But yeah, the type of people who dont really care about having a deso wont have their minds changed by a shit song.
Crazy people are ace doorslammers.

I don't get it. Why doesn't everyone just chuck in like $10 for a taxi ?

Deso by default IMO (if you've gotto work early in the morning, or you're hungover or whateva), but nominating one of your mates to drive you all around like a bunch of little kids is just stupid

For this exact reason, I've never been "Deso" once in my life. Pre planning to be the sober guy and watch all your mates get liquid and have a good night seems fucking stupid if you have any other possible option.

I've never once heard the term 'deso' in Brisbane. I've always heard it referred to 'designated dickhead'.

Agreed. Or DESO number plates.

It's for people that live in the boonies - if you're trying to get back to Penrith from the Cross, chucking in $10 each ain't going to get you very far.

THIS FFS unless someone specifically doesn't want to drink (ie my flatmate often offers to drive on a friday night as she works early on a saturday.

Additionally how often have we all been to dinner parties etc where a couple turns up with one person 'driving tonight' ... only to find they've switched 2 hours later when someone accidentally a hundred shots etc.

Should have used the Porkers' "Designated Drinker":

But we're fools if we sit back and stare at the ground
While the weasels and analysts sing
If we want our place in history, we can't let the frustration
Drive us to fashionable drinking again

Even more so if you live in the country and you've got a 50km drive to the nearest town with nightlife and no taxis/PT. we always had a deso when we went out as teenagers, whether they actually stayed sober though was another matter.

Supervising adult has to be under the limit if accompanying a learner. True story.

we had a little black pet "deso" back in the day-he loved his job, he would drive anywhere all we had to do was shout out the suburb/location.... we even took him on holidays with us where he did the dishes, one day he lost it and pulled a knife so we had to let him go- he was a good worker tho.
