LA's New Anti-Terrorism Commercial: If You Smell Something, Say Something

The LAPD is running a new commercial for their iwatch program, explained as "a neighborhood watch for the whole city," featuring a rainbow of presumably struggling actors who all have one thing in common: the ability to creep us out. James Hibberd over at The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed blog wasn't stretching when he called this "Orwellian." It's basically the very definition. Shudder. (Also: "smell something?")
